Beerdedone (3188) - Croydon, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 6, 2008
Bottle sampled. Pours a nice copper color with a one finger off-white head. Aroma of toasted malts, caramel, and some toffee. Flavor is moderatly sweet and smooth with caramel malts, toffee, light molasses and some mild spices. Decent brew.

bhensonb (13731) - Woodland, California, USA - FEB 2, 2008
Bottle from Liquid Solutions. Aroma of caramel accompanied by fruity notes - going from plum towards prune in a mild manner. Burnished copper color - it changes with lighting, and a white head that flattened, ringed and disappeared. Medium bodied with mild, fizzy carbonation. Body thins as carbonation departs. Flavor is malty/bready, balanced by decent bitterness. However, the fun thing is the fruit that dances around the hop and malt. I still find light plumminess. Perhaps they used floral hop. The finish is slightly drying, and the bitter stays around. It is just delightful.

Maria (10212) - Thisted, DENMARK - FEB 1, 2008
Warm amber with a nice head. The aroma is malty with notes of grain and caramel. The flavour is malty, slightly sweet with notes of grain and caramel and a light bitterness. Perhaps a bit monotonous, but OK. 2026

FlacoAlto (4133) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - JAN 24, 2008
Best By Date February 2009; Sampled January 2008
Pours with a frothy, initially three-finger thick, pale tan colored head. The beer is a brilliantly clear, light cranberry color, but shows a pretty, copper hue when held up to the light. The aroma is sweet and malty with just a touch of hop character. Aromatic notes of honey-like malt, soda crackers, chewy bread aromas as well as faint hop notes of grass and slight herbals are found in the nose. A pleasant aroma, though it is not overly characterful.

Sweet tasting, yet somewhat on the light side for the amount of sweetness. Sweet grain notes are noticed up front, but the finish has more of a washed out, grassy hop character to it. Cracker like malt notes that seem a bit on the stale side as well as some toasty grain notes are the most dominant note in the finish. this has a light-medium heft to it that makes it noticeable, but still easily quaffable.

Not a bad beer, but it does seem a little past its prime, though I wonder how fresh it is (it has another year to go according to the bottle date). I do like the chewy malt character and how quaffable the brew is.

Holdwine (1159) - Beertimore, Maryland, USA - JAN 5, 2008
I was thinking soft and mellow for a Winter ale and then I see Vienna lager and it makes sense. Easy drinking, wet hay notes, Some sweetness. A wee bit watery, but an nice all around brew.

urbnhautebourg (997) - Annapolis, Maryland, USA - DEC 10, 2007
I noted some raw grain notes in this otherwise very soft, mild brew, which I think did a lot for its overall flavor. There is nothing which is done wrong here, and much that is right (the sweetness is welcome and never overstated). A good beer.

fonefan (43166) - VestJylland, DENMARK - DEC 7, 2007
Bottle. Clear medium amber color with a large, frothy, good lacing, mostly lasting, off-white head. Aroma is moderate malty, roasted, light hoppy, grass. Flavor is moderate sweet and light bitter with a average duration. Body is light to medium, texture is watery, carbonation is soft. (301107)

Sigmund (6380) - Tau, NORWAY - DEC 2, 2007
500 ml bottle, courtesy of Cardinal pub, Stavanger. ABV is 5.4%. Deep golden brown to amber colour, large off-white head. Moderately spicy aroma, quite nice, with some notes of bakery, also a certain fruitiness. The flavour is quite fruity but also distinctly malty, notes of toffee and mild spices, decent hops in the finish. A lager well above average! A bit too much carbonation for my taste though.

nuplastikk (5672) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 30, 2007
16.9oz bottle. Golden-tan filtered color. Wonderfully sweet malt flavor with a light smoky/spicy taste in the background. Mellow and delicious, an awesome lager.

jmuhops (669) - Winchester, Virginia, USA - NOV 29, 2007
Pours hazy amber-brown with a large off-white head. Malty aroma: very sweet and bready, with a touch of raw grain. Light metallic notes. Caramel malt in the flavor alongside biscuity, tangy, almost rye-ish flavors. There’s a hint of smokiness that gives this one a winter-ish slant. Tasty, elegant little lager. Who cares which season it’s named after?
