Pours a clear copper with a nice fluffy head. Nice balance that gives some bitterness and sweet malts. Nice ale.

GJF (1250) - Mount Vernon, Iowa, USA - JAN 2, 2014
It’s OK. Generally malty, sweetish, more like a nut brown than a strong ale. Starts out good but doesn’t hold up as it goes.

DTM (798) - Winters, California, USA - DEC 31, 2013
Bottle from winter sampler 12 pack. Solid beer. Malty goodness with a hint of holiday spice such as nutmeg and clove. Nice winter ale. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

jcnielsen (2108) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - DEC 31, 2013
Bottle. Pours an amber red color with white head. Caramel, sweet aromas. Caramel, candy sugar flavors. I am never a big fan of Oregon winter beers and this beer is no exception. Not bad, but definitely not very good.

two7offsuit (172) - Massachusetts, USA - DEC 31, 2013
Pours Amber in color with a small white head. Spicy and slightly hoppy. Decent but not great beer.

60minuteman (757) - Frazer, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 28, 2013
UPDATED: DEC 29, 2013 Excellent amber-reddish color and retaining white head. Intriguing spice, hop, citrus aroma. Taste is the same. A uniqueness to this beer makes me forget how quickly it can intoxicate me. I enjoyed it, but my experience was dampened by a lingering flavor of beer that stuck around beyond its welcome.

Travlr (11932) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - DEC 28, 2013
Draft. Clear golden color, thick white head. Aroma of buttetscotch candy. Taste is boozy spiced caramel. Tasty.

Hiero (127) - Dallas, Texas, USA - DEC 25, 2013
Spicy, bitter taste with a dry finish. Nice winter ale, great taste, yet refreshing.

UncleKorm (815) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - DEC 25, 2013
Bottle poured a slightly hazy orange hue w/ huge lasting off-white rocky head and sticky lacing. Moderate sharp hop aroma. Initial flavor is moderate sweet w/ a bold bitter finish of long duration. Tastes are pine, grass, and rye. Medium to full bodied, creamy mouthfeel and soft carbonation.

Poured from a bottle. Red in color with small amount of white head. Slightly hoppy and sweet. Good holiday beer.
