Poured a clear copper. Some caramel notes and a hint of spice but unspectacular WABeerFiend (413) - - NOV 20, 2016
Best by 03.21.17. A: Caramel, red grape, and cola. A: See through reddish amber body. T: Follows the nose, but with some very slight, almost undetectable mint that blends with bubbles on the back end. P: Slick, but balanced by bubbles. O: I thought that this was going to be an IPA or a winter warmer. Alaskan should give some indication on the label that this is an old ale. Anyway, it’s simple, but it’s a nice old ale. thegreenrooster (4364) - St.louis, Missouri, USA - NOV 5, 2016
Pour is a clear copper with a large white head. Aroma Is sweet caramel malt with some mint leaves. Flavor Is more sweetish caramel malt with some wintergreen and cherry. Kind of different and I liked it the more I drank it. Kind of a spruced up, no pun intended, amber ale vipinvelp (4370) - Velp, NETHERLANDS - MAY 2, 2016
Clar amber, no foam remaining. Not too strong in aroma, but nice taste. Light carmale, some barley, bit sweet. Old Ale. (Houston 201605) MrBeerFanatic (1052) - Indianapolis, Indiana, USA - FEB 6, 2016
Pours medium amber with a thin laced head. Aromas grass, toffee, hay, spruce, slight caramel. Flavors toffee, slight caramel, hay, grass and slight maize. Medium sweet. This needs more concentrated malt and complexity.

Tap, The Beer Grotto, Ann Arbor, MI. Clear copper. Metallic caramel aroma. Sweet, some floral hops. Mostly sweet. andrewje41 (3741) - Kenmore, Washington, USA - JAN 16, 2016
Here is a situation where I expected one thing and was very wrong. Draft pour pint at Frankies. Clear golden pour with an active fizz head. Sweet berry aroma and flavor. Very soft hops, and a fruity, sweet malt finish. Tasty. SODAK14 (376) - Rapid City, South Dakota, USA - JAN 8, 2016
Really nice dark brew. Pours dark with a small head. Easy to drink a few but now sue how many after that...kind of a heavy tasting beer. J_man (996) - Tustin, California, USA - JAN 6, 2016
Aroma seems to be ripe red fruit and caramel. Fairly clear medium yellow body with a white head. The fruit comes through as cherry and strawberry with a strange slightly sour over-ripeness. Body is fairly thin and kind of watery. I’m not getting any spruce/pine flavors. I’ve had this before and I remember it being very different, so I may have a bad bottle. I’ll re-rate after trying another one. solidfunk (8838) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - JAN 2, 2016
A lot of unfermented sugar in here and some citrus tang. Very syrupy consistency, sweet and tangy finish. Doesn’t come together very well. Tap at Alaska Lodge at SEATAC.
