UPDATED: DEC 20, 2014 $2.49 for a 16 oz. bottle at store, recommended by a guy who works there. Wow, had low expectations after reading these comments but really tasted like a fuller, more potent version of Bell’s Winter Ale. Very soothing, creamy, malty and inviting. Different wrapper than what’s featured in the ratebeer photo, will definitely try again.

Pours a pale but rich gold with a frothy and very lacy snow-white head. Smells of sweet pale malt, very faint grassy hops. Hops are a bit more pronounced in the taste but there’s a good amount of alcohol heat here too. Keeps the beer on the dry side although there is considerable sweetness from the malt. Mouth is semi-sweet with a dry herbal aftertaste. Warming alcohol in the belly. A good drinker. Decent malt liquor style beer.

Bottle. Golden colour, average fluffy head. Skunky and malty aroma. Sweet and alcoholic flavour with some skunkiness, malty and some hoppiness. Little bitter-sweet aftertaste.

Bottle shared with a bunch of folks at DougShoemaker’s Decemberfest 2006 - courtesy of Radek. Pale yellow with a tiny head. Aroma of sweetened paint thinner. Thin body. Flavour isn’t as bad as I expected - or at least, there was none of the burnt plastic or raw alcohol I expected based on the aroma. Still not great though, just some vague malt & hop notes, with a quick finish.

mds (2256) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 18, 2006
Bottle. Clear yellow with a small white head and lace. The aroma is floral and perfumey, alcohol, and cereal grain. Plain flavour that is palatable and not entirely offensive. Cookiesh faint malts.

Fin (10917) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - DEC 18, 2006
Bottle, picked up at the Russian delicatessens on Cowley Rd, Oxford 18-12-06. Pours a quite light golden colour, initially seemed heavily carbonated resulting in a flurry of belching, but it and I calmed down a bit. This is way too harsh, alcohol too present, strange sweetness,in fact I can see me slinging the rest of this bottle before I finish this rating, bloody awful, nope that’s it down the drain for you boyo!

bobaidan (530) - Southington, Connecticut, USA - DEC 15, 2006
Pours very light with a big white head. Very metallic smelling. Flavor reminds me of the beer I drank in college. Cheap, but potent. Not a great or even good beer.

blankboy (7808) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 15, 2006
Bottle shared with the gang at Decemberfest 2006 -- courtesy of Radek Kliber. Pours a clear pale yellow with a small diminishing white head. Aroma is sweet with slightly sour grain, a little vegetal and with some light hops and alcohol. Flavour: Bleargh! Watery, grainy, vegetal and boozy. Yuck. Light to medium bodied. Glad I only got a small serving, this isn’t very good at all.

TheBeerOrg (2145) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - DEC 13, 2006
Pours yellow with a fully receding white head. Aroma of exudes the sweetness, sweet bready grains, sweet musky lager aroma. Taste is no different, sweetness, a bit harsh, but the alcohol is well hidden. Mouthfeel is full bodied and sticky with lively carbonation. Not impressive, but not terrible.

rudolf (2360) - Buffalo, New York, USA - DEC 10, 2006
Bottle @ Doug’s. Thanks to Radek. Very light blonde, thin white head. Nose is sweet hay/caramel, alcohol. Flavor is sweet malt, alcohol. Not much going on here really.
