A shade darker Copper, Good Head, Some Lacing. Same as others from sample pack, lacks flavor sharpness. Bland and subdued. Tastes Malty, Light Bitter and finishes little sour. Enjoyed it the least from this sample pack. Drinkable, but meh... Pass it....

shrubber85 (10885) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - DEC 31, 2012
Bottle. Lightly sweet barley malt aroma. Golden yellow with small head. Sweet caramel malt flavor. Nice clean lager but not really any typical bock characteristics.

Dark brown, almost opaque. Molasses, oatmeal, raisin, hint of walnut. Oily feel. Relatively sweet. Nice seasonal.

jonas (6991) - Garching b. Mnchen, GERMANY - NOV 7, 2012
Bottle, just said winter ale on the label. Light oxidized roasted and fruity aroma. Dark brown, offwhite layer. Fullbodied, light oily mouthfeel - quite a bit residual sweetness, nutty, roast, herbal hop balance - not entirely harmonious IMO.

madvike (3215) - Middleton, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 19, 2012
Bottle - Deep mahogany pour with a thinnish tan head. Nose is moderately sweet, bready malt, with a bit of molasses and next to no hopping. Taste is watered-down sweet bread, muted toffee and raisin notes, and a mildly sweet malt finish. Ample carbonation fluffs up the body a bit, but its pretty slick and thin. About what I expected.

Aroma is malts, berries and an off note. The flavor is mild caramel malts, berries and a smooth finish.

patrick767 (4032) - fort wayne, Indiana, USA - MAY 7, 2012
bottle - Pours dark amber with a small off-white head. It has minimal aroma. The flavor is very sweet with some caramel. It tastes off though. Im not sure what it is about it. I dont think its infected, but whatevers going on, its not good. Thin. Odd. Meh.

UPDATED: MAR 2, 2012 Cola coloured, fluffy tan head. Ok, heres where it gets strange...I looked at the other reviews and mine is in left field.....maybe a bad bottle....dont know....heres my take: Aroma is spice and Tomato...Taste is vaguely like a weak bloody mary mix....Thats what I got out of it....Im going to try another just to check myself. Strangely, it wasnt that bad. Thats my justification for the mid-range rating. Ill get back to this. TAKE 2: Different bottle, (of course) purchased at different location.....same result, maybe not as much tomatoe-zing, but its there. Other reviewers report iron and metallics, maybe thats whats throwing me off. Im going to let this stand and try next winters offering.

An unoffensive and forgettable brew, but decent enough to drink. Minimal bitterness. Mild maltiness. Faint notes of raisins or prunes. A little too subtle for me.
