355ml bottle. Golden pour with a slowly-forming foamy head that sticks for ahwile after it finally forms. The arom ais hoppy with herbs, a sherry note, and some orange peel. Flavor is very english-hoppy/yeasty, herbal, earthy, some savory notes, birch beer note, orange peel, toasted malt, slightly watery mouthfeel, dry and bittersweet finish. Definitely stuff to savor on a cold day. argo0 (14127) - Washington DC, USA - JUN 14, 2006

"light-medium bodied, leaving me wanting more from this winter beer. the malt nose and flavor, with a slightly dry hop finish is pleasing, if a little on the light side. probably won’t be back for this one."
