Cold 12oz bottle: Pours a clear reddish amber with minimal light tan bubbles. Rich malts, wood, earthy hops, fruit, spice and some molasses. Oily texture and moderately carbonated. Ending is warm, malty and sweet with notes of fruit and flowers.

Clear deep amber, foamy beige head, some lacing. Floral aroma with hint of caramel. Hops very evident with taste as well. Long finish.

AWMiller (512) - Mansfield, Texas, USA - DEC 16, 2011
Quite the hoppy winter ale with just enough sweet caramel undertones to make for an easy drinker. Having a hard time with the classification of this brew - some sites show this to be a strong ale but it is more along the lines of a hoppy amber ale. Id recommend some spicy chicken fajitas or perhaps some spicy fish tacos to pair up with this brew.

12oz bottle. Aroma is a light hoppy scent. Appearance is a clear bronze. Taste is a hoppy but not bitter flavor. Some what sweet. Palate is sweet, but otherwise even. Overall, a good beer. My Dad loves it, and I agree it is a good pale ale like beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

shendrix (478) - Waukesha, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 1, 2007
A good brew for a winter evening, with a nose of cherries, a hint of honey, and some lightly earthy notes. Pouring amber with a medium laced head and rinsing across the palate with flavors of dark fruits balanced with a slight honey sweetness, a floral hoppy finish and a warming alcohol blanket.

Hoppy aroma backed by caramelized sugar, dough, and fresh malts. Sweet flavor. Pretty drinkable. Your swill drinking brother might like this.

peter (445) - Normal, Illinois, USA - JUN 13, 2006
Cloudy garnet with a tain oily broken head. Nose is brown sugar, plums, and alcohol. Flavour features some piney hops and dark fruits. Mouth is watery. Uninventive and reminicent of something from the shiner breweries.

foyle (415) - Wyoming, USA - MAR 2, 2014
Appearance: pours a 1" off white head that slowly recedes with some lacing. Amber color with plenty of streaming carbonation. Aroma: rich aroma of yeast rolls, pungent earthy hops, some caramel and raisins. Mouthfeel: medium bodied and a bit sticky with a pleasant finish. Flavor: complex combination of bread dough, sweet caramel and toffee, fruity raisin, significant bitter earthy hops and with a slight astringent alcohol burn in the finish. Overall: a pleasant sipper on a cold winter day and appropriate to the style.

leitrim65 (402) - Seattle, Washington, USA - FEB 7, 2005
Deep mahagoney color with brownish hues and a tan head. The aroma is a mild caramel malt sweetness. Light - medium bodied. Not overwhelming but sweet toffee, caramel, and malt flavors. Lacking in any punch at the finish. However, a pleasant winter ale.
