Deep clear amber pour with minimal frothy head. Sweet and spicy aroma with grapefruit and pine. Taste is moderate sweet with a crisp finish. Medium body and hints of chocolate also pervade. Pretty good beer. Beergeek23322 (2643) - Chester, Virginia, USA - NOV 8, 2013
10/13/2010. From bottle. Pours red brown with a tan head. Malty aromas with spice, caramel and bready notes. Good hop balance which shows through all the way. toml219 (284) - California, USA - SEP 27, 2013
Apperance - A very nice golden red
Aroma- A caramel hoppy bouquet
T/P - A distinct malty hoppy flavor slight spice bite to it
Tends to linger little too long with a bitter after taste
Overall- Not bad a little too hoppy for my liking, but if you like that then it would be for you.

Bottle. Floral hoppy aroma with a slight earthiness. Pours reddish amber with very little head. Taste is smooth caramel malt to start with some earthiness to it. Finishes very dry with a fairly bitter finish.

Draught nitro at Harris Grill. Poured dark amber with white head. Mild aromas of citrus pine. Quite smooth citrus mildly bitter taste. Good for summer.

A - Pours a clear deep red amber with an off white that retains very well
S - Biscuity malt with a dose of green citrus hops mixed in. Water chestnuts, faint hints of spice reside in the background.
T - Caramel malt with a tinge of metal. Citrus and pine hops back the malt and provide good levels of flavor well as some peppery spice. Some maple floral sweetness combined with a nutmeg sort of spice. Hard to pin down. Has some strawberry rhubarb tang on the finish. Aftertaste is a balance of malt and clean hops.
M - Full bodied, lush type of carbonation.
A different take on the style for sure. Low on the spice level. Nice malt and nice hops. It actually makes me think of summer rather than winter. A great beer on any occasion.

Bottle. Pours dark copper with a small, tan head. Aroma of sweet caramel, spices, dark fruits and a touch of nuts. Slightly sweet flavor of caramel, spices, dark fruits, light nuts and a touch of chocolate. Similar finish with some added earthy hops notes. BeerKurve (520) - - APR 4, 2013
Dark Brown color. Floral Hops, Caramel, Yeast and Malts on the nose. Taste has a fair caramel flavor along with some strong piney hop notes; Aftertaste has a a bit of a resin-like feel to it, which I think hurts the flavor. Body is fairly light and very low on carbonation, and it’s got a very creamy texture to it. Aside from the creamy texture and palate, there isn’t really anything special here. porkdiggity (109) - Ohio, USA - MAR 28, 2013
Another underwhelming beer. Ok aroma and flavor, but nothing distinguishing about it.
