Fruity hoppy bitter and malty at the same time. Dark fruit and light spice. I like where this was going, even if it doesn’t quite get there. shrubber85 (11618) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - DEC 20, 2012
Bottle. Orange-caramel malt and orange peel aroma. Dark amber with large head. Sweet caramel malt and moderately bitter orange peel hops flavor. Light body. Okay. daknole (11402) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - FEB 8, 2009
Bottle. Reddish brown pour with a thin ligh head. Aroma is fairly weak with some malt and a bit of spice. Flavor isn’t all that bad. Some caramel malt flavor, some nice hops and is fairly smooth. Not the best xmas beer ever, but far from the worst. BVery (11364) - Plymouth, Minnesota, USA - JAN 12, 2009
UPDATED: DEC 30, 2013 BOTTLE: copper/amber appearance, taste was citrus/orange/spice with caramel and malt. hopscotch (11246) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JAN 1, 2003
The nose is malty and floral with notes of caramel and pine.
A hazy, mohogany brew with a frothy, medium sized off-white head. Decent lacing.
Bitter, malty, tart and spicey. Complex.
Long, pungent yet dry finish with clover and straw at the wee end.
A very good winter warmer.

Thanks to RobertsReality for this. Slightly turbid dark copper with a huge off-white head. Aroma of malt, hopcit, fruit, spice, slight peat. Tastes malty, with fruit and spice, and a medium palate. Very nice. kp (10880) - Woodstock, Georgia, USA - SEP 1, 2007

clear dark amber, whispy head, sweet spicy malt aroma with touches of nutmeg and clove, rich malt flavor with lots of hop bitterness,
all malt and tasty spices, lots of sweetness, not too much oxidation,
Aroma: 7/10; Appearance: 6/10; Flavor: 5/10; Palate: 5/10; Overall: 10/20
The score was calculated based upon the notes and an old scoring system.
12 zo. bottle. Pours a hazy orange amber color with a large creamy beige head. The aroma is rather subdued but has hints of bready malt, caramel, and light spices. The flavor is more bready malt, light caramel, with a decent bitterness in the finish. Nothing over the top here, but nothing off either.

Tasted from a bottle at the Parade of Darks in Denver, Colorado. Lightish orange appearance that’s fairly. Mildly spiced with nutmeg. Orange tasting brew that has a light to medium body and somewhat spiced. Kind of weird and not all that impressive. marcus (10682) - Sacramento, California, USA - JAN 9, 2009
Bottle from bhensonb. This orange copper ale poured with a modest beige head and a sweet floral aroma. There are lots of spices in the caramel malt base, along with some pine and brown sugar taste and a slightly bitter hop finish. Pretty tasty. Thanks Bill.
