Mangino (1027) - Mississippi, USA - NOV 27, 2004
Pours a murky red/brown, small white head. Aroma is malty, with a kick or hops. Flavor is spicy, malt, brown sugar, astringent palate. A nice brew. Thanks to Heemer.

flemdawg (561) - Rowlett, Texas, USA - MAR 5, 2005
Hazy reddish brown color, like cider, with a thin off white to light tan head. The aroma was spiced apples, cherries, some wheat and sour grapes. Moslty wheaty in the taste with a bit of honey, some apples and a bitter wheaty finish. Not much in the way of a mouth feel, but almost watery though. Not outstanding but not horrible.

Hazy, red-brown body with a tan head. No lacing.
Malt and sweetness dominate the aroma. Fruity. Some alcohol.
Carmelized malt with some cinnamon dominate the flavor. Some plum/raisin hints.
Rich and full mouthfeel but with a stripping finish of alcohol.

jefcon (1736) - Arlington, Virginia, USA - DEC 29, 2004
2004 Edition. Cloudy but flat-looking, like a cider. Sour cherry notes with another soapy aroma with the hoppiness. Tasting adds some pine and peppery spice to those presences. Palate is sharp at first, but diminishes wihtout souring. Not my favorite winter warmer and low IBUs.

goldtwins (4320) - Nesconset, New York, USA - AUG 1, 2005
Poured brown with a hint of red. Aroma and flavor of sugar, hops and some pepper. Seemed kind of odd after the previous beers I had. Semi-dry bitterness for the finish. Need to try on its own to be fair.

millstadtguy (50) - Millstadt, Illinois, USA - NOV 24, 2006
Pours dark brown with a decent head. Aroma of pine & hops. Flavor starts out with carmel malt, quickly followed by a sharp hop & pine taste. I liked last years version better but still not bad.

Bottled. Best before 2/1/7. Beer is cloudy, medium-brown. Head is initially average, off-white, frothy. Diminishing.<P> Aroma is lightly malty with notes of toasted grain and bread crust, trace flickering hints of coffee and molasses; Hoppy with a heavy note of resin/pine, light herbal note; Yeasty with a light note of basement.<P> The flavor is moderately-to-heavily bittersweet, lightly acidic with a long, moderately bittersweet finish. Rubbing alcohol in the finish and retros<P> The body is light, the texture is watery and the carbonation is lively.
