A little lighter in mouth feel than I would expect. And for BridgePort this ones hops profile is subdued. Its still a good one acertain (249) - Seattle, Washington, USA - DEC 16, 2005
A decent, if a little bland beer. Not much aroma, not much flavor, but at least it’s not unplesant. More hoppy than malty, with a hint of spices. Mostly just a decent ale. dwedin (249) - Happy Valley, Oregon, USA - JAN 1, 2007
Rusty brown with a tan head that quickly fades to a thin film. Roasted malt and hint of spice aromas. Sweet up front with a smooth bitterness. Dates in the lingering finish. kbjames (244) - Utah, USA - NOV 30, 2004
This was a decent beer with OK taste. It was fairly creamy with a decent amount of malt to it. I would recommend this to anyone for the style. Hab40oz (242) - Grants Pass, Oregon, USA - OCT 27, 2004
2004 edition: pours a dark red color, thin head but thick creamy lacing. Much like Snowcap but a little more malty and sweet, very smooth and well balanced, not as hoppy and bitter as Snowcap. A very solid Winter Brew.

Has a light hint of ginger and spices aroma. Medium sweet dry taste with a burnt malt finish. leeburg (230) - Juneau, Alaska, USA - FEB 5, 2009
Brown/amber, weak off-white head. Pretty light aromas. A little caramel, some spice, fresh fruits. Not much stands out on the tongue either. Crisp hoppiness though. Easy drinking (which is the only real compliment for sort of bland beers). TLNash886 (228) - Idaho, USA - NOV 19, 2009
Pours reddish-gold with medium off-white head into a Guinness pint. Aroma of mild malty sweetness and some raisin. Flavor stays the same; mild malty, somewhat toasty taste with a little added sweetness. Soft carbonation with a great mouthfeel. Surprisingly, this had a nice warming sensation despite its relatively low abv. Nothing superb, but sitting down by the fire with one of these is great. davidflores99 (225) - Signal HIll, California, USA - MAR 8, 2006
This was ok, a bit sweet, with a caramel finish, went down pretty smooth. I didn’t think it was anything special, but I thought I’d give it a try. herbstress3 (221) - Bellingham, Washington, USA - DEC 16, 2002
Great color- matches the red label. Very small head. Bitter vinegar traces on my tongue. Scents of nutmeg and somewhat spicy flavor but fades oh so quickly.
