Pretty average winter warmer, with some nice touches. Pours a. Ice Amber with a tan head. Smells of orange and nuttiness. Taste has orange, nuts, a bit of cinnamon and banana. Had on tap at Racoon Lodge. slowrunner77 (12588) - Reno, Nevada, USA - AUG 28, 2014
Cascade sells themselves short with their non-sour stuff. It’s usually better than they think. This is one of my least favorite of their beers, and it’s still pretty dang nice. Maybe too much spice for me...covers the malty goodness and the body just a touch, but a good winter warmer maxwelldeux (4374) - Snohomish, Washington, USA - MAR 8, 2014
Draught. Pours an amber color with a moderate head on it. Nose is definitely malt forward, with some caramel and bread notes in there. Taste is fairly dry, though you can get the nice malt flavors coming through. Not a bad drink at all. andrewje41 (4156) - Kenmore, Washington, USA - MAR 7, 2014
