DandyWolfFloyd (1202) - Jim Thorpe, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 8, 2015
Aroma - has some alcohol and spice - more muted than I would have suspected. Appearance - body is honey amber colored. The head starts at 1 1/2 and slightly off-white, the head fades to a small bit of foam. Taste - moderately sweet, with a little Christmas associated spice - allspice, nutmeg, coriander, cinnamon. There is a bit of a Grand Marnier orange and some bits of honeyed malt. Palate - body is medium, texture somewhat oil and slick, carbonation is average almost soft. The finish has a spicy bit of bitterness and a twinge of alcohol.

Cor alaranjada, brilhante. Espuma boa e de média persistência. Aroma floral e cítrico. No paladar semente de coentro, casca de laranja e condimentos. Bem equilibrada. Retrogosto de amargor leve e alcoólico. Excelente.

BeerRenter76 (903) - Texas, USA - JUL 22, 2015
Pours a clear golden orange with a foamy head that fades to nothing. Small dots of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, grain, honey, and slight spice aromas. Taste is much the same with honey and spice flavors on the finish, not getting the vanilla anywhere. Overall, this is an ok beer, not much going on.

330ml bottle at Beer Station, Xiamen as Commemorative Ale labelled as 8.0%. Pours orange amber with a thin white head. Aroma of spice nutmeg clove and orange peel. Full bodied mouthfeel. Sweet finish. Not always a fan of these type of spiced beers but this is great.

Underdogs88 (325) - New Jersey, USA - APR 11, 2015
Malt dominates the aroma with hints of vanilla. Appearance is a cloudy Amber with a small off white head. Flavor is oxidized and muddled. Malt flavor dominates and the spices are mostly hidden. Notes of toast and caramel are present with a hint of coriander. Mouthfeel is medium with medium carbonation. Overall, it's oxidized which dramatically affected the flavor of the beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
