16 oz can. Aroma: malty and piney, with hints of caramel and biscuit. Taste/Palate: thick; starts sweet and creamy, and finishes crisp (almost sharp), with a long bitterness. julesjis (256) - Oregon, USA - NOV 9, 2014
Poured from a can. Appearance is a darker, syrupy red color. Aroma indicates a malty and not overly spiced beer. Flavor has some sweetness to it, but not sickly sweet like many Winter Ales. Overall it is just a nice, malty, thick but easy drinking beer. maxwelldeux (4374) - Snohomish, Washington, USA - OCT 27, 2014
Can. Pours a slightly hazy brown color with a moderate light tan head on there. Nose has some earthy grass elements to it with a bit of bread to it, and seems remarkably fresh. Taste is light and fresh, with a slight bitterness to it. Really nice and easy. I like it. Sarlacc83 (2287) - Portland, Oregon, USA - OCT 25, 2014
A: Semi - clear caramel with an off-white head.
N: Pineapple, caramel, toffee, grapefruit, leaves, earth, pine, bubble gum. Buttered toast.
T: Bitter and sweet.
M: Medium body with a soft carbonation and some resins.
O: A big sweet balanced beer. Flavorful and expressively hopped. Great winter warmer. Lizardking3 (192) - Springfield, Oregon, USA - OCT 23, 2014
Pours a very nice caramel brown with burnt white head. Very floral and citrusy aroma. Taste is immediately floral and citrusy, and the velvety mouth feel is fantastic. Very nice

Mouthfeel is great with a medium body and crisp carbonation. Taste is sweet initially followed by a great hop bitterness.

"This beer achieves a nice balance between dark malts, lighter malts, and spicy and citrus hops, but was still pretty bland, and therefore ultimately forgettable. Maybe I’m the anomoly...95 on RB when had/97 now." hopdog (12953) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 4, 2014
Can. Love the art work! Poured an amber color with a small sized off white head. Toasted grains, floral, citrus, and a lighter caramel. BooRadleyRed (10) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 24, 2014
Bomber. Such a nice drinking beer for the winter. Love the hop forward taste and interesting aroma. The higher carb scores points with me as well.
