Amber with a nice head. Aroma brings vanilla and some fruit, was it melon? Very smooth and pleasant to drink. Oakes (17274) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 2, 2003

The caramel malt is what you smell, then taste. Almost no hops presence. Lubiere (13796) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 14, 2003
Pours a thin head. Nice orange amber ale with a butterscotch nose and liqueur (ameretto is right kindestcut). Nice warmth of alcool, spices, faint bitterness, but nice body. Enjoyable. crossovert (12666) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 8, 2014
Malty aroma, hint of spice, slight slat. Flat, slight spice, some caramel and bread. This is pretty bad. slowrunner77 (11917) - Reno, Nevada, USA - OCT 21, 2014
it’s pretty heavily spiced...and not well. I love North Coast, but after giving this beer a second, third chance, etc, I won’t drink it again. Easily their weakest offering ever."
