Tap. Amber with small head. Medium body with quite a bit of ginger. Theres some other spice there but its buried by the ginger.

Drake (13504) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 26, 2014
Bomber from Bruisin Ales. Pours a hazy red color with a thin frothy tan head. Decent head retention. Aroma of toasted malts, ginger, honey. The taste is toasted malts, cherries, honey, citrus, ginger. Thin-medium bodied, slightly warming in feel, not in a boozy way. Maybe not the best beer, but Im really liking it.

Leighton (20814) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 6, 2014
Draft at the brewery taproom. Pours clear, rich gold with a fine, creamy head. Wintery spices on the snout, fine toasted sugars, bread, citrus. Light to medium sweet flavor, plenty of holiday spices, creamy caramel, faint pine. Medium bodied with fine carbonation. Sweet finish with lingering spices and bready malts. A nice wintery, spiced beer.

On tap @ Olde Hickory. Pours a clear copper appearance with a thin tan head. Mint, ginger, citrus / orange, and spices in the nose. Carbonation a bit thin. Ginger ale flavor. Orange peel and maybe some herbal / spruce / mint notes as well. Moderately sweet. Low bitterness. OK.

AdamT (268) - North Carolina, USA - JAN 29, 2014
22oz bottle from Brewmasters in Wilson. Orange-brown hue, murky clarity with mostly diminishing head. No lacing. You can smell the spice, orange & cinammon. As it warms you get a hint of honey aroma. Strong spice on the initial taste with a long spice finish. Not much different then some pumpkin brews that I have tried, I liked this and will look for it next year.

Westmeister (2129) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - DEC 22, 2013
Growler Pour. Pours amber with weaker head. Smell is cinnamon, clove, ginger and a hint of citrus. Taste is on the weaker side of spicing which isnt necessarily a bad thing. However, the palate is quite thin so the sweet finish is rather quick and the spice in the end is a bit underwhelming. Honey is noticeable though.

Decent holiday ale, but a bit weak for my tastes. Good mix of spices, none overpowering like some holiday ales. I think if you raised the gravity closer to 8-9% with the same spice mix youd have a real winner.

magsinva (1223) - Virginia, USA - DEC 30, 2012
Bottle from App vintner - pours clear amber with a tan head. Aroma is light, herby, cinnamon, ginger, and alcohol. Taste is watery bittersweet. Palate is thin and mildly astringent. Overall, a bit wimpy for a winter warmer.
