Portland Brewing Company, Inc.--Icicle Creek Winter Ale--1998 12 oz. Bottle. 6.50% ABV. (3.0 / 5.0) Pours thick with pretty clear red color. Semi spicy malt with hints of hop aroma. Light body for a Winter, but well blended and flavorful. Sampled 11/3/1998. RSRIZZO (2032) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - NOV 26, 2007
Had this beer on 2/22/1999. Color is a deep amber with good carbonation and a nice head. Aroma is faint, but a light malt scent can be detected. Taste is refreshing and clean. It starts with a medium body that goes down crisp with a light malt flavor. The finish is a nice balance of malt and hop flavor with a nice bitterness. Overall it works well as a winter brew or an everyday Amber Ale. kp (10880) - Woodstock, Georgia, USA - SEP 1, 2007

If you were to eat nothing but Taco Bell for a week, not shower, or change clothes, work out every day for that week, and drain the sweat from your underwear into a bottle. You would have made a bottle of Portland Icicle Creek Winter Ale. Crit (4057) - Surrey, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 5, 2002

Dark amber color. Slightly spicy, floral nose. Good hop character with a slightly bitter finish. joet (2662) - Wilsonville, Oregon, USA - NOV 3, 2001
Fruity, holiday spice, coffee, slightly sour. Ok, this is a failed experiment -- the daring all have them. I've got to stop here. Avoid this like a store-bought fruitcake.
