Copper color. Fruity, a bit of spice. Bitter finish.

baobubba (454) - Starkville, Mississippi, USA - NOV 29, 2002
Copper color, little head. Malty/fruity aroma - dried apples, pears, and caramel. Sweet flavor, slight bitter finish, no aftertaste. An unoffensive, uncomplicated winter ale. Pretty much gutless.

PBOYNY (316) - Westchester, New York, USA - NOV 27, 2002
decent enough ale, somewhat boring, but about as good as it gets from these sag-asses

A much better winter than others including Sam Adams with a nice slight spiciness.

"Robust"? Maybe. Not too bad, classic english ale flavor, but nothing like the better examples.

drismyhero (815) - Tacoma, Washington, USA - NOV 24, 2002
Very sour kind of bitter, unpleasant actually. I drank this while watching UW upset No.3 WSU, and being from Pullman maybe this was Seattles way of saying "dont drink our goddamn beer if you our rooting for the other team." Well, just like the Huskies, beer too can have a bad season.

Crit (3895) - Surrey, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 24, 2002
Contrary to popular belief this is not the same every year. This wasnt one of the better ones, lacking in flavor

ultraspank (867) - Alverca, Lisboa, PORTUGAL - NOV 23, 2002
Had a few of these in a bottle after watching Ohio State spank Michigan and clinch a spot in the Fiesta Bowl. GO BUCKS!! Anyway, I digress. Subtle nose of caramel, flowers, and a hint of citrus. Pours a clear ruddy brown/orange. The ultra creamy and exceptionally tight off-white head is mostly lasting with good lacing. The flavor starts sweet with a warm and spicy middle that is slightly acidic. The finish is on the sweet side. The medium creamy lively palate finishes clean and slightly dry. Not bad.
