A very good beer. It has a smooth spicy flaver that warms you up after a hard day skiing. GoldenSpunky (120) - Rochester, New York, USA - JAN 4, 2005
Beer starts off well with a pleasant aroma of robust coffee and hops and a dark amber hue. However when I took the first sip I definitely got a bitter beer face. This beer is loaded with hops but the bitterness overwhelmes with winter barley flavor that could have been a saving grace. This beer would only be satisfying only someone with dulled taste buds from years of smoking cigars. Coyler (112) - Dublin, IRELAND - JAN 17, 2013
Don’t know if its my cold, but im not getting a whole lot of an aroma of this, slight hop aroma. Nice appearance though, nice foamy head, lovely red amber colour.
Much lighter in taste than i expected, feels very light around the mouth, bready, biscuity flavours. rodneykm (111) - Westminster, South Carolina, USA - JAN 25, 2008
Nice clean tasting winter lager with a hoppy taste at the begining that changes to a smooth taste at the end. HoppyGuy (111) - Washington, USA - OCT 16, 2008
Bottle. Pours a clear mahogany brown color with a half-inch tan head. Aroma of malt and earth, like a meadow. Nice malty flavor, with a hint of roasted malts and and caramel. The beer has a nice hops balance. I’d like to pair this brew with a good lamb stew or maybe shepherd’s pie.

Was a little bitter for my taste. Don't know what the alcohol % is, but it must be high. I had 3 or 4 pints of this at the sports bar and it hit me pretty hard. hoorayforbeer (105) - Denton, Texas, USA - NOV 17, 2002
Pours medium reddish-brown with a beige head. Spicy with some malt and caramel sweetness with a nice slightly toasted barley finish, but suffers from the typical redhook thin body. And I agree, it has a weird metallic feel to it that really detracts from an otherwise okay brew. archstanton (105) - mukilteo, Washington, USA - OCT 20, 2003
UPDATED: NOV 11, 2005 very dark brown/almond colored with a sharp bitter bite at first then after a few sips this hop infested brew tastes great..very good.. UriahHeep (105) - Georgia, USA - OCT 7, 2009
Caramel appearance. Minimal head. Spicy pine hop aroma. Slight roastiness. Medium body featuring orange zest, tasty malt, and that subtle pine hop note. A crisp and refreshing beer. Amazingly I found a gas station cooler that sells bottles for 99 cents. GTCruiser01 (105) - California, USA - MAR 16, 2012
Clear brown color with a thick head light lacing. The aroma is mostly of malt with a slight touch of hops. The taste is spicy and hoppy with a nice malt background. The mouthfeel is full.
