copper with a small off white head. mild herbal hop and spice aroma. thin bodied with a mild hop bitterness, with hints of nutmeg and some fruitiness. OK but nothing special.

This is pretty easy drinking. Nothing at all exciting, but some nice hop flavor peeping from under the dark malt flavors. Not bad, not great.

Pours dark amber with a strong tan head. Strong pine aroma. Flavor is a little sweet with a heavy grass finish. Soapy aftertaste almost ruins the flavor. Not as thick or strong as most winter brews.

This beer didn't really impress me that much. It tasted very malty and dry, but it was not horrible. It was hard to drink more than a few of these. OK.

Smells like apples. Shallow off-white head with a lot of lace. Strong carbonation keeps the head up for a long time. Caremellt-brown color, dry texture. The killer is the sour-alkaline finish that puts the nail in the coffin: not that great a beer.

Pours a dark red with a light tan head, similar to many of the winter brews out right now. Roasty sweet caramel malt aroma, some nice fruity hops backing it up. Taste was a bit of a let down, very watery and bland. Very lightly malted with a mild fruity hop finish. Just a boring winter brew.

Nice malty sweet spice nose, small thin head, almost non existent, nicely carbonated robust full bodied taste, nicely balanced, slightly dry very refreshing, nice bitterness.

piscator34 (2646) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - DEC 16, 2004
Medium brown/red in colour. Lots of leafy hop smells which remind me of raking leaves in the fall. The flavors are of dry roasted malts, pine, and a bit of brown sugar. Light and dry finish. Nothing special, but drinkable nonetheless.

On Tap @ MacGreggors in Henrietta. Of course they serve everything in their dimpled mugs, so there is very little in the way of presentation. The color was dark, but I can’t make a call as to whether it was black or it was just too dark in the bar for me to tell. There wasn’t a lot of flavor to this beer. It was mild at only 5.5 percent, I was would expect more from a winter beer. The flavors were slight roast and spice with a tiny tinge of bitterness at the very end, but an incredibly short finish. Overall, it wasn’t offensive, but I wanted a bit more alcohol strength and a bit more flavor.
