KAggie97 (3529) - Ugly, Hot, and Humid Spring, Texas, USA - DEC 15, 2007
Bottle. Pours a nice, deep brown with a great head (hehe). Aroma of earthy vegetables and stale hops that do nothing for me. Ugh! I sipped this crap and was greeted with garbage-disposal vegetables and mutant (yes, mutant) malt. Yuck. Watery mouthfeel. I assume the reindeer in question are revolting against being implicated in this crappy beverage.

sloth (2844) - Ceciltucky, Co., Maryland, USA - DEC 11, 2007
Small offwhite head that settles out quickly and ends up thin and wispy, lacing is spotty. Clear amber, copper hued brew. Light nose of fruit, peach and a bit of grainy malts. Body is med/light with a pleasent carbonation, a touch oily. Dry malt flavors, light woodiness, caramel, citrus notes and a gentle breadiness. Dry, lightly fruity finish. A neat little quaffer.

This English Strong Ale pours a medium orange gold color. Medium sized white foamy head. Aroma is caramel, some sweetness with a touch of hops. Medium bodied English Strong Ale. The malts are caramel and semi-sweet. The hops are earthy and floral. Nice balance. Lots of caramel and sweet malt flavors. The citrusy aspect comes out after it warms a bit. Decent beer, a nice session ale. Mouthfeel is full. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly sweet.
