Bottle. Poured a dirty straw color, with a two finger, creamy white head. Very nutty aroma. Body is light and finishes thin, almost smooth, but not quite. Probably the best of the gimmicky Ridgecrest holiday beers, it gets my vote, anyway.
Bottle from Booths, Ripon. Amber coloured with a thin white head. It has a sweet dried fruit and burnt toffee flavour followed by almond and vanilla on the sweet, warming finish. Not bad. sinfull (1804) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - JAN 7, 2017
Copper color. Thin , off-white head . Caramel malt and nuts in aroma. Not too much is going on in sweet, malty taste . Light body, kind of watery ... Expected more.

1 pint 9 ounce bottle. Not much of an aroma. Deep copper in copper. On the the side not full bodied but good. Taste like candy sugar in the batch Slight nut taste. Smooth on palate and a very drinkable beer. A little vanilla in in this too! slowrunner77 (12895) - Reno, Nevada, USA - DEC 24, 2016
Chestnut colored from the tap. Sweet aroma and flavor of caramel and slightly artificial tasting and smelling nuts. May be the first Ridgeway that wasn’t from a bottle, and it was missing the dull dusty character of their other beers...which was nice...but it was watery, very boring and overly sweet.

From tap at Taphouse. Light brown colour with a small off-white head. Aroma and flavour of malt, nuts, caramel, spice and a mild bitterness.
