Bottle from total wine sterling. Pours apricot with a thin white head. Slight note of honey on the nose. Thin mouthfeel. Slight hint of hop dryness on the finish. Disappointed. I was expecting something bigger and more flavorful. arone12 (932) - Maryland, USA - APR 4, 2012
Mmmm have had this beer for a while. Tried it tonight. Liked it. Drank it while attempting to install a microwave/take down a oven hood. Ended up shocking myself. Guess you gotta turn the power off. Good times. PorterPounder (8284) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - MAR 31, 2012
Savannah, Ga. - Habersham Beverage Warehouse - 12 oz bottle. Slightly murky dark golden pour - fluffy white head that leave plenty of lacing. Aroma is reminiscent of a ginger bread cookie. Flavor has some horehound candy notes, and some gingerbread. Mouthfeel has a nice creaminess to it. BVery (11361) - Plymouth, Minnesota, USA - MAR 26, 2012
Bottle. Orange pour with a small soapy white head. Nose is cinnamon, clove, and tea. Medium palate. Taste is graham cracker, holiday spices, and a bit of vegetal character. jmohno (1661) - Iowa, USA - MAR 15, 2012
Poured into a stone pint glass golden orange,obvious bottle condition with yeast floaties,moderatemedium carbonation. thin head but frothy ring.
Weak aroma of mild hop possibly but probably spice.Slight breadyness/malt.
Taste is a typical pale clean crisp light carmel,sweetness,mild breadyness,spice is an obvious flavor and fairly major for taste with ginger and clove it seems slight cinnomon maybe not.Yeah some peppery ginger.Kind of a roasty finish with the bittering maybe just a mild harshness from the spices thoughFinishes mildly bitter but with spices more.Not bad for a spiced ale,not one of my favorates from them.

Aroma is citrus, cracker-like malts, and either spice or vegetables. The flavor is heavy on the spice and citrus, with vegetables creeping in. This, unfortunately, is another holiday ale that has a vegetable flavor in it; this one wasn’t as bad as others but it still detracted from the flavor and score. jeremytoni (3083) - Swedesboro, New Jersey, USA - JAN 28, 2012
From a bottle poured an amber color with a good amount of head. Light spiy malty flavor with a quick finish. beachbum25 (1092) - Powellville, Maryland, USA - JAN 21, 2012
On tap @ Lures, Crownsville Md-Cloudy amber pour w/an off white head. Spiced aroma. Some spice, some roasted malt, a little sweet, nothing special, but a solid, easy drinking winter warmer. Finish was a little thin, I wouldn’t seek this out as there are a lot better winter brews out there, but it’s drinkable. Tmoney99 (14963) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JAN 14, 2012
Bottle. Poured cloudy dark amber color with an average off-white frothy head that was mostly lasting with good lacing. Solid spice and sweet malt aroma. Moderate body with a smooth texture and lively carbonation and small particles. Medium spicy sweet flavor with a medium sweet finish of moderate duration. Solid seasonal beer.

Draft. Pours orange with a white head. The aroma has spices and sweet malts. The flavor has well balanced festive spices, sweet malts, and a light bitterness. Pretty good.
