Pours a slightly brown golden with a thin white head. Aroma is cinnamon, nutmeg, and clove. Flavor is sweet, clove, cinnamon, and a bit of bitterness toward the finish. nuplastikk (6452) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 8, 2010
12oz bottle. Hazy orange-amber color, nice frothy head. Big cinnamon-clove aroma. Pretty interesting in that it blends the think spiciness with a lighter, sessionable malt body. Not at all unlike a pumpkin beer, this is unapologetic in it’s overboard spicing. I can appreciate a unique winter beer, and this is certainly unique. Captures an almost creamy Belgian Golden Ale combined with the spicy characteristics of an American Pumpkin Ale. OK. Finhead (1814) - OFallon, Illinois, USA - MAR 7, 2010
A cloudy reddish-orange pour with a small white head. The aroma is spicy with ginger, clove, and banana. The taste is mixture of light sweet and sour with dry, funky aftertaste. adavis234 (289) - Charleston, South Carolina, USA - FEB 13, 2010
12 oz. bottle. Pours an orange gold color with a thin white head. Cinnamon spice aroma is pleasing but not too heavy. Flavor is a bit thin and watery, with a little bit of the cinnamon and spice up front and a more citrusy finish. An ok beer but a bit light on flavor. beernovice39 (3269) - Idaho, USA - FEB 5, 2010
Well what we have here is more liquid potpouri. Way to much spice and cinnamon. I will pass on these next year, yuck.

Bottle from Hop City. Oh boy. This is seriously spiced and candy-liked. Loads of cinnamon assault my nose with hard candies. You know all those "pumpkin" ales I hate because they taste like cinnamon candies? This is pretty much like that. I guess someone has found a way to keep the ridiculous cinnamon bombs past the fall and into the winter. The flavor is laughable. This is like liquid Fireballs. A few sips into it I think I realize some wimpy hop presence. bah. scraff (2125) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - JAN 15, 2010
12 oz – The Wine Source. Clear gold, creamy white head. Soft toasted cinnamon-clove aromas warm to lighter earthed-nutmeg blend. Delicate spice flavors rest on a soft foundation of nutty earth and malt. Light bodied, fluffy carbonation, dry spiced finish. Decent, but far from special… Cybercat (6139) - Georgia, USA - DEC 22, 2009
Comes out of the tap a clear, darkish amber with an average head. Aroma is strong and spicy as well as somewhat malty; spice is mainly cinnamon and cloves. Flavor is fairly strong and malty, and the spicy component is mainly cloves and cinnamon. There is also just a hint of hops. Texture is fairly smooth and tingly, and nips at the tongue.

Bottle from State Line. Pours hazy deep copper with off-whute head. Nose is caramel malt, nutmeg, cinnamon, cardamom. Tastes pumpkin spicy, with malt and more late nutmeg notes. Decent overall. scrizzz (2223) - Bothell, Washington, USA - JUN 19, 2009
Piney, sprucey, and friggin’ sweet cinnamon aroma! I can picture Burl Ives as a snowman. Clear honey gold. Astringent, only a bit of honey remains, mostly broken. The spices are chaotic and lost. Probably not supposed to be consumed in June.
