Favorite go to lighter winter beer every season. Perfect balance of leafy hops and flavor!

Great beer. Again, on tap at the brewery. Much better there than out of a bottle. Nice flavor, similar to the brown ale with a more bitter, hoppy, floral taste.

A real nice hearty, warm flavored beer that is a nice winter beer without the "hot" high alcohol flavor of most heavy Xmas beers, or the overly spiced versoin of other Xmas beers.

Embarrassment of a beer. This is not an ale. Not even close. No head. Flat. Extremely malty. No carbonation. Terrible aftertaste. Zero flavor nor character. It’s like the cousin of Old English but for a lot more. I’m yet to find a St. Arnold that is adequate, if not for Karbach I wouldn’t have wasted my time. I don’t say this often but avoid this beer! Waste of money and time that I will never get back!!!

Pour sunset orange with almost no lacing. Aroma is dried fruit with slight cloves. Taste is complex malts and slight alcohol. Very nice.

taalhiker (190) - Dayton, Ohio, USA - DEC 28, 2008
Poured from bottle. Thanks to JeffE for this brewed. Copper orange with virtually no head. Sweet nose of toffee and malt. Nice finish of fresh berries and brown sugar.

3.7
johno (185) - Galveston, Texas, USA - NOV 14, 2006
Pours a rich red/brown, carbonated, fluffy tan head; great looking in the glass. Aroma of medium strength, some grassy hops as well as fruity malt. An initial bitterness gives way to sweet, a slightly viscous mouthfeel and warm finish, hops again with some interesting maltiness there, a touch of caramel. Lasts. Quite well done.

Phatdog1 (179) - Brentwood, New Hampshire, USA - MAR 16, 2013
12 oz bottle courtesy of AirForceHops. Nice orange pour with lots of tiny bubbles rising to the top. Biscuity malt nose with lots of sweet fruit. Taste is all sweet malt up front, spice & hop bite linger nicely to a dry, slightly bitter finish. Hard to belive this is 7%. Very drinkable!

aenimopiate (176) - The United States of Texas, Texas, USA - DEC 14, 2007
Smells like apple juice(very mouthwatering), has a beautiful dark coppery color, and tastes of dark fruits and spices. Overall a pretty yummy seasonal beer from the people down in Houston.

3.3
Hiero (163) - Dallas, Texas, USA - DEC 13, 2013
Taste is good, with a medium body and pleasant bitterness. There is no lingering aftertaste and it is very smooth. The taste and palate are simple though and lack a little depth. Overall a good beer.
