Copper with a lasting off-white head. Aroma of brown sugar with a touch of cinnamon and other spices. Sweet and malty flavour with mild spices. BeerandBlues2 (13376) - Escondido, California, USA - MAY 17, 2004
Dark brown to amber in color with a foamy tan head. Malty and caramel aroma. Bitter malt flavor; also, a bit toasty and roasted. Medium body and a bit dry at the end. Dogbrick (13036) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - MAR 13, 2002
I really wish this one was available year round, as it is Sammy’s best offering, edging out the Winter Lager. I really had trouble placing the aroma, it was kind of like toasted wheat bread with a hint of orange. The color was rich and so was the taste. Refreshingly complex. bu11zeye (13029) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - MAY 8, 2009
(12oz bottle) Pours an amber body with a small beige head. Aroma of caramel, cinnamon, chocolate, nutmeg, and other spices. Flavor of caramel, toffee, nuts, and cinnamon. crossovert (12943) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 14, 2011
12 oz bottle.
It pours a reddish brown with a foamy off white head.
It smells like caramel.
The flavor is pretty tame. It has some caramel malt, some roastiness, and some spices, but it also has a certain wateriness and some metallic flavor.
It certainly isn’t as good as their winter lager, but that isn’t saying too much.

Bottle, bought @ Kvickly, Esbjerg.hopdog (12584) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 2, 2005
Pours a wonderful, clear red chestnut with a wonderful, big, creamy, off-white head. Looks amazing. Sweet malty aroma, caramel, light plums, good pepper and cinnamon notes. Medium carbonation, fine dry and light creamy mouthfeel. Flavour is dryish, some good spiciness, light dark chocolate, cocoa, cinnamon, light coriander. A hint of roasted malts. Fine and very easily drinkable.

12oz bottle-pours a tan head and dark brown color. Aroma is dark malt-fruit. Taste is dark malt-fruit, spices. OK carbonation. Sammy (12212) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 20, 2006
A lager with initially fizzy carbonation that fades as it warms to just significant carbonation. Clearly orange and cinammon, a spot of ginger for spice, and caramel. Weak finish. Medium mouthfeel. Rather a bold herbal tea. Nice chestnut amber colour.
