12oz bottle from holiday pack from Food Lion in Wilson. Dark orange/reddish hue with almost fully diminishing light khaki head. No lacing. Aromas of citrus hop and dark malt. Dark malt and light spice taste up front with more of an orange citrus finish. Slick mouth feel. ozzy70 (1334) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - JAN 7, 2016
12 oz. bottle. Pours dark copper/ruby. Thin tan head. Aroma was roasted malts and light spices. Taste is malty, peppery and sweet. Hopmaestro (1823) - Örebro, SWEDEN - DEC 28, 2015
Aroma is malty with toffee and sweet bread. Taste is really sweet but with some stingy light spice. A sensation of dark plums? Drinkable and pretty nice overall. tysonf7 (28) - - DEC 27, 2015
12 oz bottle. Pours a nice off white/cream head. Nice hazy Amber color with descent carbonation. The aroma is not very appealing, the beer is light and lager like but has an after taste that is not very appealing but grows on you. The ginger stands out in the finish. The orange peel seems absent while the cinnamon is very faint. BierMeHoos (650) - Maryland, USA - DEC 26, 2015
Poured from a 12oz winter classic variety pack, thanks Garrett. Appearance is amber and decent head, dissipates quickly. Aroma is weak but light malts and ginger. Taste is lightly sweet and some notes of orange and cinnamon. Palate is medium carbonation. Overall decent for the style, good for a variety pack.

Bottle. Light, hoppy and drinkable. Some strange vegtable notes. OK but not that interesting. LLaurin (550) - Motala, SWEDEN - DEC 24, 2015
This is a light amber lager with some spice in taste and palate. Some hops aräe present but doesn’t leave a lasting impression. Senap (750) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - DEC 24, 2015
Nja, jag tänker lite på en mer utvecklad falcon bayersk. Rätt tunn men rödbrun - ett mesigare val till jul. p0rkch0p (137) - Missouri, USA - DEC 23, 2015
Dark, crisp, and dry. Nice little spice at the end. Was suprisingly mild and easy drinking. Great changeup to have in the lineup. Hope sam adams other selections in the winter sampler are just as good.

On bottle from Systembolaget Strømstad.
Amber color, good foam. Medium/low aroma intensity; malty, dried fruits, christmas spices- some fruitiness. Medium body & complexity. A little on the sweet side. Pretty good beer
