Orange color with a white head. Aroma is citrus and hops. Taste is citrus and toffee sweetness. Heavy spice and different from last year’s recipe chris__hartley (445) - Ontario, CANADA - NOV 18, 2016
It pours copper with ruby highlights; the head is off-white and foamy. The aroma has notes of: raisins, clove, toast, and molasses. The taste is lightly sweet, that finishes lightly bitter. The palate has a medium-light body, with light carbonation; the finish is short. Overall, it was cheap - that is all. Hanoi (951) - Greater Manchester, ENGLAND - NOV 16, 2016
Bottle. Nose is malty, fruity, hint of spice very appealing. Taste is sweet malts, fruit, red berry, caramel, light hops in the short finish. Very faint ash, in the body with a touch of spice. It’s a decent beer but not one I’d rush to get again. altonbrownd (5897) - Chevy Chase, Maryland, USA - NOV 13, 2016

Pour is a dark blonde almost amber in coloring. Smell is burnt caramel, butter, bread and sweet chocolate. Taste follows, medium coffee and sweet caramel. nice long brown ale after taste alomtnez (380) - SPAIN - AUG 12, 2016
Clear light brown colour.
Sweet malty and slightly spicy aroma.
Net and simple acid and bitter taste. Slightly tart acid finish. chinchill (4993) - South Carolina, USA - JUN 29, 2016
From 2012 notes.
Amber with a bone colored head.
Lightly spiced malt. Vague spicing. Similar flavor. At least this is not an over-spiced winter seasonal.
A bit disappointing given the typical quality of this famous brewery. Certainly not bad or flawed, but not bold, rich or complex. L_Lovecraft (609) - - MAY 6, 2016
Honey, hoppy, toffee, amber with a creamy white head, medium body, law carbonation, a bit watery, honey, toffee, grass, quietly bitter...not so warming but for me it’s good. jrodooo5 (1672) - DOVER, Delaware, USA - APR 12, 2016
Pretty rustic orange pour w/ a white head & nice lacing. The aroma is quite bland w/ some somewhat sweet malts coming through. The taste is clean & crisp but almost too much. There’s nothing interesting going on here but it is well balanced & easy to drink. Overall, simply boring.
