3.5
jebert (500) - Watertown, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 18, 2013
Pours a nice looking amber with a medium sized tan head. Nose is spices with a whiff of hops. Fairly creamy on the palate, the taste is malty with some caramel and ginger notes. Slight hop flavor on the finish, still rather sweet though. A good winter warmer.

Aroma is grainy malts and hints of dark fruit and Belgian funk. The flavor is malts, bubblegum, dark fruit and a mildly spicy/tart finish.

Here it goes had this 2 months apart and in those 2 months it was almost a totally different beer strange... December it was awesome sweet sour almost like a jolly rancher one of the best and strangest beers i ever had. Wild... 2 months later had another and it had mellowed quite a bit still good but darker in color and a lot of the original flavors were gone leaving a kind of dark winter ale in its place nice job Schells!!!

portableparty (2382) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - OCT 28, 2012
12 oz. bottle. Pours dark copper with a quick tight soapy khaki head that fades and leaves a thin foamy collar and film. Aroma is sweet malt and some fruit and spice. Taste is malty and subtle spice with a fruitiness that is a bit of plum and apple and yeast is present. Palate is medium and a little medicinal as well as musty and finishes dry.

islay (2996) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - NOV 30, 2012
12 oz. bottle, consumed on 11-25-12. Juicy, tangy, mineral-y, strong, refreshing, enjoyable aroma features bubblegum, caramel, lemon, peach, raspberry, and whipped cream / cool whip scents. Pours an effervescent, clear brass / light amber color. Large amount of fluffy, uneven, peach / “skin”-colored head. Good, extensive lacing. Nearly worthy of a 4 in appearance. Sweet, sugary, milky, juicy, mineral-y taste features apricot, caramel, and honey elements. Excessively sweet. Mineral-y aftertaste. Light to medium body. Easy to drink. Good enough overall. 8/3/6/3/13=>3.3

Skyview (6099) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - JAN 19, 2013
Picked up a single 12-oz bottle at Heritage Liquors in Maplewood, Minnesota. Pours a clear copper amber colored brew with an average sized off-white head that dissipates to a film top and white ring with some spotty lacing. Aroma of light banana yeast, multi-grain malt, some white bread dough and a touch of holiday potpourri. Taste is medium bodied, with flavors of Belgian-like yeast, hint of molasses, light raisin, citrus/floral hops with a hint of nutmeg. Finish is mildly spicy with lingering yeast aftertaste.

Pours amber with a medium sized head. Aroma is quite christmasy with hints of yeast, malts, a bit of banana and a whole lot of Christmas spice. The taste follows nicely with very sweet tones that are complimented by spice on the finish. Overall a great beer for a blistery day of football
