16 fl oz ceramic flip-top bottles. Heres- the deal two diff. locations... one served flip-top sealed, while the other had the flip-top yet was sealed w/ a cap, nice! Both had decent carbonation but the cap sealed was more like what I expected. Bubbly light, golden ale. Nose of pepper and spice. Taste is also spicy w/ a very slight alcohol burn. Yeasty towards the end. I really enjoyed this both time, the first was at Gene Haufbrews? in Chalreston at $9 and the other (cap sealed) Winter Solsice Saucer ceramic bottle design was bought at the Flying Saucer here in Columbia for a bullshit $15. Interesting variations in bottles though. argo0 (14127) - Washington DC, USA - FEB 6, 2006
(16oz ceramic bottle) Completely flat from the bottle, once again the seal of bottle cap to ceramic was inadequate from St. Sebastiaan. Particulate-hazy amber body. Aroma is very sweet, honey, flowery, peach. Taste is moderately sweet, maple, some herb, cookie dough, flowery, alcohol, light cantalope, grape. Watery, flat, medium-full body. I would be willing to re-rate with an intact bottle, but this rating will be factored in -- a bottling defect like this is on the head of the brewer.

Clay bottle. Pours a honey golden color with no real head. Smells of fruity aroma, red grape and maybe a bit of citrus and sweet malt. Taste mirrors the aroma but the beer has a weak finish. It’s creamy but almost watery and a bit thin. Very lightly carbonated. Nice bottle but the beer is weak. Might be an outdated bottle. Fightfire4beer (132) - Virginia, USA - JAN 8, 2006
hazy gold color with a small head. At first it gives a yeasty aroma with a hint of citrus; however, after a few seconds sour apple would be an accurate description in my mind. sweet taste. Alcohol was there but not overpowering. Lou18 (1353) - West Paterson, New Jersey, USA - JAN 8, 2006
Bottle poured a mixed orange red color with big fizzy head. Nose was yeast. The bottle was nicer then the brew.

Deep, dull yellow with a frothy white head. Yeasty, floral, lightly sweet aroma with some toasted cookie. The flavor pretty well mirrors the aroma, but it also has a buttery British ale quality. Clean and mildly tart. Nice beer but I don’t really need to pay the price for the pretty bottle. RichardGretton (4861) - Leicestershire, ENGLAND - JAN 2, 2006
Bottle. Two tier orange appearance with a very strong head. The aroma is fruity, gently spiced and citric. The flavour is strong mulled fruit and warming. Overall a nice beer but quite overpowering at times. sammy3D (141) - Lawrenceville, Georgia, USA - DEC 30, 2005
Pours an almost clear gold with a minimal head. Aroma is sour apple with a hint of cherry and bitter malt. Flavor is malty sweet with a slight butterscotch (diacetyl?) note and a hint of bitter. This bottle was almost completely flat and fizzless. Mouthfeel was weak almost lifeless. Maybe another bottle with more carbonation would be better?

Bottled. Golden coloring (duh) with a very nice hop note. Nice finish. Good brew. peter (445) - Normal, Illinois, USA - DEC 23, 2005
Rebranded holiday growler. Truely goldenbody with beer goggle haze. Aroma was a clone of flavour, both with lovely sweet citrus and mild yeast. Good solid head that follows most of the way down.
