This is a very smooth novice friendly ale. It goes down easy and definitely warms you up. At four plus dollars per bottle in Arkansas, it is worth trying. Especially for Halloween. Not as satisfying as Sam Smith Winter Welcome, but for a few more weeks it will do.

Hangover (1129) - oxford, Georgia, USA - OCT 31, 2006
Had this one for halloween... oooh scary bottle lol! Slightly dark yet opaque red pour with a moderately thick and lasting tan head. Sweet malt and caramel aroma with a bit of chocolate. Medium bodied with some creaminess. Hops slightly bittering leading to a malty middle. Finish is bitter but watered down. Not bad.

Jwasciuk (198) - Lowell, Michigan, USA - OCT 26, 2006
pours clear red with a frothy brown head (mostly diminishing) Aroma is heavily malty toasted, lightly hoppy floral aroma, sweet fruity yeast cherries and apple. Flavor is malty ans kind of sweet finsih is moderatly sweet and lightly bitter. Medium bodied watery and oily, softly carbonated.

DruncanVeasey (8217) - NUNEATON, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - OCT 25, 2006
Cherry red pour with an off-white head. Sweetly roasty caramel nose. Lots of roasted malt and maybe a dash of orange fruitiness. Nicely balanced hoppily bitter finish,with some biscuity notes in the afternose. Dark and roasty for a premium bitter/ESB, but Iím not complaining.

GadgetGeek (36) - Snellville, Georgia, USA - OCT 23, 2006
This beer IMHO is way better than the 55 % it is showing. I liked the sweet malty flavor with a bit of chocolate. Good sweet finish

DaMenace123 (253) - Houston, Texas, USA - OCT 20, 2006
Clear brown with amber hues. Aroma of sweet caramel malts. Flavor is sweet malt, but not intrusive. Well balanced, but doesnít really stand.

berkshirejohn (6331) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - OCT 20, 2006
Bottle: poured a deep coppery brown colour with a thick beige head which fell back leaving a still but glossily attractive pint. Sweet malty aroma, and a rounded malt taste, the hops are not intrusive, and the finish sweet but strong.

UPDATED: OCT 16, 2016 Amber coloured beer with a medium white head. Aroma is dried fruit. Flavor is malt with some dried fruit notes. Medium palate. Easy to drink.

Dedollewaitor (15832) - Odense, DENMARK - OCT 19, 2006
Bottle: Dark amber with little white head. Roasted malts - caramel - little sweetness & easy hops. Not very filling. Dry easy bitter finish. Not the worst beer in its category! However average!

Yard (45) - Senoia, Georgia, USA - OCT 18, 2006
Dark in color with no head. No lacing, roasted aroma. Hoppy, but dark. Not much aftertaste. Nothing to special. Average beer.
