Bottle from trade side by side with other Penn stuff. Pours a reddish amber color with a creamy white head. Sweet cinnamon candy aroma, a bit of toffee and caramel. Flavor is a bit of cinnamon on top of what seems to be that cream cheese icing flavor that I didn’t expect. A bit of nuttiness in there as well. Medium bodied with slightly prickly carbonation. This is a neat beer and seems like it would be good for the holiday times. Just like it is described.

I don't know why everyone treats this beer so unfavorably. I tried basically every winter beer this year (2013-14) and this was one of my favorites. Call me biased because it's from my hometown but this can hold its ground next to the more aggressive beers of the season. It's got the subtle spices that you'd want in a winter beer but it doesn't brag. The relatively low alcohol content doesn't make it much of a sipper but Pittsburgh winters have the mildness to match. Overall, I'm glad I found this in a variety pack but I would probably not buy a whole case of it.
