look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

A: Slightly cloudy, reddish brown, auburn color

S: Carmel not very pungent

T: Orange hops to start, slight carmel malt, nice clean end

M: Big bold front front, effervecent crisp finish

O: Although it didnt blow me away as I like Christmas ales to do it is a nice beer. Not super heavy on malt, lighter than most winters out there. Pairs well with winter root veggies, perhaps some meatloaf

3.4/5  rDev -1.7%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Pours a crystal clear copper color with a brownish hue. The tight head is short and settles into a light cap.

The aroma is doughy and has notes of brown bread. Perhaps some black pepper and tea like scents. Not much "wintery spice" in the nose.

The taste is quite bready and has some toasted notes. There is some lemony tea like flavors to go along with an earthy spice. Can't quite pick out the specific spice but overall it is bitter. Perhaps a touch of cinnamon as it warms.

The feel is light to moderate with prickly carbonation. Starts off sweet on the palate but finishes with an earthy bitterness. Drinks fairly easy.

An ok brew, nothing really exciting. Well made, but nothing really pops to me.

3.45/5  rDev -0.3%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

A: The beer is crystal clear dark reddish brown in color and has a light amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a finger high beige head that died down rather quickly, leaving a thin head covering the surface and lots of lacy rings of bubbles down the sides of the glass.
S: There are light aromas of nuts and toasted malts in the nose.
T: The taste is similar to the smell and has some faint bits of malty sweetness and hints of spices and earthy yeast towards the finish. There is a light amount of bitterness.
M: It feels a little shy of medium-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation. There are some faint hints of dryness towards the finish.
O: This is an easy drinking brown ale and the spices add a nice twist of flavors in the finish.

3.49/5  rDev +0.9%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5

Appearance: 12oz bottle poured into a pint. Colour is a light brown with a faint orange tint. Head is short and fades slowly to a film leaving moderate lacing. Small traces of visible carbonation.

Smell: Malty, nutty, bready, and a little sweet.

Taste: Starts off malty and bitter but quickly fades into a balanced nutty biscuit flavour. Aftertaste is bready and sweet.

Mouthfeel: Medium body, very carbonated, almost abrasive. Finishes clean.

Overall: This brew is slightly above average at best. The flavours are nice but the intense carbonation takes away from what should be polished simplicity.
