Sampling right now on 12/24/13. Bottle chilled down to 36 degrees F in my beer cooler and poured into a pilsner glass.

Poured a slight hazy amber in color with a very small white head that left good lacing. The aroma is of sweet spices with the cloves standing out. You could taste the various spices including the cloves with a light hint of honey. Actually it is a very good brew and didn't have a harsh bitter aftertaste unlike some other 'winter beers'.

Poured from a bottle to a pint glass with a unfiltered amber glow,fair 2 fingered head that stayed a bit, thin lace hung to the sides nicely. Smell held bread notes with spices such as clove, taste held clove as well with a slight bite and honey undertones. Mouthfeel was nice with a lot going on, wish I had several more to get them all. A nice Amber Ale made for Winter drinking and it fills the bill, it's local to me but I'm not biased, just happy to be able to grab a 6 pack for a Holiday party and support a home town brew.
