look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Poured from a 12 oz. bottle. Has a very dark brown color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is of ginger, spices. Taste is spices, malts, ginger, a touch of sweetness. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall, while not something I would drink regularly, is a tasty and enjoyable change of pace.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.25

Poured from a 12oz bottle into a US tumbler pint glass.

A: The beer is a dark brown color, with a thin off-white head that fades quickly and leaves a thin lace on the glass.

S: The aroma contains ginger spice, caramelized malts, maple and a touch of hops.

T: The taste starts out a strong ginger spice flavor just like the smell indicates. Then some sweet flavors of maple and caramel come in. The malt character is hearty and there’s a mild hops presence brings a decent balance. The after-taste is slightly bready and slightly sweet.

M: Crisp and a little smooth, medium body, medium carbonation, finish is slightly sticky.

O: A little tasty, goes down ok, not too filling, mild kick, decent representation of style, just a mediocre beer overall.

look: 3.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5

I picked this up at Wegman's in a mix-a-six, bottle poured chilled in a mug.

The color is a medium brown like cocoa with moderate haze with thin white head after settling and small bead no lace clings. The smell has a dry ginger hint with mild toasted grain aroma with a light hint of caramel and vanilla. The feel is ok, moderately carbonated with a slight bite of spice with butter aspect and dry nutty feel with slight woody yeast and mild sweet tinge in the background.

The flavor has a mild ginger flavor with dry quality and slight buttery toasted grain with light cookie-like sweetness and gentle caramel flavor that leads to a mild yeast element which accentuates the woody quality of the ginger and leads to a dry finish. Overall I liked the combination of flavors but the feel was a little harsh and I probably would not drink several but it was good for a winter spiced ale worth trying.
