[Suggested Glassware: Shaker Glass]

The pour was a murky medium brown with a large (2-3 finger) light brown fizzy head that rapidly receded, down to a very thin fizzy film and small collar with poor lacing.

The aroma was of a toasted biscuit malt, light citrus hops and a musty yeast with notes of caramel, a light chocolate presence, coriander, ginger, citrus (orange peel) and a hint of cinnamon.

The taste was malty sweet and a tad acidic with a hint of caramel and a very light touch of chocolate at first, and then became a bit yeasty and slightly bitter sweet with a nice spicy citrus peel ending. The flavor lasted an average time proceeding the swallow, with a lightly spicy citrus taste left behind.

Mouthfeel was just above light in body with a watery, dry texture and a fizzy carbonation.

Overall this was a brew with a lot of flavor and a bold carbonation. What I really liked was the well rounded spicy ending which allowed the cinnamon to shine right at the finish, making this a smooth and tasty Winter Warmer with a really good drinkability...

12 oz bottle poured into pint glass.

A: Poured a reddish brown color with a fingers worth of head that settled to a ring with little to no lacing.

S: I'm getting lots of spices... Cinnamon, caramel, sweet malt and ginger seems to be the strongest things I'm getting... Smells a little like a pumpkin ale.

T: OK, it starts off sweet with caramel up front then all spices all kick in... lots of cinnamon and ginger... There is a herbal bitterness at the end that balances out the brew.

M: Medium bodied, it is smooth yet crisp with a fairly high carbonation.

O: Very nice... Little more Fall like than Winter warmer... But overall a very good beer from Natty.

Fairly good Winter Warmer. Pours a fairly dense murky brown color with light coming through at the bottom of the glass. A real hard pour produces a medium size light tan head with less than aerage retention.

Aroma is holiday spices, cinnamon, nutmeg, not too over-the-top.

Tastes good. A lot of winter warmers pile on the potpouree on top of a weak, watery beer. Red Nose is based on a robust malty beer. Bready malt, brown sugar and molassas. The spices enhance rather than overwhelm the beer.

Mouthfeel is rich and slightly sweet. Spices are very welcome on the tongue.

A nice winter warmer. Just the right level of spices on a rich beer.

Dark amber, almost brown, pour with little head and no lacing. Nose is quite faint but of dark malt and alcohol. Medium bodied with light carbonation. Somewhat smooth mouthfeel. The taste is pleasant and so well balanced that it is hard to identify the individual components. It consists of a light spiciness over an equally light dark malt sweetness. The finish is smooth. A good choice to introduce someone to craft brewing - a very good beer that doesn't over accentuate any aspect of craft beer.
