My first winter warmer of the season. Had it out of a small snifter during a beer dinner at Mellow Mushroom in Fayetteville, NC.
My favorite beer style. I remember this beer being good, but not being overly impressive. Trying it tonight,
The Aroma is very faint in the winters spices. Nothing over the top.
Taste is very bold compared to the aroma. Decent amount of spices, definitely nutmeg, without being overpowering.
Mouthfeel is very light, but not watery by any means.
Overall, might not be comparable to some of the powerhouse Winter Warmers that we all crave at the end of every year, but this one is definitely worth checking out. Don't miss out.

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.
