A sweet, sticky mess. Way too much cinnamon, even for the style.

A: very nice hazy red ale. Head is big and lasting.

S: What you see in winter warmers: cinnamon, cloves, honey sweetness.

T: Again, cinnamon is powerful, cloves are powerful and honey sweetness is too. But, the tart taste that is present in most beers of this style lacks a bit here. But, it is nice to see some hop bitterness there.

M: Nice creamy ale. Very smooth to drink and has medium body. Medium carbonation. Problem is it is a bit too light for my tastes.

D: I really don't know why, but this one is a bit low for such an easy tasting beer. Strange.
