I poured this nondescript beer into my tumbler 40 degrees, the beer was a nice amber color and thats about it. The beer poured a really small flat head. The beer was bitter on the finish and weak tasting really. Really don't see any need to buy again.

look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Pours a crystal clear amber in the body with a slightly off white head, forms thick fine speckled lacing. Aroma offers some semi sweet toasted malts, cereal grains, and herbal earthy minimal hops in the backend. Flavor is middle of the road nice bready malts, semi sweet balanced with earthy hops, soft nutty character. Mouthfeel has ample carbonation a bit much, but overall what can I say these novelty beer labels are decent easy drinking beers middle of the road but they sell like hotcakes every holiday season, medium bodied at best. Overall I'm not sorry I tried this one very drinkable solid brewed beer labeled as a winter nut brown tastes more like a well constructed amber ale.

550ml bottle .Pours a cloudy brown with a quickly fading thin beige head. Aroma of caramel malt, yeast some dark fruity esters. Taste of caramel malt, yeast, mild dark fruit and nutty flavors. Palate is a medium body with mild carbonation. Finish is sweet caramel malt, yeast, some brown sugar, dark fruits with a bit of a nutty ending. Not the best in class but overall a good flavorful and pleasant drinking brew.

appearance- sparkling orangish brown color a finger of coarse white foam .

Aroma- citrus banana toast buttered brown sugar

Taste- roasted toasted bread dried fruit raisin toffee. kind of like a bread pudding malty not as sweet as a finish as a newcastle. some cola

Mouthfeel- lighter to medium bodied, malty sweet but not cloying. has a definite "holiday" sweetness.

Overall- yeah this and a warm bread pudding !

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.25

LOOK: Pours a perfectly clear copper. Soapy off white head forms and leaves plenty of lace.

SMELL: English ale yeast, bready malts, green apple.

TASTE: Caramel, tea like hop profile, very English. Soft toffee and buttery notes. Mild bitterness. Some brown sugar, nut and lightly toasted malt elements. For being 6% abv it's not even close to tasting strong. Quite mellow.

FEEL: Medium bodied, rich and smooth. Ample carbonation.

OVERALL: imported by the Shelton Bros, this is a very English tasting ale, mellow nutty flavors and overall easy to drink. Nothing earth shattering, this is just a solid little ale.

Produced a 1 finger cream color head. Nice lacing. Beer color is a translucent honey color. Lighter than most brown ales.
The smell is of lager yeast, bread, and a hint of nuts.
The taste is bolder than the appearance, and smell. It's similar to smell, but with more nuttiness, and a slight hop bite. Medium mouth-feel.
Mediocre beer... not bad, and easy drinking.

On draft into a pint
A- light in color for its style. Small head but good retention. Minimal lacing
S- little to note here, Disappoonting
T- straw, hay, mild malts but not what I'd expect from the style. Mild and average.
M- good carbonation, decent mouthfeel, pretty full
O- weak and lacking the normal characteristics of the style. Tastes more like an American adjunct lager. Pass
