The beer is mahogany and murky with a thin beige collar. The aroma offers a heavy dose of malt, caramel, brown sugar, light spice. Molasses and holiday spice. A tad sweet. Light to medium in body with pretty low carbonation. This one is ok and enjoyable on a cold rainy day.

Natty Greene's Red Nose Winter Ale is better than I expected. First taste was Christmas Tree, but in a good way. Loved the favors, cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger; reminding me of Moravian Christmas cookies. Good head on the pour, from a 12oz bottle, but disappeared quickly, as did the beer. Must have been thirsty. If you're looking for a Winter/Christmas Ale, got to try this one.

Poured into standard pint glass, at slightly-warmer-than-preferred temp. Deep amber pour, with fine sediment, and light beige head. Head reduces to nothing after a few minutes. Molassas heavy, with slight orange rind and raspberry off the nose. More pronounced orange in the taste, resolves with nice tart bitterness and ginger snap. Mouthful brings out more cinnamon, but it’s underwhelming.

Overall, not a bad winter sipper.

Good balance of spice not much orange flavor. I'm not usually a fan of beers with spice but this one is not overpowering.

12 is bottle poured into a pint glass. Overall this was somewhat bland and disappointing. Appearance is very red and almost weak looking.
Heavy carbonation and fizzy in the mouth. Almost non-existent head. Aroma fairly flat bit a hint of orange. Tastes of Spices but non-descript. A bit sweet.
