Spicier than winter lager. Good to sip on one, not drink more than one.

Great festive winter warmer, very well balanced spices.

Refreshing and smooth with a Carmel malt overtone. Good beer

Good malt and mild spice taste. Good on a cold day or night. Not a fan of the spice but this one was ok. Bottle at M&K's

Good flavor but too thin and low-ABV to be a winter warmer ale.

Good winter beer. Rich spice yet smooth and drinkable. I'd buy more

Nothing special. Came in a pack. I drank it but wouldn't seek it out. profile - January 12, 2016
The nose is sweet, vaguely cinnamon and apples. Color is dark chocolate brown. It's almost opaque, but I can just make out the lettering on the opposite side of my glass when held up to the glass. The head is frothy dingy white. I take the first sip and say, hum ... This is tasty! It gives off the taste of the spices without being spicy. It's balanced between he cinnamon and ginger, but I must admit that I don't really taste any orange. Aftertaste is slight. Not too bitter, but rather filling. This might be the perfect cold weather brew, but if you want something a bit bolder, go with the Holiday Porter from Sam Adams.
