3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Caramel malt balances nicely with lightly spicy hops in the nose. Clear golden-copper with decent and lasting, pillowy, white head. Some lacing. Light sweet caramel malts balance well with spicy hop flavour and decent balancing bitterness. Medium-light body and strong, effervescent carbonation. Sure, it’s pretty conservative for a winter seasonal and doesn’t exactly push the envelope, but really, for a pale lager, it’s fairly good. Bottle.

Amber color, medium white head. Sweet and malty aroma and flavor. Light body. How the hell is this supposed to be a winter lager ? It’s just another ordinary brew from RJ ... now, a doppelbock, that would be a nice winter lager.

Humm, this taste more like a regular macro beer to mee. Got to say the aftertaste is kinda sweet. Not really good for a seasonnal but not disgusting either....

This is another seasonnal beer from Brasserie RJ. This is actually a winter lager. Pourred a light colored brew with a medium head. The taste is quite light with a nice sweet aftertaste. I would have expected a stronger brew since this is a winter seasonal beer but overall it is not too bad.
