This beer was intensely regrettable. Too sweet, and yet too sour, with a weird, sort of sickening whiskey barrel backflavor but no whiskey taste. It had a nice smoothness and (thank God) no real aftertaste. slick feel, medium body, heavy cloying sweetness, medium sourness, orange, clear, minimal head,

Poured from the tap. Hazy orangey yellow with white head. Mild sweet malt flavour with subtle caramel. Grassy hops in the background and on the finish. Dry end.

Earthy, floral, citrus aroma. Golden color with decent carbonation and white foam. Good mouthfeel light+ body with lots of layered hop flavor with a nice sweet bread flavor. Pretty tasty stuff, but could use a label change I thought it was a Belgian ale before reading the ingredients.

Winter Beer Fest, Philadelphia: Pours golden with a white head. Aroma is rather light, with some spice, pine, and the like. Taste is hoppy. Good amounts of pine. A little bit on the sweet side. It is a hard beer to characterize. Nothing special though.

Bomber. Pours a clear bright orange color with a small white head. A big aroma of sweet malts, toast, sweet tea and sugar. The flavor is more sugary toasted malts, the Munich comes in big here and provides a lot of the flavor and fits a bit oddly I think. Sort of spicy sweet Oktoberfest mixed with hops, mellow Crystal. Doesn’t really work for me. Seems like it should be way smaller. OK. Cool name.

I opened the bottle and expected a little more aromatic malt coming up through the neck, but gave it a purposeful pour and found a little more of the aroma I wanted from the mouth of the glass. The first quaff is a dry, bitter pine with an apricot sneaking up from the foundation, and the balance I expected from the malt is really something I’m having to reach for. The carbonation is nice, just right, I think; the head is soft, off-white. Although it doesn’t stay as huge as I poured, it definitely sticks around to the finish of the glass. I do enjoy a nice, long-lasting head. This isn’t going to be a beer I buy again, and I think this has a nice potential, but I am not a fan of the current batch.

Bottle. Light amber and hazy. Soft white head, not much retention. Strong malt flavor, contains some dark fruit sweetness. Sweetness focused in the middle, strong caramel flavor. Bitter, but not overpowering, finish.

Bottle (12oz $1.75): Hazzy light brown/amber. Smallish white head. Tastes sweet and spicy. Very Malty. Slight bitterness in the middle then more sweetness and a little metallic taste. Enjoyable.

"a very nice winter warmer. robust and malty, but with enough hops to balance. full flavored and warming on a cold night, which is just what i was looking for. 2013 much more ipa like, spicy and good. Pretty s substantially different, though."

That’s how you make a winter ale. 7.5% alc. to keep warm. Light and crisp so you can drink a few. And the hops are subtle enough to enjoy. December 6th, 2012.
