2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Not bad, but there are better Winter Warmers out there.
Apperance was nice, poured a reddish brown with a figer or so of foam. The head lasted for some time. Looked tasty
Aroma, ale yeast was present, along with some fruit, cherry and current.
Initially the taste is fruity with the cherry and current flavors coming through, a nice balanced hop flavor is clear throughout the taste (I would assume Northern Brewer or Bullion hops). The balance of the initial flavors is overshawdowed on the back in by strong ale yeast flavors.
Mouthfeel is normal, and the drinkability is somewhat lower than expected.
Avery Old Jubilation is a very similar beer in flavor, but much better in my opinion.
