Poured a glowing orange color with a very large, off white head. Some what of a wheat beer smell. Slightly bitter malt taste with extremely subtle hints of chocolate. Medium body, somewhat flat carbonation, and a long finish. Very simple, drinkable beer.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Nice reddish color with a soft carbonated head. Pine, earthy sharp fruit notes in the aroma. Plethora of flavors, dark fruits, malty, spices almost like eating a fruit cake but better. Soft and dry but somewhat creamy. Finishes tangy and dry with a liitle hop bite. give me more.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a deep amber color with a very small reamy white head which did not hang around very long. There really isn’t much in the way of aroma. Smells of bread and perhaps a touch of alcohol. There really wasn’t much in the way of flavor. It was served so cold I couldn’t really pick much up. Will need to revisit this beer at a later time. What I did pick up on was all rather light with very mild flavors of nuts and toffee. Really not much else going on here. Overall, this isn’t really anything too exciting. Very middle of the road for craft beer.

3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours amber with off-white head that is generous in size and retains rather well. Nose is soft with some toasty aromas and light caramel. Easygoing and appetizing aroma. More caramel and toasty flavors on the palate with less than average hopping for a winter warmer. Light to medium bodied and very, very drinkable.
