COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This unfiltered ale is light in color but full in body. It was aged on Hungarian Oak lending a slight vanilla flavor. The use of Maris Otter malt and the low level of carbonation is reminicent of a historic English ale.

Impressive Winter Warmer -- announced as a Winter Lager at the Brewpub, but ale is what I tasted when I sampled, to my highly attuned and educated tongue. Beautiful hazed copper appearance and strong malt nose gave this beer a bit of a separation from other microbrews. It poured flat, no problem, but tasted a bit flat too, almost puddled on the palate, but otherwise a very tasty beer from a brewery that specializes, so it seems, on making the ordinary -- not in this case. Well done.

Thanks to hopdog for this… Appears a hazy light gold with a small white head that slowly fades out. Smell is of peach, apricot, spices…nutmeg, oak, vanilla. Taste is of the same aromas. Nicely blended in a creamy blended brew. Mouthfeel is sugary, oaky, slightly fruity, and well balanced.

Pale golden, bubbly. Aroma spice, citrus, malt. Medium body. Despite the description was quite carbonated. Flavor off-dry, some spice and lemon and a bit of hops. Ok.

Orange hazy body with thin lacing offwhite head. Aroma is pie crust, cinnamon, sweet spice. Flavor is spice, citrus, caramel. Smooth palate.
