Smells hoppy, piney, citrus, fruity, smells real good. Taste does not keep with the smell, however. Not that it is a bad taste, it just doesn’t come through piney like the smell. Smells hoppy, tastes malty. Very warming taste to it. Overall, nice. Definitely distinguishes itself, however I was hoping for more of that piney taste but I guess thats why I bought SN Celebration.

A brown amber color. Roasty malt flavors. Some bitterness. I immediately thought red ale.

(Bottle) This ale isn’t that bad. It tastes similar to Pyramid Snow Cap, most Stone brews, Bass, and other traditional ales.

Draft: Had a amber pour with a nice head. Though dissapated quickly for me. The aroma was very nice and smelled... wintery (not surprisingly). Taste was nice, but perhaps overstaying its winter name.

Bottle. Pour hazy amber a little bit of maltiness on the nose with a hint of coriander spice. Malts are balanced with nice bitter hops on the palate but the body is not as big as I would like. Decent brew.

Smells like a good beer, malt, hops, a bit of citrus, Looks like a good beer, dark with a medium head. The taste however was a bit lacking. Initially it was nice but the finish was bland and a bit metallic.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Egg white type head, very dee copper color. Very fruity, hoppy aroma, hints of dry-hopping. Nutty, malty flavor with a hop flavor and lingering bitterness in the aftertaste. More in style with a thinnish IPA than an English Strong. Good beer, though.
