COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Wasatch Winterfest is a rich amber ale with caramel malt flavors and a large hop presence. Brewed with the finest Northwestern pale and caramel malts then generously hopped with Columbus and Amarillo hops. Crafted in the spirit and style of the Sierra Nevada Celebration. Inspiration? "This new seasonal was brewed to warm you through the cold winter months! Our Winterfest Ale makes a wonderful compliment to an epic day on the mountain, and the perfect companion around the fire. Itís our toast to Utah."

Has a brownish gold color with modest head. The aroma is of floral hops. The taste is lightly sweet. The palate is very smooth and strong bodied. This is quite a satisfying beer.

nimbleprop (4200) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - JAN 2, 2014
12oz bottle pours a clear copper amber with some lacing, off white head. Nose is very muddled, sweet, some brown sugar, some cake icing, some spice, some raisin, some root veg. Flavor is also muddled, sweet and astringent, a little sweet tea, some Splenda, dried apple slices. Slightly tannic finish. All over the place.
