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. It’s our toast to Utah."

Ok. Here’s the situation. This a a very deep purple/red beer that goes down easy, and you know what that means. What else do you want me to tell you? It’s tinted red, has a Lacy, dirty white head and smells and taste like "good"? Yes, like good. You want to hear bout the malt and hops? Drink one yourself. Good hunting!

Picked up a single while exiting the Wasatch Pub. This is brownish ale with heavy sweet malt aroma and some hop background. Tastes sweet with caramel notes and good bitter balance. Has old ale feel to it, as many winter beers do.

reggiedunlop (3216) - The dub c, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 11, 2012
Pours deep amber/brown with a medium tan head...nice retention. Aroma has caramel, mild fruitiness, and faint tea-like hops. Flavor has significant tea-like hoppiness up front and caramel and roasty malts. Mouthfeel is medium and slightly creamy with a slightly roasted bitter and dry finish.

nuplastikk (4698) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 9, 2012
Deep red-brown, maybe filtered. Lacy, foamy beige head. Smooth, fruity amber malt aroma. Rich and malt centered, despite a respectable hopping...nothing on Sierra in the regard. Still a pretty solid winter offering, brown and amber combination. Some faint vanilla, wood. Piny, soapy hop tastes, not so complex, but offer a steady bitterness. OK.

Bottle from Choice Beverages. Pours a deep red/mahogany with a medium tan head. The aromas are dark fruit, brown sugar, and cherry codrial. The mouthfeel is bitter and slightly dry with a medium/heavy body and low carbonation. Great beer. Cheers!

This poured a darker amber to brown color with a beige head. Aroma was nutty, and caramel/toffee malt, and soem light grassy andpiney hops. Flavor was very light pijne, chewy nuggat and toffee, and soem dark fruits. Definitely not like celebration at all.

Poured a deep, dark brown with a wispy head. No where near the profile of a SN Celebration, so I don’t even knwo why they refrence that in the CD.
