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."

BMan1113VR (7858) - Los Angeles, California, USA - OCT 24, 2009
Bottle thanks to bu11zeye. Pours with a tan head and a brown body. Aroma of raisins, chamomile tea and honey. Must have been a old bottle as there were not a large amount of hops...at all. Taste was sweet with caramel and a bit tea like. Medium bubbles.

nuplastikk (4396) - 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.
