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."

emacgee (3954) - Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA - JUN 4, 2009
Pours a ruby dark copper with a one finger frothy light tan head. The nose is malty and sweet, raisiny, nice pungent nose. Good malt complexities. Flavor is a step down. Less held together. Sweet, malty, mild peanut shell flavor. Palate is a little bland and watery. So much potential going in.

12oz bottle from Gription79. Pours dark rusty brown with small tan head. Aromas of caramel, toffee, spice, and piney hops. Flavors of toffee and caramel malts, bit of earthy spice, and faded hops. This one is probably pasts its prime, but still drinkable.

Scrapersnbeer (1464) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - FEB 18, 2012
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.

Powertrip (999) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - NOV 6, 2012
Single bottle purchased from a Utah State Liquor Store in Kimball Junction, Utah on 11/02/2012. Colour: Dark brown with red hues and low head with lots of lacing. Nose: Heaping mounds of toffee infused malt. Hint of maple syrup. Chocolate dipped cherries. Shortbread. Total sugar-based nose. Taste: medium-high sweet, medium-light bitter, light sour. Layers of varying degrees of cocoa percentages. Espresso shots. Hearty malt again displays maple mid-late palate. Good for a bottle or two, but to sweet to enjoy over an entire evening.
