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."

Pours a burnt red color with a lasting white head. Aroma of pine and citrus hops, spice and roasted caramel malt. Flavor is much the same, big malt starts it off with the spice and a buttload of hoppiness coming in later. Very tasty stuff.

Sparky (2244) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - MAY 14, 2009
Bottle courtesy of douglas88. Pours clear dark reddish brown with a dense 2 finger tan head that sticks around like an iceberg and leaves delicate lacing. The nose is sweet caramel, overly ripe fruit and brown sugar. The taste is caramel malt, citrus and some nice resin bite in the finish. Not as sweet as the aroma suggests, which is a huge plus. Medium bodied. Good beer Ė I donít think Iíve had a bad one from them yet. Thanks Douglas!

MikeJslc (768) - USA - NOV 17, 2012
UPDATED: NOV 26, 2012 Deep copper, clear, tan head. Aroma of bready malt, toffee, light chocolate, spicy and resiny hops with a hint of grassiness (this is a 2012, seems hoppier than prior years). Flavor is similar with resiny-piney hops, underlying malt of bread crusts, toffee, light chocolate. Medium-full bodied. Great winter warmer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle from Bandits on Main Street in Park City. Nice caramel color. This beer took me by surprise. Great spices and complex taste. Reminded me of a barely wine actually. Carbonation was low with thick mouthfeel. Malt, spices and hops made this complex but balanced beer

tronraner (2459) - Walland, Tennessee, USA - FEB 2, 2009
Bottle thanks to douglas88. Pours a dark color that resembles cherrywood varnish with a thin khaki head. The aroma is sweet and hoppy with some goond tangerine and pine notes, some brown sugar, burnt caramel, and a hint of leather. The flavor is some general piney hops with a current of caramel and toffee beneath it. Some grapefruit qualities emerge after a few sips, as well as a faint hazelnut note. The finish is dry and pleasantly hoppy. This here is a pretty good brew.

DalzAle (2010) - Eden Prairie, Minnesota, USA - APR 9, 2009
Bottle. Dark brown pour, some light carbonation with a little malt and hop aroma. Flavor was rich and bitter caramel, hops and very herbal. Finish was a warming and mellowed out as time went on. I think this was my 1st Utah beer, and i really dug it!

courtesy of wasatch pours light brown, frothy beige head. Aroma is hoppy, caramel malts, with nice light roast. Flavor, same as aroma, profile leans toward a good roasted malts, chocolate and some spices, grainy and bready mouthfeeel. Finish with light hops, some chocolate. Tasty.

TLNash886 (228) - Idaho, USA - NOV 19, 2009
Pours a near-impenetrable reddish-brown into a snifter. Decent amount of off-white head. Aroma of hops, hops, hops, and more hops. Little bit of pine and some floral sweetness. Considering the nose, I was expecting this to be a disappointingly over-hopped brew. Much to my joy, it had a decent amount of malty sweetness to balance it out. Medium carbonation that sits well in your mouth. Surprisingly drinkable with a pleasant sweet floral finish. Not too complex, but surprisingly fairly well balanced. Not too shabby.

machfive55 (358) - Columbia, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 22, 2009
Poured dark reddish brown with three fingered head. The aroma was strong piney hop notes. Flavor was strong piney hops and bitterness, very IPA like, surprising that malt does not come through more. Palate was rich with a light carb. Overall malt comes through more and the hops mellow as the beer warms but this is hop dominated at first.
