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."

Nice head and lacing, clear dark amber color. Smells of hops, citrus, ligh malt. Taste is of carmel, malt, hops, citrus. This is a very good session beer. Reminds me of a light Arrogant Bastard.

riversideAK (5738) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - JUN 6, 2009
Bottle from Douglas88.Thanks! Tons of caramel malt, toffee, and darker fruits in the aroma. A touch of earthy hops. Pours auburn with a frothy head and some good lace. Mostly full of caramel malt presence, there is also some toffee, light earthy notes, and some fruity sweetness. Malt centric up front, there are some floral, earthy, piney hop resins that dry out the finish and add nice balance to an otherwise straight up malty brew. These hippies on Whale Wars are a bunch of weiners.
