Give the gift of beer! More specifically, Brrr! The Widmer Brothers have handcrafted a special ale for the holiday season: a generous red ale. Not quite excessively hopped, with candy sweetness and a velvety finish. Perfect for celebrations. Prost!

Formerly known as W06 NW Red Ale

Palatsilla 3/2015. Quite sweet, some dark fruits. Not very unique, enjoyable anyway.

Drank from a 12 oz bottle. Aroma is your standard beer aroma. Flavor is slightly bitter at first and then yields to a slight sweet and crisp beer. Does have any strong seasonal spices to it, which I like! Nice, easy drinking seasonal!

I really liked this Ale. I've not been a Widmer fan until this week be. Hops are noticeable but not overpowering and the flavor hits on the back side of the tongue. Nice color and medium head. Very good seasonal beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

rondphoto (3162) - Lakeside Park, Kentucky, USA - MAR 12, 2015
bottle @ Party Town / Florence KY --- Clear dark amber color, frothy solid beige head, streaks of lace. Nice aroma of malt and hops. Taste is strong malt that adds sweetness as it moves through the palate to a creamy, medium-length, pine hopped finish. A big filling brew, but also quite good.

Aroma has christmas "cumin bread" maltiness. Pours hazy copper with a small head that leaves some lacing, Alcohol hits first in taste, then maltiness with light sweetness. Medium body with average carbonation. Overall not that pleasant. Boozy.

magicmn (131) - Moscow, RUSSIA - FEB 8, 2015
Bottled at hophead. Dark red colour. Low carbonation. Malty aroma with trace of hope notes. Taste is rich malty with enough non-agressive bitterness on back. Good balance but bit too simple imo.

Clear, light copper. Medium body, light flavor, smooth texture, very long palate. Moderately bitter but not too dry, good acidity but not what one expects in a red ale. Holiday spices, hoppy, herbal, some malt in background. Pleasant, tasty. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

snoworsummer (3742) - baltimore, Maryland, USA - JAN 21, 2015
From a bottle. Pours hazy copper with a bubbly off white head. Tastes like booze, pine hops, caramel, resin, malty, and dry grapefruit. Light body and low carbonation. Smells like citrus hops, booze, caramel, and nutty malt.

heemer77 (5210) - Urbandale, Iowa, USA - JAN 14, 2015
Bottle. Dark reddish brown colored body with a thin off white head. Sweet caramel and leather are present in the nose. Peaches and cinnamon are also present. This one is boozy at the end of each drink. Peaches are spice notes of nutmeg and cinnamon are also tasted. There is a slightly leathery finish. An overall rough drinking beer between the boozy and slightly soapy finish.

Amber and ruby tones. Passion fruit and tropical smells. Agreeable enough while tasting, I expected a little more on the hops side. Tasty enough - but will take me awhile to get through this 6pck ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
