COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Copper amber in color, this medium bodied ale has a great balanced flavor. A fruity spicy hop finish compliments in malty caramel taste. Think of English pale ale dry hopped with German Tettnang hops. This ale was made to sustain you during the long New England winter.

Bottle shared by alexsdad06. Poured hazy dark copper color with an average frothy off-white head that lasted and produced good lacing. Moderate complex sour citrus and malt aroma. Medium body with a slick texture and soft carbonation. Medium to heavy balanced bittersweet flavor with a medium bittersweet finish of moderate duration. This is a good complex beer.

Pale murky amber brown pour. Spicy hops and a heavy malt backbone. Not terribly ruch for a winter ale, but serviceable with a spicy bitter malty finish.

Bottle. Pours a clear garnet tinged amber with a thin white head. A bit of plum and sweet malt on the nose, toast, caramel. Medium bodied, malty and toasty. Not a ton going on but I dont think theres supposed to be. Easy drinking, inoffensive. Unremarkable in any great or terrible ways, just a middle of the road easy drinking beer. Tasty enough.
