COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Winter in California…It’s finally turning on your heater. It’s going to Tahoe on a whim. It’s lounging by the pool in December. This lager-like beer blends wine yeast for soft fruit character with pomace for spice and depth. Layered malts express hints of cocoa, nutmeg, and fresh roasted chestnuts. Brewed to celebrate shorter days and colder nights, it’s everything you love about the season—without the frostbite. Drink up: while carving the slopes...brah. Pair with: New Year’s resolutions, honey-roasted ham.

bb (9789) - Alamo, California, USA - MAY 29, 2016
Draft. Amber-brown beer with a big cream head. Yeast and malt aroma. Yeast and malt flavor with light caramel. Medium bodied. Light caramel and light mineral lingers with light fruitiness.

bhensonb (15852) - Woodland, California, USA - FEB 29, 2016
Capped 750 from the Vacaville Nugget. Pours bright copper with a foamy beige head. Aroma of toasty/spicy malt with some mild fruit. Med body or so. Flavor is roasty malt, mild berry, spice, and in the finish a rather strong chocolate. Goes a bit earthy. And a bit nutty. Very different.

Fatehunter (2624) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - DEC 24, 2015
Pours a half finger of head on a clear darker straw body.
The aroma is clean and fruity.
The taste is mellowed malt, a little caramel, from fruits, and nuts.
The texture is crisp and fizzy.
It’s an enjoyable brew.
