COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our winter seasonal is a nod to the classic altbiers of Dusseldorf. A full, toasty malt profile is countered by generous additions of German Hops. Well balanced but assertively hopped, this complex but approachable beer is ideal for shaking off the chill of winter.

Tap. Pours clear amber with a medium, fizzy white head, medium retention with good lacing. Aroma is caramel, toast, and nutty malt, light Noble hops and a clean lager nose. Flavor is spicy hops, light bitterness, moderate malt, clean lager character and a dry finish. Medium body, warmth, and carbonation.

Elwood (3336) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - MAR 16, 2012
Pours a hazy, slightly ruddy brown with a decent, off white head of foam. The nose has a bit of plastic, floral hops, and slight malt notes. The flavor starts off floral but then transitions to the malt with the notes of bread, slight nuttiness, and a touch of caramel. There is a lingering bitterness in the back. Medium to full body with prickly carbonation and a slightly oily mouthfeel. A little unusual but not bad.

hfmejias (1282) - Marshall, Minnesota, USA - JAN 15, 2013
Out of the bottle poured a hazy dark brown color, malty and sort of Piney aroma. Taste is nice lots of hops, with a citrus touch/aftertaste...

Beerathon (1683) - Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 12, 2014
This beer deserves better than a 60 rating. Mahogany in color with thin white head. Nose of malts and mild spices. Flavor profiles lends to toasted and semi-sweet malts and a nice hop counterbalance. Decent.

Scubatrip (610) - Annandale, Virginia, USA - JAN 11, 2013
From the bottle, pours a hazy brownish red with a thin white head and nice lacing. Thick earthy malty aroma. Taste wants to be thick but feels more carbonated than it actually is. Earthy malty, brown sugar and molasses, an attempt at sweetness that fails to really catch on, ending with a mild bitterness of earthy hops. Almost a refreshing beer while ice cold. I give this an "ok".

ROGUE (2205) - Lewes, Delaware, USA - AUG 13, 2013
12oz bottle. Pours a clear amber color with a half finger head that dissipates immediately. Aroma of sweet bready malt upfront. A fruity yeast aroma a little deeper. Hints of caramel and maple syrup. Taste is sweet and malty, with fruity esters, a hint of hops, and a slightly bitter finish. Medium body, medium carbonation, smooth.
