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."

Bottle gratefully received from Douglas88. Pours dark ruby amber with a significant beige/tan head. Strong malt aroma - not so much sweet as strong. Some supporting notes of chocolate and resin. Medium plus body with smooth, creamy carbonation. Flavor is malt, touch of chocolate, and a lot of hop, maybe mostly floral. Finish goes down to something like bitter chocolate. Seems well balanced. Very flavorful. It’s really nice to drink.

Sampled at Texas Beerfest. Pours a clear amber with a small beige head that diminishes quickly. The aroma is a raisin malt and fruit. Medium mouthfeel with a swet raisin and light hop. Very easy to drink, very good American strong ale from Wasatch.
