This has been in my fridge for a while. Took a while to get around to it!

Pours a brick red color with a nice head into my glass. There's even a smidgen of lacing!

Lots of hops with a hint of citrus to them. Kind of an unusual choice for a seasonal. Regardless, the aroma is good enough.

Bursting with flavor, especially that of chewy, bready malt and hops with a mild citrus bite. Liquid bread, indeed.

Lingering bready malt and citrus hops make up the mouthfeel. Nothing out of the ordinary.

A simple, tasty amber ale for the winter months. Good for when you don't want a bucketful of hops (and no, this isn't and act of "homerism" because this beer is quite fucking tasty regardless of the brewery!)

Radiant amber with nice cream white lace on the glass.

Nice notes of pine sap with orange, granola and brown sugar.

Really well balanced nice deep bready malt with a kick of citrus and pineapple. Solid bitter in the finish makes for wanting more sips.

Mouthfeel is medium bodied, smooth, lightly sweet finish.

Another outstanding new beer from a vastly underrated brewery.

Enjoyed in a pint glass

A: pours a deep amber color that is very clear with a finger of light tan and slight amber colored head that is creamy and lingers just shortly, leaves a ton of lacing
S: some sort of spice that i really cant place, slight pine and cinnamon, definitely what i would expect for the style
T: nice taste for the style, great depth and spice notes, really complex and nice
M: medium carbonation tingle, leaves a bit of a spice note on the palate, smooth, silky
O: a nice representation of the style, really nice spice notes, drinks really nicely
