11.2oz brown bottle with no freshness date.

Reddish brown with ample head. Mild caramel in the nose with bready undertones and a faintness hop hop ... very clean. Some smoothness, mildy crisp with a moderate sized body. Toasted grain, hint of roastiness, grape skin, slightly metallic, slightly sharp bitterness, kiss of caramel, wet body, bone dry finish. Not sure what to think here, not much of a winter ale ... of body nor strength. I guess I expected a bit more, just seems a bit overly processed.
