3.56/5 rDev +1.7%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5
Pours a dark reddish brown with a massive tan head. Aromas of vanilla, citrus and brown sugar. Taste begins with some vanilla, then some orange, then a big caramel malt finish. A tiny bit of bitterness in the aftertaste. Mouth feel is full. Overall an easy drinking winter warmer.
Serving type: on-tap

This poured a deep, auburn hue with a thick cap of dense foam. Quite striking in appearance.
The scent is a little lost on me but I do find some nice malt character. There is some barley, caramel, roasted grain and then a hop cone finish.
The flavor resembles more a pale ale on my palate as I get a lot of the barley malt coupled with a flowery hop. I get no spice, as I'd expect from a warmer but it seems to follow all the tasty qualities of a Pale Ale.
The feel is very full, smooth and hearty without being too airy with carbonation.
This is a quality Pale Ale, whether the description claims otherwise.
