Enjoyed this at the windward tavern... Poured a dark rich mahogany color, and had a 2 finger cream colored head.
Smelled of some sweet malty notes, roasted grains and coffee I n the background. Tasted much like it smelled and it was quite enjoyable! Would drink this again and considering its so local, gotta love it!!!

This a great example of the style. Malty, toasty, a tiny hint of smoke, faint bready and sweet malts. Clean crisp dry finish, medium bodied with good carbonation. Refreshing balanced and flavorful. So on point for the style.

A friend of mine who lives in Point Pleasant gave me two bottles of this to try.

Appearance: Dark brown, almost black.

Smell: Slightly roasty, a little bit of chocolate. Not much hops.

Taste: Similar to the taste. The hops aren't noticeable but the overall flavor of the beer is mild as a schwarzbier should be.

Mouthfeel: Relatively lLight in body; not Coors-light light, more like Yeungling.

Overall: A decent session beer, nice to have on a cool fall night. As long as you don't grab a bottle of this expecting to get blown away, you will not be dissapointed. Consider this a decent alternative for someone who drinks Newcastle, but wants something a little more mild.

Winter Rental Black Lager is a dark brown beer when poured into a glass. Hold it up to the light and it becomes a clear dark copper color.

It has a tan head. and left some lacing on the glass.

This is a medium bodied beer. On the light side for a dark beer.

Well carbonated with a nice mouthfeel.

It drinks easy like a like a lager should.

This is a mild beer. It has a mild roasted malt aroma. The flavor is mild too. Roasted malts with only a slight bitterness.

Overall, Winter Rental is an enjoyable beer.

Picked up a single from the Wegman's in Allentown. It pours a dark brown with a tall off-white head. The body is thicker and creamy, like an oatmeal stout. There's a little roast in the aroma and flavor, a hit of dark fruit, and a mild dry cocoa flavor in the finish. There's a bitter bite in the finish a la Irish stout for a pleasant finish. The mid-flavor is a little bland, the flavors aren't popping, but it's still a tasty beer worth checking out.
