Overall, this is a disappointing brew. There aren't too many winter warmers that bore me but this might be the first one.
The color is a fairly dark amber with ok lacing and a beige head.
Smell is difficult to to detect; maybe a little bit of spice, some maltiness and even citrus (?).
Nice alcohol on the sides of the tongue and good hoppy
No outstanding spices come to the forefront.
I bought a six-pack of it today so here's hoping that the next
bottle is better.
Updating this review after 3 bottles (over 4 days), it still does not
seem to even rate as a "winter warmer". It's a decent pale ale and very drinkable but not special enough for a seasonal. (I wonder if the recipe has changed in the many years since it was reviewed by the Alstrom Bros)
