I poured a bottle into tulip glass.

Appearance- Clear brown-amber color with a half a fingers worth of quickly disappearing head. Hardly any lacing.

Smell- Strong aroma of toasted bread with caramel malt and bitter hops notes.

Taste- Caramel malt flavor with some hop bitterness toward the finish. After taste is too sweet.

Mouthfeel- On the light side of medium bodied with a below average amount of carbonation.

Overall- Not very good. I am glad I only purchased this as part of a pick-six pack instead of a whole six pack. It had a good aroma but was a total disappointment after that.

It was the only non macro-lager available where I was tonight. Oh well...

Appearance: A transparent kind of dark amber. It pours a little head, which quickly disappears to nothing. No lacing.

Smell and Taste: Smells just like it tastes... Totally one dimensional, and concentrated around a vanilla flavor. Too sweet for me.

Mouthfeel: I guess it feels okay, but not excellent. Kind of slick going down.

Overall: I won't buy it ever again. I think I had it last winter, and had forgotten how it was. For a seasonal offering, I was expecting something at least halfway special. I know this is a macro-owned brew, but even those can hit occasionally. This one missed. Pass on it unless its free.

Disappointing for a Winter Ale; not as much flavor and body as I would want. A little bitter on the finish. The taste is good, but it disappears too quickly. Tastes very much like a typical lager, eg. Yuengling. I would like it to be heavier and more flavorful.
