2.7/5 rDev -25%
look: 3 | smell: 2 | taste: 3 | feel: 2 | overall: 3
Poured a nice amber color with a decent white head that faded fast and nice lacing. Faint carbonation.
The only smell was a faint scent of berries or fruit.
Muted coffee and burnt oak flavors, faint hops kick and a slight bitter aftertaste.
Mouthfeel was bland and a little syrupy.
This is a decent beer and highly drinkable but not what I expected in a winter lager. I expected much bolder flavors than this.
I'd be interested to re-review this when next year's comes out and try it earlier in the season.
