look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75
Poured from a 12 ounce bottle into a pint glass. Best by date of June 2014 notched into the label.
Appearance: Cloudy golden body with a slight orange hue. Respectable foam head collapses to a creamy cap and does not leave much lacing.
Smell: Coriander dominates the nose. Orange juice and a bit of clove hang around as well.
Taste: The spices hit first. Coriander and orange zest are carried on a pretty bubbly body. The malts have a hard time breaking through the carbonation. This ones is sweet and tangy but lacks a strong grainy backbone.
Mouthfeel: As I mentioned this brew is very carbonated. Medium body. Easy to drink.
Overall: My main problem with Cold Snap was the lack of malts. The orange and spice were good but they need malts in order to round this one out. This was refreshing but is not a beer I will run out to buy more of any time soon.
Serving type: bottle
