Ba Review #85
Served On: 11/10/2011
Glassware: Pint Glass
Labeled ABV: -
Date/ Code: -

Had this one on tap at the Stoudt's brewery in Adamstown, PA back on Thursday.

Look: A brownish copper color served in a pint glass. A reddish hue appeared when held to the light. Head was a 2 finger layer of lighter tan foam.

Smell: Aroma was very spicy with the hops creating most of the nose. Also some dark maple, cinnamon and the other usual spices found in most winter releases.

Taste: First were the spices - then the hops kicked in and basically dominated most of the palate. The middle and finish were of more hops and a hint of dry spice that made for a nice aftertaste.

Overall this was a good winter ale. The server said it was a hoppy red ale this year - and she was right! Body was rather thin, but the hoppiness was extremely nice for a change.

Serving type: on-tap

look: 4 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2.5

12oz bottle poured into a Guinness pint glass.

Pours a light amber with a one finger light brown head that starts lacing right away. Nose is malty and earthy, also a bit metallic which is fairly off putting.

Taste is overwhelmingly metallic/iron which is really hurting the flavor as I drink it. Mouthfeel is quite watery and the carbonation is sharp. Overall this is a mediocre beer but on close out it was a good deal.

First had: on tap at Teikoku, Edgemont, PA

Another disappointment, in that when I see something called a "winter" beer, I expect a winter warmer or something with a bit of spice, and this wasn't that. It was still a decent brew though.

On tap, poured into a stem glass, clear copper in color with a thin, eggshell head; minimal lacing. Sweet, toasted malts in the aroma, caramel; some light resinous hops detectable. No spice. :( Sweet taste with caramel malts coming through, light indistinct fruit notes, a bit grassy, with some hints of pine, providing a bit of balance and dryness. Medium bodied, and pretty nice to drink.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

A: Pours a clear amber color with a thin white head that fades quickly and leaves some lacing.

S: Smells strongly of hops with a hint of sweet berries in the background.

T: The taste is dominated by the hop flavor. Almost tastes like an IPA. After the hop flavor dies down, there is a hint of sweet flavor in that comes through. The beer finishes with a malty hoppy aftertaste. Overall the beer was too balanced to hops for me.

M: Relatively thin beer with a slight amount of chew to it.

O: Overall the beer was pretty good. A little too much like an IPA rather than a winter red ale. If you like hoppy beers, then this winter beer will definitely be for you.

Poured a deep dark amber with a nice one inch off white head and a good amount of lace. Nice retention on the head as well. Smell was deeply hopped, with a nice pine resin aroma and a hint of light grain. My first impression was a bit light in the carbonation, and a slight slickness or oilyness to it. Big hop profile was very nicely balanced against the malted grain back.
