One good reason to come to Oregon during the winter season. I haven't a Jubilale for a few years and I was looking forward to having one. Winter 2003-04. It starts off with a big lingering head with plenty of lace. The color is dark amber with traces of ruby. The aroma is citrusy with a nice floral bouquet. As to the taste, It is citrusy (grapefruit) with a good blend of flavoring hops and caramel overtones and it is a little sweet. The mouthfeel is a bit doughy with a good hop bite. The finish is dry and bitter with some sweetness. At first this beer was too hoppy for my winter beer taste. However, it mellowed as it warmed up a bit. The malt characteristics became more prominent and balanced out the hops perfectly for my taste. Not a bad beer at all.

On tap at the Local Taphouse.
Pours a red colour, bit of haze. Head is off-white, webbed lace but sticks to the glass. Looks nice.
Smells like banana esters, with some dry sweet spice, nutmeg and vanilla. Touch of raisin. Could have more richness and more robustness, but decent.
Taste is chocolatey. Dry cocoa with some toffee, sultanas and some dried orange peel. Not much spice; more fruit and lots of chocolate. Not bad.
Full body, nicely textured. Slightly dry on the back.
Nice beer; have had better spiced Winter seasonals though, generally better because of more spice.
Serving type: on-tap
