Massachusetts

3.35/5  rDev -4.8%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

Sufficeint lacing with a somewhat murky rusty brown hue.

Spicy fruity ester aroma with buttery diacetyl.

Slick and creamy mouth feel, lacking crispness and a medium body make it full on the palate. Quite malty with undertones of chocolate and toasted biscuit. Light handful of spicy hop with light esters and diacetyl in the back.

A decent ale, nothing earth shattering and a bit of a let down for a winter seasonal as it is not very warming.

Serving type: bottle

3.05/5  rDev -13.4%
look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

Presentation: 500ml custon Young's bottle. No freshness date.

Appearance: Dark copper with a super rocky, clingy, off-white head that sticks to the glass. Excellent head retention.

Smell: Big fruity ester nose with bready/yeast aromas and raw hop leafiness.

Taste: Medium to full mouthfeel. Sweetness is super dextrinous. There's also an almost pear like fruity sweetness and coarseness in following. Actually it's very pear like in character, followed by a touch of caramel/toffee malt sweetness that doesn't last that long. Hop twang bitterness about midway through. Gets a bit bready/yeasty, then dry towards the finish. Hop is raw, leafy. More bready/yeasty flavours in the finish. Odd aftertaste.

Notes: Very English in taste, but not very impressive if compared to other Winter Warmers or Young's other brews. Yeasty all over, and not at all warming.

Serving type: bottle
