A: two finger thick off white head with nice retention and lacing on a brown with garnet hues hazy body.

S: lots of sweet caramel and toffee and even a chocolate note.

T: sweet caramel malt and spices up front with a chocolate and semi dry coffee note to the finish. Fairly complex for the style.

M: medium to full body and moderate to high carbonation.

Overall: This one is actually very good and surprisingly complex. The semi dry finish hurts the mouthfeel but a nice brew overall.

A - A nice deep brown hue with slight ruby highlights and a slightly opaque head. Pretty sticky lacing is a nice looking winter warmer.

S - No real spices just some caramel malts, sweet sugars, and toffee.

T - I had no idea this was a red ale but as a winter ale it was very malt forward with sweet toffee and caramel aspects. Not too overly sweet and the hops take a back seat.

M - Medium it drank pretty much around it's ABV.

Overall a pretty sweet red ale, much bigger and bolder than Yuengling but noting that really stands out amongst other winter warmers. Decent beer though.
