4.24/5 rDev +11.6%
A: Darkish ruby amber, almost clear with a dissipated off white head.
S: Initially onions but it soon gives way to floral hops, English in character.
T: In the mouth the hops tastes more American with that classic orange peel profile but overall it drinks like an English bitter. Nice and sharp with an astute malt backbone which leaves a nice aftertaste, again reminiscent of English bitter. Too sharp for a session beer but on cask would be a different story.
M: Sharp and prickly. It's got heartburn written all over it.
O: Very nice. I'd love to try it on cask.

Lovely deep red color, very clear, Nice 2 finger head, very persistent with sticky lacing all the way to the bottom of the glass
Aroma is light, biscuit, floral and spice
Taste is bold, hops, winter spice, citrus, caramel malts
Mouthfeel is thick and creamy.
Basically a red IPA with some tweaks, nicely bitter with more significant body than I expected. Visually gorgeous, a bit thin on aroma. One of the better Widdy brews I've come across the past few years.

Great beer overall, as would be expected from a brewery such as Widmer Bros. Prototypical flavors abound for the style, malts, vanilla, caramel, some winter spices, with undertones of hops (west coast) and booze carried throughout. Beautiful nose too.

Poured from a bottle into pint glass.
Appearance: Dark amber, with nice thick and light colored head. The head lasted a very long time, and left a nice coating on the inside of the glass.
Smell: Pleasant, with a strong hops bitterness in the aroma. There is some citrus, herbs, and spicy aromas, but the hops dominate.
Taste: A nice mix of hops, citrus, malt, and spicy flavors, that make for an interesting and complex drink. Drinks much like a Pale Ale. The label lists caramel and chocolate matls, but the hops dominate this beer. There is a nice after-taste, that lasts for a while but not too long.
Mouthfeel: Smooth and crisp, with a medium body.
Overall: This is an interesting Winter Ale. Not what I was expecting, but good.
