The Brrr is a decent beer. Starts slightly sweet then finishes bitter. The beer poured a nice amber with white head that is leaving a spotty lace. The beer is hoppier than expected and the bitterness at the end is no overly positive. The mouthfeel is medium in body with decent carbonation. Overall its solid and worth a try.

I was pleasantly surprised by the hoppiness. Imagine your typical winter beer with the hop presence of an Northwest pale ale. Very clean flavor, well-balanced, decently carbonated with a medium body. Predominant taste and aromas are Northwest hops (citrus aroma and flavor), Malty caramel taste, alcohol.
Over all this is a pretty decent beer. I wouldn't go out of my way for it, but I'm glad I tried it and would definitely take it if it were offered to me.
