Poured from the bottle into a Samuel Adams laser-etched glass.
Review from notes: December 15th, 2013.

A: Dark amber, thin white head.

S: Sweetness and hops.

T: Like a lightweight APA. Not bad.

M: Thin, very easy to drink. Very light on carbonation.

O: Not bad. I'm not a fan of hoppy beers, but this was a nice departure from typically heavy and spice-loaded winter brews.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

12 ounce bottle poured into a pint glass

Appearance/ Semi transparent medium amber in color. 2full fingers of light tan foam which dissipates to a thin froth after several minutes however leaving nice lacing. Nice carbonation.

Aroma / Floral, piney hops. Sweet and pleasant.

Taste / Fresh baked bread. Nice hop load but not overwhelming.

Mouth Feel / Very smooth and kind of creamy. Medium bodied with a nice smooth finish.

Overall/ This was a very good beer more to the hoppy than malty side. It was a nice beer to enjoy slowly by the fireplace.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

Appearance was a burnt copper color capped with a small white head. The head reduced to a thin ring with minimal lacing. This had a nice balance between the hops and malts. The finish was slightly dry and bitter. I did not pick up a lot of spices that are usually found in a winter warmer. It reminded me more of a red IPA. Nice beer on a winter night.
