12 oz bottle into a pilsner glass.
A - Soapy 2-finger head is eggshell in color, leaves a small amount of lacing. Color is a deep amber, moderately opaque. Fine effervescence seen.
S - Tree sap and mild roasted malts. Slightly sweet, hints of caramel and maple syrup.
T - Big malty flavor, flavors like maple oatmeal, finish is sweet and very drawn out and tastes mildly of German hops.
M - Crisp, but feels bigger than I was expecting. Good carbonation keeps it from being too heavy.
D - Though not particularly complex, the flavors are well-balanced and definitely capture the spirit of the winter. A good after-work beer for the colder months.
