I thought that this beer was just average. Catchy name but the taste had a very basic winter lager taste. The draft at a local bar had it on tap and it was measurable better. Good head, little smoother and really good amber look. Taste still just ok.
slight bitter aftertaste and not enough body.

A - Pours a clear amber with a two finger foamy off white head. Light soapy lacing.

S - Aroma is caramel and toasted malts.

T - The taste is caramel, brown sugar, toasted malts and a light hoppy finish.

M - Medium body with medium carbonation. Creamy mouthfeel with a crisp dry finish.

O - A solid amber. A nice easy drinker.
