Don't know what makes this a "Winter Warmer" and not just another of a multitude of medium brews.

One New Year's resolution was to apply more brevity in all things. Here goes:

Promising medium root beer color.

Lackluster, medium bodied malty taste. No spices. Nothing "Christmasy" about it.

Aftertaste is soapy.

I could drink this all night long if there was a sudden mass departure of about a thousand other mediocre beers.

Nice label.

A: Bright, clear copper color. Poured a 3 finger tan head with good retention to 1 finger. Laced in wide rings.

S: Caramel and bread. Faint floral hop character. Hay and grass. Toffee and chocolate as the beer warms.

T: Bolder than the nose with caramel and dark malt flavors coming through. A little floral resiny hop character in the middle. Finishes bitter, dry and little warm.

M: Light to medium body. Moderate carbonation. A surprising balance without being sharply bitter. Dry and slightly warm.

D: Flavorful and very drinkable. Don't know the ABV, but its not formidable.
