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

Reddish brown, clear with a thin head. Smells clean, a bit of sweet lemon cookies. Thin mouthfeel. Taste is not overwhelming and includes winter spices (nutmeg, ginger). Hop character is light, with equal parts piney and citrus flavours. Faint strawberry on the back of the tongue. Not as thick and spiced as other winter beers, and therefore more refreshing.
Overall I'd say it's a nice beer, I'd have it again.
