This is the perfect brew for the season! TIZ the season for these winter ales. Anyway the beer looks kinda of a caramel color and very inviting the smell is kinda light you can surely pick out the hops mixed with sweet malts for its finish. The mouthfeel is nice very balanced and it is an overall great beer for the season. Grab one while you can!

Poured from 12 oz. bottle into a Sam Adams perfect pint glass.

Appearance: Pours a deep and clear amber orange with lots of rising bubbles. Big five finger white foam head with very good retention and lots of lacing around the glass.

Smell: Sweet and bready aroma of biscuit malts with caramel, toffee, and wheat grains. Subtle hints of spices including cinnamon and ginger. Also some hints of oranges and some earthy hops in the background.

Taste: Lots of caramel and toffee malts up front giving a very bready and sweet taste. Subtle hints of the spices blend in with some notes of cinnamon and ginger. Also some citrus orange and a fairly noticeable presence of earthy hops in the finish.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with a carbonation on the higher side of medium. Crisp and very smooth.

Overall: A pretty solid winter bock. Has a nice hop presence for the style. Very well balanced.

The beer is crystal clear and copper / amber hued. The light beige head is an inch thick and leaves ample lacing on the pint glass. The primary scents are malt, holiday spices. Yams and/or pumpkin flavors along with some cinnamon and nutmeg. Slightly sweet with minimal bitterness. Light bodied, but not thin. Overall, a decent seasonal brew.
