Poured a really nice copper color. Smelled really nice, got some spice and malt in there. When I tasted it I was rather discouraged. Pretty basic. It was very grainy tasting which caught me off guard a little hoppy, with a slight bitter taste at the end. Mouthfeel was very smooth, a medium feel for sure. Very easy to drink and pretty refreshing. I let it warm a bit and it definitely started to taste a little bit better, I started getting a little more malt and more complex flavors which I was expecting from the initial smell. Overall I was a little disappointed, I expected it to be a bit better. Not a bad winter ale at all, but nothing to write home about and wouldn't buy again.
