The Second Beer o' Xmas 2012: Wasatch Winterfest

For the second Beer o' Xmas that the Beer Gnerd pushed on thee, it's Wasatch Winterfest!

This annual favorite pours a clear ruby color with a moderate fluffy off-white cap of foam. The nose is bright with citrus and pine with subtle spicy caramel malt beneath. The flavor starts out with grapefruity hops and a bit of orange zest. Next comes a faint hint of gingerbread then transitions to a rich maltiness. I think there may be a little roastiness in there as well. Very nicely balanced with a well hidden 7.1% abv.


Cheers!
