This beer poured with a small, beige head. Beer color is a reddish brown. The aroma has a little citrus and is hoppier than I expected. There is also some caramel. The taste is malty, with caramel, spice, maybe a little fruit. Some hops come in at the end and bring a little bitterness. This is a milder, hoppier winter warmer - different, and I enjoyed it.
