Weyerbacher Winter Ale
Considering Weyerbacher (Easton, PA) have a great reputation and an award winning track record for great beers such as "Tiny", "Merry Monk's" and their "Double Simcoe" I was eagerly anticipating their winter offering. I was very disappointed. Poured from a 12oz bottle from a six pack I found the pour lifeless and almost flat, with no discernable aroma or head. Taste I found bland and dry, not much going on here, a bit too smooth and thin for a winter warmer in my opinion, definetly missing something to liven it up. Perhaps a very slight chocolate finish but I would compare it more to a black lager more than anything. Sadly I can't recommend this one. 5.6% ABV.
