Style: Winter Warmer

Brewery: Golden Valley Brewery & Pub website.

Country:  USA

Region:  McMinnville, Oregon

ABV: 8.0% Abv

How served: 12oz capped bomber poured into a Stone IPA glass.

My Overall Opinion:  Very Good. 

I paired this beer with: Snyder’s sourdough hard pretzels.

Tasted on:  Saturday October 2nd, 2010

Note:  This beer poured a deep amber with a finger and a half tan head which thinned quickly leaving almost no lacing in the glass.    The nose was sweet with malt and caramel and a hint of spicy hops.    The taste was sweet with caramel and malt notes and finished with some hop bitterness. The mouthfeel was of a medium body with some sharpness in the feel at the end    The drinkability was good as it had a mildly pleasant alcohol warmth which makes this a very good winter warmer.  This beer really improved as it warmed up in the glass.
