Berghoff Winter Ale

This beer appears to be now called simply “Berghoff Winter Ale”.
12 oz single, thanks go out to Kevin for the chance to try this.
Pour is a very attractive, dark maroon color with a decent head and some nice lace. There is excellent clarity on the pour, and to be honest the beer looks really nice and inviting in the glass.
Nose is somewhat muted, and gives very little even on warming. A little bit of alcohol and perhaps a buttered toast whiff.
Tastes are fairly neutral but revolve around light toffee and caramel and not much else. Very little depth here and quite a thin beer in the mouth.
I could see this being a really nice beer with some work. If we could get some more depth to the caramel malts and tastes, or perhaps convert to a true Winter Warmer with some spices, we would have a half-decent offering from this “budget” brewer. For now though, it’s a little below par. Unoffensive but not quite there, either.
