Ebenezer Ale

This is a beer that I have been wanting to try for a number of years now, and although Bridgeport has been in GA for a number of years, this is the first year that this seasonal has made it here.
12oz bottle, Taco Mac, Marietta, GA, USA.
Murky brown pour with a decent, high pitted head with good lace and retention. The color isn’t inspiring but nevertheless it looks pretty good in the glass after an agressive pour.
A malty brew, this reminds me much more of an English ESB and the moniker of Winter Warmer is pretty misleading. I get very little spice at all, and the beer reminds me much more of an English Strong Ale than much else. Not really a seasonal or Winter feel about the beer at all. Plenty of simple malts against a light hop background.
I enjoyed drinking this very much, and the mouthfeel, ABV and other attributes are nicely balanced. However, if you are looking for a classic Winter Warmer I think you may be disappointed. On the other hand take it for what it is and enjoy it.
