Wizard’s Winter Ale

12 oz single.
Murky. mid-brown/orange pour that creates some head but not much lace.
Nose offers a malty fruit base that adds a little bitterness that is reminiscent of grapefruit, but to be honest it’s not a grapefruit taste that one normally associates with a high hop profile.
Similar things happen in the taste, where the slightly bitter grapefruit sits on the fruity end of the spectrum rather than the hop end of the scale.
As the paragraphs above would suggest, the beer is really quite fruity and only has a a hint of bitterness in the finish. Winter Warmer? I dunno, this seem quite malty and English in its taste and doesn’t deliver any spice notes at all.
OK, but not a lot more.
