Snow Day Winter Ale

New Belguim Brewing (Ft. Collins, CO)
"Pleasantly hoppy, Snow Day carries the subtle chocolate and caramel flavors of a new brewing malt known as Midnight Wheat. The Styrian Golding, Centennial and Cascade hops bring the backbone of hoppy bitterness to complement the roasty undertones. This beer is the deep garnet of a roasted walnut and presents a creamy tan head, floating artfully atop. Snow Day is bold and hoppy, drinkable and strong. It reminds you to enjoy the unexpected."

Roasted malt, some sweet chocolate with faint citrus in the back. Surprisingly light and drinkable ... not nearly as bold as I was expecting.
