Mistletoe Bliss, Lazy Boy Brewing, Everett Washington
This is my first Lazy Boy beer. It is a brown ale, on the hefty side. The website states that it is 7.5% and brewed with Pale, Crystal, Munich, Brown, Vienna, & Chocolate malts and with Ahtanum hops....
It pours a deep reddish hue with a big foamy head.
The aroma is malt, spruce and a hop earthiness.
It has a medium body and very malt forward. It is sweet and becomes creamy as it warms. There is mild hop, but it is below the vanilla sweet that becomes more dominant as it is enjoyed.
The aftertaste is biscuity malt. It is very drinkable. Available in the 22 oz bottles, it disappeared quite quickly one fine evening!
