What I'm Drinking Tonight

Deschutes Jubelale. This is the 2007 version. Last year was the first opportunity I had to have this beer from a brewery I very much like and I enjoyed it very much. Somehow this year's version just didn't seem to impress me the way last year's did. That version I remember as more fruity, toasty and/or roasty, and a bit of berries in there as it warmed up. The 2007 version is largely toasty malt on a much thinner than anticipated body. Supposedly generously hopped though I didn't get that sense, other than it did balance it out a bit, but nothing extraordinary. Not a bad tasting beer, but a seasonal "Winter warmer?"
