COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Never Summer Ale is a bold new look at winter beers: gutsy, full-bodied and an aggressive fusion of secret spices. Like the first run of the day, this ale is deep and clean, crisp and drinkable, perfectly blended for a smooth ride...through the Looking Glass. Grains: British Dark Caramel Malt, U.S. 2-row Barley. Hops: Nugget, Willamette, Cascade and Top-Secret Brewmaster's Spice.

It is a nice light winter beer with a mold favor and a very smooth finish that doesn't leave much taste on your pallet. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Apperance - A very nice golden red Aroma- A caramel hoppy bouquet T/P - A distinct malty hoppy flavor slight spice bite to it Tends to linger little too long with a bitter after taste Overall- Not bad a little too hoppy for my liking, but if you like that then it would be for you.

Bottle. Floral hoppy aroma with a slight earthiness. Pours reddish amber with very little head. Taste is smooth caramel malt to start with some earthiness to it. Finishes very dry with a fairly bitter finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
