COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Pull on your wool socks and crack open a 2° Below Ale. This tasty winter warmer started life as a small batch beer brewed for the Al Johnson Uphill Downhill – a telemark ski race in Crested Butte, Colorado. The Uphill Downhill celebrates the exploits of Al Johnson, letter carrier extraordinaire, who delivered mail by ski in the late 1800’s. Dry hopping during fermentation creates a floral nose with a hint of pepper and spicy, subtle undertones. 2° Below provides a bright, hoppy palate and a cheery warm afterglow.

A very tasty winter warmer with a nice citrus and hoppy aroma. Delicious color and flavor. Love the citrus!

Bottle, not a fan. Just odd. Part of the holiday pack. Overall unimpressed. Oh well.

The aroma is of spices, pepper, and citrus hops. It is golden in color with a white thick head. It has a lively taste with plenty of spices and pepper. It has quite a zesty bite on the way down.

Elwood (3336) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - DEC 16, 2013
Serving: 12 oz. bottle from Wegmans Leesburg. It pours a clear amber color with a slight off white head. Light nose with a hint of malt and grain. Light florals as it warms. The flavor is mostly caramel and malt. Don’t get much hop wise. Easy to drink.

12 oz bottle. Pours a clear amber with a frothy ivory head. Thick lacing. Aroma of grains, toffee, and sweet malts. Very malty with a slight peppery spice. Pretty blah.

from a bottle, pours a medium orange with a small head. very clear. could taste the pepper with maybe a little bit of spice. Overall not a bad beer. Not real hoppy.

Nice change of pace. Definitely get the spicy peppery taste which goes down surprisingly smooth. I probably wouldn't purchase again but I would have one if available ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle. Pours a crystal clear dark golden color with a moderate white head on it. Nose actually has some grains in there and just a hint of pepper, but not much else for me. Taste is quite malty to me, slightly toasty and somewhat earthy. Almost just a bit of toffee, too. Not a bad drink.
