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.

Draught, Billygoat Tavern, Mt. Shasta, CA
Golden-amber colour. Fresh, spicy hop (Mt Hood?...guess I was wrong there...I’m stunned...) character with hints of breadcrust. Light character - an amber with hints of caramel and the same spicy hop. Decent if unadventurous brew, complemented a corned beef sandwich well, too, when the food came.

bhensonb (10950) - Woodland, California, USA - DEC 10, 2006
Pine/citrus aroma. Clean aroma. Amber color with vigorous off-white head. Starts with strong flavor - sort of cedar/juniper. Don’t know where the pine/citrus went. Medium mouthfeel, thins on swishing. About the middle there is a warm, pepper impression. Never had anything like this. The "pepper" sort of takes the place of hop, though there is detectable bitterness. Ends with a bit of sweetness struggling against everything else. Which may indicate balance. Unique. Good stuff. There’s a bit of lacing as well.
