Winter Warmer. A rich, full-bodied winter warmer crafted in the British tradition of holiday beers. This deep mahogany colored brew balances complex fruit flavors with a refreshingly smooth texture.

Pours a deep ruby red with nice head and lacing. Aroma is moderately hoppy with a light ginger and spruce aroma. The flavor is moderately acidic with some notes of hops. The finish is mildy anticeptic but refined.

OK first sighting of this classic NW winter brew! Pretty nice warm malty aroma..can detect the EKG hops also but faint. Most attractive looking beer. mahogany..but more like garnet when held to the light..small tan head..that didnt last long. Nice smooth malty beer..thena pleasant bitter "kick" just before it goes down the throat..pleasant warming from the alcohol down to the stomach. This is an excellent smooth winter beer on the palate..quite a drinkable beer for 7.0%..best thing Pyramid does IMO.

UPDATED: OCT 23, 2003 Sweetish smell, little in the way of head. Lot of subtle, sweet malty flavor with a nice warming alchohol kick in the end. This stuff is really good, just give it a chance to warm up a little bit...

UPDATED: SEP 25, 2003 Christmas 2002 12oz. bottle. Picked up one of two 12packs left that had been sitting in a small local drugstore's cooler for at least 6 months. I'm not a huge fan of pyramid beers, but I heard great things about this one. Upon leaving the drugstore I had my reservations. But boy how was I wrong. I think the 10 months of mellowing did this beer justice. This one pours a deep, rich auburn brown with a tight tan head that lingers nicely. Aromas are very complex. Some of you would have a heyday describing the nose of this beer. Flavors are that of a fine English strong ale. Very well balanced and smooth with well hidden alcohol. Finishes clean and somewhat dry. Very good beer.

Dark red brown color with nice head and good lacing, medium bodied. Roasted malt the primary aroma, but nad hints of blackberries and honey. Good balance between the sweet malting and northeastern hops, nice twang during the aftertaste. Very nice.

Ack. Looks like a glass of Diet Rite. Very bitter and the alcohol is well-hidden. Extremely malty, though I wouldn't call it a barleywine. Lingering bitterness on the tongue that sticks around like a bad cold.

What an excellent brew. Great creamy head and full of flavor. Truely the favorite of us Pacific Northwesteners. God, I love Snow Cap!

1997 bottle drank in 2000. Deep brown liquid with good head. Nice malty aroma with some spice hints. Smooth and not too thick texture. Good sweet flavor with a twinge of roast. Nice beer.
