COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This unique seasonal beer offers the warmth of an old English pub to help ward off the chill of a winter’s night. It has its origins in British neighborhood pubs where villagers would gather to shake off the damp cold of the bitter English winter. They’d share a pint or two of winter warmer ale by the fire, catch up on local gossip, and stay inside, where it was warm. We’ve brewed our version in the tradition of those winter ales, with a robust, full-bodied flavor and a tangy hint of spices.

Pour moderate brown, a bit darker than most ales, with a finger to two of light brown head. Taste is of roasted malt with a tinge of hops and spices. Palate is that of an ale, no extra thickness for winter. A consistent beer, no suprises, pleasant. Worth trying, but I wouldn’t drink more than one.
