Alaskan Winter

CIMG6684

Despite having this beer many times in the past, I’ve never reviewed it. No idea why. This is actually referred to as an Old Ale, not a Winter Warmer, but let’s not get carried away with the style guidelines. Oh, and this brew has Spruce tips. I’ll let them tell you all about that below.

Stats:
Old Ale. 6.4% ABV. Alaska. Winter Seasonal.

Light orange color. Head fades really quickly.

The nose is really sweet smelling. Almost a cotton candy smell with a hint of citrus and malt.

Mouthfeel is solid. Lots of body with highish carbonation.

The palate also tastes like cotton candy with a hint of orange and vanilla. Little bit of malty-ness with an almond characteristic that sticks on the palate.

Not a bad beer, but it’s oddly sweet and sugary tasting which doesn’t make it a favorite for me. 86 points.
