Review: Alaskan Brewing Company Winter Ale

Review: Alaskan Brewing Company Winter Ale

alaskaAlaskan’s Winter Ale is brewed with spruce tips plus a selection of specialty malts and hops. The beer is sweeter than you’d think, think less evergreen and more winter spice mix — cinnamon, cloves, and ginger. Very heavy with malt, it’s quite sweet and it leaves behind a lengthy, sugary finish before fading out with the aid of a delicate dusting of hops.

Stylistically, it’s not my favorite, but considering it’s been made for 15 years running, it surely has a fan or two out there.
