Deep copper in colour, this seasonal favourite pours with a medium layer of off-white head. With less than average carbonation evident, the head dissipates quickly leaving a ring of bubbles and some lacing. Distinct spice notes and a strong malty character dominate the aroma with hints of orange peel, honey, and raisins adding a nice complexity.
Beginning slightly sweet with a strong bready-malts, the flavour features distinct but not overwhelming spice notes of cinnamon, ginger, and cloves. Orange peel and raisins give it a touch of fruit tartiness with honey and leafy hops offering a good balance for the rich flavours. GLB’s Winter Ale has a medium, somewhat sticky or soapy body with average to low carbonation and a lingering spicy aftertaste.
Winter Ale is great for a snowy winter’s night!
So Day 2 was another success, props to GLB for a tasty seasonal I will be sure to seek out again. Come back tomorrow after 7pm EST to see the next instalment!
