Sierra Nevada Brewing (Chico, CA)
"In times of old, no holiday feast was complete without a tankard of spiced ale served next to a roaring fire. That’s a tradition we’d like to see continue (tankard optional) with our Wintertide Ale. Brewed with rich caramel-like malts and a hint of coriander, cinnamon, nutmeg and ginger, Wintertide is reminiscent of mom’s favorite holiday cookies."
Seasonal Winter Warmer. Available in the seasonal "Snowpack".
Not that I was expecting a "bad" beer from Sierra Nevada, but I always hold my breath with flavored beers. No worries! There is nothing I don't like about this brew.
A tasty combination of chocolate-caramel and delicate spiciness. My first beer out of this variety pack and based on this beer alone I see a few more 12's in my very near future,
