Description:"Deep mahogany in color, our full-bodied winter warmer is brewed in the spirit of British winter ales. Crafted with a flurry of roasted chocolate and caramel malts, and generously hopped, it delivers a smooth finish that makes this beer the perfect cold weather companion." — Pyramid Breweries
Random thoughts: This is the second of my winter seasonal reviews. I have about 10 more in my fridge, so I have some work (if you can call it that) to do. Now that the weather is getting cold and rainy, I'm more inclined to drink these darker beers.
The tasting: Poured a dark brownish orange with a tan head that dissipated slowly, with some lacing. Aroma is mostly roasted malts with a touch of hops. Flavor is caramel malts with a very mild hop bitterness. Although it's 7.0% ABV, it doesn't leave a strong alcohol taste. Body is light to medium. I was expecting something with a fuller body. It's very drinkable, and I'd even call this a session beer (which is unusual for a winter seasonal, in my humble opinion).
Rating: 4 star.Really Good. I want this again! Snow Cap was a nice surprise. Give it a try if you want a winter seasonal that's not too heavy.
Have you tried Snow Cap or any other winter seasonals? I'd appreciate some recommendations!
