96. Smuttynose Winter Ale
Snuttynose is quickly becoming one of my favorite brewers. I have yet to have a bad beer from Smuttynose and some of them end up on my top list. I have not started my top Winter seasonals yet but this will certainly be on it. Nice dark color with tan head that leaves a nice lacing on the glass. Aroma is sweet with some malt and hops in there. Taste is smooth with plenty of sweetness but very well balanced. This would be a great session beer and another solid offering from Smuttynose.
Pros: Color, smooth easy to drink
Alcohol Content: 5.1% ABV
IBU (Bitterness): ??

Warming, mellow & pleasantly complex, Smuttynose Winter Ale is your perfect cold weather companion. Available in sixpacks and on draft from late October through February.
