Alaskan Winter Ale Brewed with Spruce Tips

Traditional English old ales are quite full and malty, and this adheres closely to that style thanks to a round, lush mouthfeel, creamy texture and moderate alcohol. The addition of Sitka spruce tips, as well as Pacific Northwest and European hops, add interesting layers of aroma and flavor; they lift the sweet-malt scents on the nose and weight of the palate, with tones of pine resin, citrus oil and, of course, spruce. As we say goodbye to winter, it's a sweet companion for the remaining chilly nights. Lauren Buzzeo
