Winter Ale (Rivertown Brewing Company)

Winter Ale is a bold flavored beer that has hints of ginger, cinnamon, and various spice and dark fruit elements. The beer is able to hide the alcohol content (8.2% ABV) incredibly well, allowing imbibers to have a heady feeling while having their taste buds tantalized. The beer opens up nicely, with a little more malty of elements becoming commonplace as the sweeter and more sugary elements move to the periphery. Rivertown’s Winter Ale is able to have a warming feel to it that is perfect fOr these frigid winter nights, while straddling the line well between sweet and heavy. Each subsequent sip of this Winter Ale showcases a different set of flavors, hints, and notes – one quaff may make the ginger side of the beer present, while another may make sugar or malt elements available. Overall, this is an effort that we will continue to come back to, no matter what the weather may be outside – there are enough twists and turns here that individuals will be able to enjoy it no matter how often they have drained a bottle.upload_B3c8ys-medium
