Notes/Commercial Description:
SNOW MELT WINTER WARMER DEBUT:
The first day of Winter is December 21st, but we can start melting the frost sooner than that - time for the first East End Winter Warmer - or should I say AMERICAN Winter Warmer. SNOW MELT is a Mahogany-red ale with a unique malt character, and a bright pine-ey hop flavor, unusual for a beer of this style, but seasonally appropriate none the less.Clocking in at 7% and guaranteed to clear the fog from your glasses, this one's debuting at Growler Hours next week (Dec 14th), and you can keep an eye out for it around town shortly after that.

A delicious winter warmer. A not too thick dark ale with a nice hoppy center with an xtra alcohol kick to warm you up when it is snowing in late March. And in the burgh...it is snowing in late March.

With it's lighter viscosity than a Guinness or other heavy porters and stouts,it can be an enjoyable brew for even those that steer away from the standard dark ale.

On cask at the Piper pub the other day.

The beer pours fairly dark, reddish brown color with surprisingly good head retention and lacing. The nose is attraactive as well, as I pick up considerable sweet malt, toffee, tea, light smoke and hint of ginger. The flavor profile replicates the nose in this easy drinking, moderately sweet beer. Mouthfeel if medium bodied, with a soft, slightly creamy finish. I really think the cask conditioning works well with this beer. Alcohol is well integrated into the flavor profile, and so drinkability is pretty high.

Really enjoyed this well made beer from East End.
