Notes/Commercial Description:
This beer is retired; no longer brewed.

During even the coldest of weather, warm up to the smooth, robust taste of our Winter's Bourbon Cask Ale. Full of rich aromas that you find in the winter months, hints of vanilla and flavorful hops, this is a beer that is great for pouring into a large tulip glass and enjoying with friends around a fireplace.

Pours a nice golden amber color with good clarity with a tight eggshell head that has good longevity.

Aromas begin sweet and malty. I don't get much if any bourbon but there are vanilla and caramel notes.

The tastes begin much the same with prodominant sweetness highlighted again by the vanilla and caramel/toffee with lesser dark fruits.

Mouthfeel is medium to light in body with appropriately moderate carbonation.

Overall what you might expect from an A-B product. A mild-flavored beer that tries to make friends with everyone instead of attempting to really "wow" anyone. For being called a "bourbon cask ale", there is barely any hints of bourbon to speak of.
