Availability: Winter

Notes/Commercial Description:
Settle in with Wisconsin's Snowshoe Ale. This beer is brewed with a blend of American and German malts. We also infuse generous amounts of hops from Slovenia and the Great Pacific Northwest to add a special note of warmth for your winter evening's enjoyment.

Expect this beer to be a beautiful copper-red, with a fruity ale body and a spiced hop finish. Then sit back and rejoice in the season because it's these Wisconsin winters that keep the whiners out.

This poured a malty caramel-amber with generous foam. There’s a caramel malt aroma with some chocolate notes. I'm getting mostly caramel on the palate too, with a caramelized sugar and a bitter bite to give it definition. Too much caramel. And too many bottles of this in my 12-pack sampler too. Meh.

poured 12oz bottle into snifter. Odd to drink this in July, but the temp is only in the 50's today!

A - Nice deep brown amber color with a foamy 2 finger cracker colored head. Good lacing and a thin collar on my glass.

S - A slight fruity scent from the PNW hops. Plenty of malt similar to a Marzen and Amber mix. Bready and some caramel along with a touch of floral hops.

T - A nice, slightly fruit flavor up front that transcends into a bready, caramel, and malt mix. Really is like an Amber and Marzen mix with delicate hops. Just a touch of spice on the finish.

M - Medium body with moderate carbonation. Smooth and rich, yet easy to drink.

O - Interesting Amber style that has fruity notes from the hops and a Marzen quality from the German malts. Glad I picked one up to try.
