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.

12 oz bottle with a 0034 date....that would be January 3, 2014. Not super fresh, but I think it'll work just fine.

A: Poured into a pint glass. Deep brown/red, clear beer. Lots of bubbles coming up the middle form a toffee colored head that's approximately one finger. It's dense with good retention.

S: Lots of malts and dark fruit on the nose. Bit of alcohol and spicy hops present as well. Pretty luscious fruit, actually. Decent smell.

T: Roasty, nutty malt flavor up front. Pick up some of those dark fruits in the middle. Ends with a slightly spicy hop note along with a metallic twang.

M: Really smooth and easy drinking. Carbonation isn't as abrasive as it looks. Medium body.

O: Reminds me of Lagunitas Censored, but less fruity and a bit more spicy. Pretty average red ale.
