THIS IS (WAS) THE BEST SCOTTISH ALE TO HIT THE SHELVES OF PA. Long Trail brewery discontinued making this beer. Very unwise decision. R.I.P. Long Trail Hibernater

I liked this alot, it is everything I want from a "winter brew". If I was a bear, this is what I would stock my cave with for the winter.

A winter ale flavored with honey. It is a perfect amber jewel with a creamy, rocky off-white head. The aroma is moderately malty with caramel, pine, and earth. The flavor is fresh pear that's well bittered (30 IBU?) with pine trees. The texture is a bit oily and the finish is short and dry from the honey. This has been my default session beer since moving back to the Eastern US.
