Our Special Ale 2018
Merry Christmas! Anchor Brewing for the 44th time brewed its Winter Warmer Our Special Ale. Here is a history of their labels throughout the years, very cool! This year's unique tree is the Korean Pine (Pinus koraiensis), native to North and South Korea and a symbol of peace. It also thrives in botanical gardens near the brewery. 6.9% alcohol.
Rich aroma, full of sweet caramel, honey and nutmeg. Similar flavors, showcasing caramel, honey and nutmeg. Toasty and herbal with a creamy texture. Sweet though there is a hoppy bitter answer. It could be the Christmas tree theme but hints of pine linger. Decent beer.
