Our Special Ale 2019
Anchor's Our Special Ale 2019 is the forty-fifth annual beer brewed to celebrate joy and the newness of life. The label on this year's Winter Warmer features Thuja plicata, a western arborvitae, this particular one an evergreen conifer native to Northern California. 6.9% alcohol.
Deep reddish brown color. Aroma features lots of pine and caramel with some licorice and dark fruits. Very hoppy, very piney, even minty. Caramel, some spiciness, and a little medicine-like, which I didn't love. Different, interesting, give it a shot.
