Boulder Beer Company - Never Summer Ale

Purchased From: Harvest Fine Wines & Spirits
Serving Type: 12 oz. bottle, poured into a pint glass

Never Summer Ale, the hinting, but slightly deceptive name packs a significant and tasty Winter Warmer. It pours a clear and glowing red-amber body with hints of glowing brown. The head is large and creamy with excellent retention and lacing. Caramel and hints of cinnamon come across up front on the nose, followed shortly by dry hops and biscuity malts.

Brown sugar sweetness is prominent off the bat with a creamy mouthfeel and a minor vanilla extract tinge. The body is slightly woody and earthy with a subtle spiciness combined with roasted chestnuts. The rich and deep character slowly fades to a dry finish with a condensed tightness that carries a slight bitterness.

Final Verdict: B+
