Never Summer Ale by Boulder Beer Company

Beer #325, only 40 more to go, is Never Summer Ale by Boulder Beer Company from Boulder, Colorado.  This Winter Warmer (I know…it is only autumn) has an ABV of 5.94%.

Appearance – Clear amber with a reddish tone with a off-white head.

Nose – Caramel malts, toasted bread…nothing else.

Taste – Very much like the nose…caramel and toast with a bit of a spicy, peppery flavor and pine hop thing near the back end.

Mouthfeel – Medium body, light carbonation, slight bitterness.

Overall – For a Winter Warmer…it didn’t warm me up at all.  I was expecting a bit more spice here and a bit more alcohol presence…something to remind me of winter and keep me warm on those long cold New Jersey winter nights.
