Never Summer Ale

never_summer_ale

The winter seasonal from the Boulder Brewing Company is a Strong Ale named Never Summer Ale.  The nose is a bit hoppy, with the predominate scent being pine.  The middle, however, is malty, with sweet caramel and a finish that’s balanced, but leaning slightly back towards the hoppy side with some trailing bitterness.   I’d say that this is actually a winter beer that’s going to appeal more to the folks (like me) who are hop fans.   A good solid effort from the folks in Colorado.

I give it a 3.9 out of 5.
