Fireside Winter Ale
Fireside Winter Ale (Salt Spring Island)
Ratebeer 2.33 13th percentile
Beer Advocate C
The nose smells lightly of dark fruit, caramel and alcohol. There was a light, creamy mouthfeel with a hint of maple syrup and spice. The taste was quite light for a beer this strong. It's caramel backbone was a little weak. There was no hiding the alcohol burn/tingle.
It was lightly caramel sweet with a palate cleansing alcohol burn. It was very dry cider like.
Alcohol Content +1 7%
It burns like a bad urinary tract infection.
It was nice but not exciting.
Ingame Enhancement 0
No nothing; I'm done here.
It was a below average winter warmer. The caramel and spices were there, but just not enough.
