Telegraph Winter Ale

I have one more Napa post to come, as well as the Rhone Rangers tasting and the Santa Barbara trip, but I needed a break from the seriously long updates to bring you something completley different. Monty Python would be proud.

Here we have a very solid California beer maker who has yet to dissapoint me. This beer is a left over from the 'winter' season, with a very spiced character of orange, cinamon, nut meg and a little pine. This is very balanced and smooth with beautiful carbonation. The spicing is done perfectly, which is actually quite a difficult feat as many lesser winter or xmas ales can attest to. Complex, unique, and a perfect seasonal treat - when that time comes around again!

Very Good+
$8/650ml at CityBeer
