The first of the 2008/2009 winter beers to go on the blog, Alaskan Winter Ale comes to us from our friends over at Alaskan Brewing Company. I have been a big fan of these folks for some time and they didn’t let me down with this seasonal offer. The beer pours a dark amber color, has a clean and refreshing nose, and gives you a little bit of the spruce right at the beginning. This subsides as the beer sits for a bit, but I swear it was there. A standard body and easy, smooth, and mildly complex finish make this a very drinkable beer.
