Beer Review# 15
Granville Island Breweries
Appearance: Dark red and clear, like strong tea.
Smells sweet, but cant identify exactly,
Taste: Sweet, like flat root beer, lots of vanilla, some cinnamon,and
spices. Super low on bitterness. Makes me think of chirstmas
or a cold winter's day.
Mouthfeel: So subtlety soft carbonation,still tastes of vanilla, and not
bitter at all. Very mellow, with good weight.
Beer Type: Winter warmers are meant to be sweet, not bitter, well balanced
and can be very boozy. This one fits the bill very well but i think
they could of added a little more to alcohol level to really warm
up the beer.
Drinkability: Strong flavor, and slight weight of this beer will limit it quantities of
this one I could drink at one time, but for the intended style I think
it is really great.
Scoring: 20/25 These beer are worth the cost.(in this case its not much on the
expensive side). Good to share and drink for flavor.
