Southern Tier Old Man Winter Ale
I ordered a pint of Souther Tier Old Man Winter Ale at Fathead's in Pittsburgh. The beer has an amber color with a lofty bubbly head. The aroma is slightly spicy and filled with orange hops. The taste is mostly hoppy at first with pine and orange hops. The taste then evolves to malty and caramel flavors with a solid base of raisin. The alcohol content is 7.2% ABV. I really enjoyed this beer, although I am not surprised as I am a big fan of Southern Tier beers. It is a solid winter warmer, and does not have an overpowering alcohol kick.
