Qball's Beer Review: Winter's Bourbon Cask Ale

Winter's Bourbon Cask Ale

Brewed by:
Anheuser-Busch, Inc.
Missouri, United States

Style / ABV:
Winter Warmer / 6.00% ABV

Winter release. Serving types had: bottle (169), on-tap (76), growler (2). Brewed with all-imported hops and aged on Bourbon Oak Casks and whole Madagascare Vanilla Beans for a smooth Robust Taste.

Born on date: Dec 1, 2007

Review: While it seems that Anheuser-Busch is trying to broaden its market with this sweet bean brew, the Winter's Bourbon Cask Ale fails to deliver the taste wanted in a specialty brew. The color pours out as a foggy orange and the taste delivers a sweet candy sensation. Overall, this delivery had a malty vanilla taste and was a tough ale to finish.

Rating (1 recommended, 2 good, 3 on-the-fence, 4 disappointed, 5 stay away)
