Coaster Critique: Peak Organic Winter Session Ale

On the Fourth day of Beermas…..

Name: Winter Session Ale

Brewed by: Peak Organic Brewing

ABV: 5%

Bottle/Draft: 12oz Bottle

Purchased: Burby and Bates, Orono, Maine

Pours a deep reddish-copper color, very clear in the glass, produced a short white head.

Smells very hop forward, nice floral, citrusy aroma. Picked up some toasted malt through the hops.

Taste is malty up front, toasted grains and some wheat. The hops follow close behind; there is a pleasant citrus, tropical fruit flavor, some pine notes. The bitterness is real easy on the palate, nice balance in this beer.

Overall a really drinkable beer, nice malt profile, fragrant and flavorful hops and at 5% ABV this is a beer you can enjoy a couple of without losing your head.
