Snow Cap Ale, a Winter Warmer by Pyramid Brewing Company.

22 ounce bottle served in shaker glass. 7% alcohol by volume. $2.79 per bottle at Fred Meyer.


The pour delivers a brown body with a reddish-brown aura and tan head, which quickly departs.

The nose is mostly beef broth with a hint of floral.

The flavor is beef broth, candied sugar, ginger (I checked it against The Wife's spice rack), other spices (although none too powerful), and dark malts.

The mouthfeel is medium-heavy, but not thick or oily.

This is a good, solid beer at an inexpensive price. For what it's worth, it's a good beer. It's not showy or over-the-top, but it is a good option for a meat-and-potato dinner (or stew!).
