Hangar 24 Winter Warmer
From Hangar 24 – This is a one-of-a kind beer brewed for the “cool” months of the Southern California winter. We blend together locally harvested spruce tips from Angelus Oaks, maple syrup from Wisconsin and cinnamon from Saigon in just the perfect amounts to complement each other. The base beer has a nice rich flavor of malt and caramel which combines with the spices for a very well balanced and delicious beer.

Appearance: Pours a murky dark copper with no real head to speak of.
Aroma: Sweet, fruity malt and spices.
Taste: Sweet cinnamon, spruce, caramel and booze.
Mouthfeel: Slightly syrupy.
Overall: A solid rendition of a malty spicy holiday ale. For whatever reason, the alcohol content creeped up on me, so be careful with this one.
