2018 Advent Beer Review

Beer: Archor Brewing - Our Special Ale
Style: Special Ale

"This is the forty-forth annual Our Special Ale from the brewers at
Anchor. It is sold only from early November to mid-January. The
Ale's recipe is different every year, as is the hand-drawn tree on
the label, but the intent with which we offer it remains the same.
Joy and celebration of the newness of life." Our Special Ale
The label for this beer is quite festive. The large tree on the
front and the parchment style paper really put me in the mood for
Christmas. Likewise, the beer inside doesn't disappoint! There have
been some sort of peppers added that make it tingle with spiciness.
The overall flavor is hard to pin down but it tastes like there are
some floral or botanical notes. It's a unique beer that's really fun
- Would I buy it again? I can't wait to try next year's batch!
- How much could I drink in one night? A 22oz bomber.
