2° Below Winter Ale

12 oz bottle.
Bottle with ridge on the neck reminiscent of the Westy 12 bottle.
The appearance was a somewhat pedestrian, light amber but cloudy body, but the head and lace were very good. Some nice layered lace. A little light and clouded on the color but otherwise nice.
Nose and tastes are a satisfying combo of biscuit malts and a quite dry, bitter finish. I wouldn’t necessarily describe this an ESB that I would get terribly excited about, but what I would say is that this is an ESB that does remind me of some of the better, English style equivalents.
Quite tasty and as it warms it gets more fruit. Some grapefruit and a touch of citrus peel.
Interesting and tasty beer.
