Brooklyn Winter Ale

12oz bottle as a single from Green’s on Ponce, Atlanta, GA, USA. $1.50.
Best before April 2008 notched on the label – it’s now October 2008 but I doubt that it will matter much.
I MUCH prefer this beer as the old recipe i.e. as a Winter Warmer, and although I DO like the Scottish Ale style, I don’t think that this beer is a good as it was prior to the recipe change.
Head is poor and does not last long. No lace.
Nice, dark copper color but average clarity. Malty tastes are still big, and to be honest it reminds me of the original beer but without the spices. A few dry sherry notes in the aftertaste.
I DO like this, but that just goes to show how much I liked the other brew.
