A-B’s Winter’s Bourbon Cask Ale

A few months back I’d blogged about Anheuser-Busch brewing a seasonal pumpkin ale. Now they have a winter offering, too: Winter’s Bourbon Cask Ale. Yes, that link is to their press release, and yes, it’s been out since December somtime, but one of their PR people sent me the link on my contact form, so I decided to blog it.

And frankly, it doesn’t sound like a bad beer:

Brewed with dark roasted caramel malts and all-imported hops and aged on toasted bourbon oak casks and whole Madagascar vanilla beans, this winter brew is the second to be launched in a series of specialty seasonal drafts.

If I had access to it, I’d try it. BeerAdvocate even gives it a passing grade (though only 14 reviews so far) of 82. Not bad.
