Advent Beer Calendar: Day 18: Winter Solstice Seasonal Ale

Anderson Valley Brewing Company's Winter Solstice Seasonal AleBack to America again with today’s beer, Anderson Valley‘s Winter Solstice Seasonal Ale. I’ve enjoyed Anderson Valley’s beer in the past (they brew a good amber), but haven’t had this one. They say:

Luscious, creamy, smooth, and warming, this medium bodied ale is brewed with Caramel and crystal malts to give it just a hint of sweetness, then paired with our private blend of holiday spice.

It racks up a score of 85 on BeerAdvocate, 95% approval. It sits at a hefty 6.9% alcohol.

Anderson Valley’s website indicates that Winter Solstice is "going fast," so you’d probably better grab a bottle if you see it. Unless you think that’s just marketing hype… but you could grab a bottle anyway. :)
