Third Beer of Christmas - Sprecher's Finest

The theme for the next couple of brews is less focused on Christmas and more broadly covers the winter season. Hey, it can't be Christmas everyday. So, without further adieu:

For the third beer of Christmas our true love brought to us the Sprecher Brewing Company's fire brewed Winter Brew Lager. The Winter Brew pours with more carbonation than you might expect, resulting in a larger oatmeal-color head that dissovles rather quickly. You can sense the extra carbonation but it doesn't get in the way of the beer. It has an aroma of caramel, molasses, and maybe a hint of vanilla. The caramel flavor has hints of maltyness and a citrus or bitter finish. It's a full bodied bock but doesn't fill you up after one or two pints.

Sprecher's Winter Brew is a solid, reliable brew that could only come from a place like Milwaukee. If you need status to make your brew go down easier it might help you to know that the Winter Brew won World Beer Cup Gold and Bronze medals.


While researching the Winter Brew we stumbled upon Sprecher's label for Vampire Blood Ale. Hmm, is there a Twilight beer review in our future?
