Pyramid Snow Cap

Pyramid Snow Cap

Ratebeer 3.35 89th percentile
Beer Advocate B

Taste +3

The nose was standard for a winter warmer: vineous, cherries, hit of chocolate and dark fruits. It was heavier on the malt side with biscuits, caramel and minor cherries. The hops were hidden but piny and spicy. There was a good kick of alcohol warmth at the end also.

Aftertaste 0

It was a slippery and silky ending, but it just vanished.

Alcohol Content +1 7%

This is where the word 'warmer' comes from.

Value +1

I thought this was a pretty decent warmer; couldn't drink too many of these though.

Ingame Enhancement +1

This brew was enjoyed in Gord's basement. There was no gaming, but it was drank in good company.

Overall 6/10

The Snow Cap was everything a winter warmer should be; rich, dark, mildly fruity, malty with a good alcohol kick. Looking forward to next years version.
