I’m not a changed man after drinking this. That said, I was pleased to have Snow Storm around when the alternative was a case of Miller Lite my relatives were lusting over. Drinkable, and pleasingly so, but definitely not the boldest of winter brews. Sweet, but not too much, with a clean finish. A pretty noncomittal, Minnesota Nice ale.
A tad creamy. I do like the malt flavor on my tongue. The slightly hoppy finish is meh, more because that’s my personal preference than because it’s poorly done. I could keep drinking it, but I wouldn’t savor it.
It’s not really winter in Minnesota until I’ve had my first Summit Winter Ale, both on tap and a 12-pack at home. It’s not the best winter brew I’ve had, but I will still buy it every year. It just tastes like a Minnesota winter.
I just can’t get excited about this beer, which is too bad, because if I read its description somewhere, I’d tell myself that I ought to get some immediately.
I’ve been drinking this all winter, both at Tracy’s and at home. On my most recent pour at home, I managed about a finger of head. Lovely reddish-brown color. Smells like someone put roasted malt in there!
I don’t know. It just kind of tastes like a basic dark beer. Thin-to-medium body. It’s got decent malt-to-hops balance, with the roast flavor coming on fairly strong midway through and a mild, hoppy finish. It tastes like a light porter.
I like it. I drink it. I just can’t get excited about it.
