snow strom thurmond

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. 

I don’t know what it is…

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!

And then…

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.
