Snow Cap, Pyramid Breweries, Seattle Washington
Pyramid has several locations including Berkeley, Seattle and Portland. It offers up a variety of beers and I'm sure most of us beer drinkers have had at least one of their beers. One of their most popular brews is Snow Cap. Some years, I like this beer a lot - some years, not as much. Which will it be....
It pours a deep deep red, nearly opaque.
There is not much aroma - just mildly malty.
The taste is smooth malt. It has a medium/full body and is mildly sweet and mildly bitter. It is a good winter standard with a lot of girth to it. Easy to drink, but particularly strong. A great holiday party beer.
The aftertaste is mildly malty and bitter.
From the website:
Malts: 2-Row, Caramel, Chocolate
Hops: Nugget, Willamette, East Kent Goldings
It is available all over - grab one, this year - I like it!
