2 Below, New Belgium Brewing Company, Fort Collins Colorado
One of our last Winter Beers I will get to this season is the 2 Below from New Belgium. It is widely available throughout the country...
It pours an orange amber with a thin tight head.
The smell is hop floral with a crisp freshness.
It is crisp and hoppy, the hop softens in the body. It has a medium body and is slightly creamy. 2 Below is very drinkable.
The aftertaste is a subtle hop bitterness. The palate resets quickly...
Perhaps not the most remarkable winter ale, but very drinkable and refreshing.
