Day 358 Drink: Pyramid Snow Cap Winter Warmer

Pyramid Breweries started out in 1984 as the Hart Brewery. In 1986, the company launched an English-style winter warmer called Snow Cap. Pyramid is now part of North American Breweries.

Pyramid Snow Cap Winter Warmer is a 7 percent alcohol by volume ale that pours a deep red brown with a moderate tan head. The beer has a nice malty aroma with just a hint of spice. At first you think the malt will totally dominate this brew, but the 47 IBU come forward with some grapefruit qualities. There is good amount of flavor to the beer, with roasted malt, some coffee notes and dried fruit.
