AleSmith’s YuleSmith is an Imperial Double red ale. It’s packed with hops and carmel malts for a delicious winter treat.
YuleSmith pours the color of a fox, ginger with a light head of foam that reduces to light lace. There are hops, pine and citrus on the nose. The hops do not overpower, as the nose would suggest. Instead, the malts balance the hops, bringing out sweet pine, a touch of caramel, and orange zest. The 8.5% ABV alcohol is well incorporated.
AleSmith Brewing Company releases versions of YuleSmith in summer and winter each year. The summer version has stronger hops and less malts.
Grab a bottle of YuleSmith Winter Holiday Ale if you want you want a hop-forward, full-flavored beer.
