Winter brings darker beer styles. Porters, stouts, winter warmers. Brooklyn’s Winter Ale is actually neither of the 3. It’s a Scottish Ale. You’ll see this style broken down into light, heavy & export. The breakdown dates back to 19th century Scotland, where the style was taxed based on abv. Scottish ales are malt forward, with a nice malt sweetness.
Based on the satisfying malty ales of blustery Scotland, Brooklyn Winter Ale will have you looking on the bright side of things. Rich Scottish malts bring deep bready flavors to a beer with a full copper color, a round, smooth palate, and brisk hopping that pulls the sweet malts into balance. See – things are looking up already!
