Harpoon Winter Warmer(Spiced Ale)

Posted by on December 26, 2016

Harpoon Winter Warmer was the first seasonal beer we brewed and, as a matter of fact, it was one of the first seasonal beers in the country. To this day, we still look forward to the first Winter Warmer bottling of the season as a sign of the approaching holidays. From the label to the aroma to the flavor, it all reminds us of family get-togethers, and the beers that help make the holidays so festive.
Brewed since 1988, this beer has become a New England seasonal classic. Cinnamon and nutmeg dominate the aroma. The taste is a rich combination of the holiday spices and the hearty malt backbone. There is a mild sweetness to the finish along with the lingering flavor of the spices.
