There are many people who would argue that our English Winter Ale is perfect as it is, with the right balance of fresh spices and malty goodness. Those people are not incorrect, however that has never stopped me from dry hopping my beers. Try throwing 2 oz. of your Citrus bomb up in the secodary fermenter for 3-5 days to create your American Winter Ale!
The English Winter Ale boasts a deep maltiness and warming spice profile from the Ginger and Cinnamon that will compliments flavors of dishes such as beef stew or mellow the sweetness of desserts like pecan pie.
