Monteiths Winter Ale (New Zealand)

Monteith's Winter Ale (Doppelbock)
Monteith's Brewing Co.
6% ABV

The seasonal "Winter Ale", brewed using 4 different malts with the intent on Delivering a rich depth of flavours from New Zealand's famous brewery.


Roasted malts are used and this gives the beer a roasted coffee, chocolate character.  I even got a very slight tobacco aroma.  The beer is a dark brown/ruby colour, slightly hazy with a just off-white creamy head.  The beer has enough malt to give it a good amount of depth and has a nice bitter finish.  It has a surprisingly light body.

This is a good beer, well priced with enough flavour to interest the fussy midweek drinker but it has a light body making it a great beer for session drinking too.
