Beer Review: Cisco Brewers Winter Shredder


Beer: Winter Shredder
Brewer: Cisco Brewers
Source:  12 oz. bottle
Rating: ** (6.2 of 10)
Comments: The Nantucket-made winter beer has a copper brown color with a thick head.  The aroma is spicy and the taste runs the gamut from hoppy too malty too spicy and reverting to a bitter hoppiness for the aftertaste.  Despite all those tastes the flavor is a bit thin.  The beer leaves a gentle lacing on the glass.  This is a decent winter beer without all the cliches of the genre.
