Alaskan Winter Ale Alaskan Brewing Company Juneau, Alaska
Get ready for something different when you drink one of these, something different and something delicious. Although I normally don't like fruit-flavored beers, pine needles are a different story, and that's what the company says goes into this ale. The distinctive taste is very clean and seems to complement the malts, giving the beer a honey-like feel. Although it doesn't pack the punch of the big winter warmers, I buy it whenever I can find it, just like it's distant cousin, Alaskan Smoked Porter. - Jonathan Shikes
