Whistler Brewing Co. – Valley Trail Chestnut Ale Review

The Whistler Brewing co has come out with the Valley Trail Chestnut ale as a limited edition winter brew. The beer is a fittingly chestnut colour and poured into the glass with a finger and a half of head. The smell coming off this beer is strong with nut, caramel and a creamy vanilla. The flavour mirrors the smell with a sweetened, toasted caramel flavour smoothed by a vanilla creaminess. This Chestnut ale is a tad on the sweet side but has a smooth bitterness that helps to balance the overall feel. A touch different from the ordinary this is a warming, hearty and enjoyable winter seasonal ale.

Alcohol – 5%
Size – 650ml
