Beer Wednesday – Cisco Winter Shredder
Happy Beer Wednesday!
This week I’m quite pleased to continue to bring you a few beers by Cisco Brewers, in Nantucket.
This week, I’m reviewing their winter seasonal, Winter Shredder.
This beer poured a great color, with a beautiful, thick, foamy head. The look of it was great, but the flavor left me feeling a tad flat. There was a lot of spice in the front of the beer, with a hint out smoke, but very little of that carried past the nose and first sip. The finish was a little thin, and very little flavor hung around, neither pleasantly nor unpleasantly. It just kind of vanished after I swallowed.
There was a weird little sweetness to the finish, and I didn’t particularly love it. Overall, I may not buy this again, despite my love for the brewery. I’m a little disappointed to give this beer a 3/6 on my six-pack scale.
Give it a try and let me know if you disagree.
