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.

  1. I felt the same way about their Indie Pale Ale. It looks like a great beer but then something fell apart in the balance of the beer.

    • Oh, I like their pale ale. I think the malt balances well, this one was a bit, I don’t know, thin, I guess. Thanks for stopping by and letting me know what you think.
