New Beer Blog Motor City Works Winter Ale (2014)


In this winter beer blog, we are going to sample Winter Ale from Motor City Works.  If you read my earlier beer blog post on their India Pale Ale, you know the history of this Detroit base craft brewery.  If you have not, please, read them to get to know this Michigan craft brewery.  Let us get into this winter ale.

It has a cloudy amber to bronze color with a white head on this winter ale. The smell is non existed. I cannot pick up anything. The taste has a sweet malty notes with notes of spruce tips notes. It has a nice malty aftertaste. It is kind of drinkable.

Here is a description from the beer bottle:

Motor City Winter Ale is a rich barley wine style ale.  Deep amber in color, full and malty in taste complemented with a hint of spruce and an ABV that will keep you warm all winter long.

The thin layer of sediment at the bottom of each bottle is the mark of our all natural brewing process.  Unfiltered, Unpasteurized… Naturally!

Here is their website and twitter addresses:

Closing, I do not why I keep trying their beers.  They are like Atwater Brewery.  They do not make good beer.  I rather drink a Budweiser before I have to force another beer from either brewery down my system.  I have not had everything from them.  It is too late because the beers that I already had.  I am not a fan. Spruce tips and spices are not a good mix.  They did a bad job using spruce tips.  It did not go over well in this ale.  I believe they should take some notes from Alaskan Brewery.  I do not recommend this brew.  Don’t go get some!  Drink it!  Enjoy it!  Metal it!  \m/
