This really is a great winter ale. I prefer it over Deschutes Jubelale much more. I really enjoyed the roasty malts in the aftertaste and felt it had the perfect amount of bitterness in the initial taste. I would definitely buy Snow Day again. The more I drank this beer the more I enjoyed it. I think New Belgium really did right on this winter ale. I don’t really have any criticism to report. Give this winter ale a try!
