Elysian Brewing Company (Seattle, Washington) recently announced that Bifrost Winter Ale has officially returned as the brewery’s winter seasonal offering.
Bifrost Winter Ale may be light in color, but Elysian Brewing crafted this winter seasonal release to be a sturdy, sizable Pale Ale that can hold its own in a market currently inundated with big, holiday-themed Stouts and Winter Warmers. This Winter Pale Ale lures you in with aromas reminiscent of “caramel apples with a little spice and orange zest,” and a bold and balanced flavor profile satisfies the soul with notes of earthy, citrusy hops and malt sweetness. Weighing in at 8.3% ABV, Bifrost Winter Ale has the ability to be that warming libation we all seek after a long, winter’s day.
Bifrost Winter Ale is a winter seasonal release currently available November through December 2016. Look for this one to turn up in 6-packs of 12 oz. bottles, 22 oz. bottles and on draft at select craft beer retailers in Florida, Georgia, and throughout the full distribution area of Elysian Brewing Company. If you find yourself in search of a warming ale that still provides you with a hop fix this winter, it sounds like you need to keep Bifrost Winter Ale in mind while on your next beer run. Prost!
