Michelob Winter's Bourbon Cask Ale

Winter Ale Aged On Bourbon Oak Casks and Madagascar Vanilla beans.

Next time guys, try aging the beer in the Bourbon Oak Casks.  You'll probably get better results.

Web stuff:  During even the coldest of weather, warm up to the smooth, robust taste of our Winter's Bourbon Cask Ale. Full of rich aromas that you find in the winter months, hints of vanilla and flavorful hops, this is a beer that is great for pouring into a large tulip glass and enjoying with friends around a fireplace.

What does it really taste like?  Diet cream soda.  Yes, DIET cream soda.  Bourbon ales are supposed to get their hint of vanilla from the barrel, not beans.  I was hoping for an affordable, decent bourbon ale.  Not great, but decent.  Didn't get it.

Bomb's away!  Dropped in a shot of Old Grand Dad bourbon.  It's a bit better.  Now it tastes like watered down bourbon, with a diet soda after-taste.  Who am I kidding?  It still sucks.

Cost: $6.99 six/pack
