I received Hibernator as part of a gift pack of Long Trail brews.  I have the best family in the world! They give me beer as presents!

I must say I absolutely love the label!  I could be that bear! That's my kind of hibernation.

Hibernator (5.8% ABV) is an unfiltered Scottish Ale. This is a popular Long Trail brew that's been brewed for the winter season since 1995.

It pours a hazy amber bordering on copper. It has a thick and fluffy head that has good retention and leaves behind a goodly amount of lacing on the glass.

The aroma is a big burst of malt with underlying note of peat.

The taste is very malty; pleasantly sweet but not overwhelmingly so. Caramel and biscuit flavors compliment and offset subtle earthiness. The finish is clean and mildly bitter.

The mouthfeel is on the light side of medium with moderate carbonation.

Hibernator is an easy drinking, flavorful beer that can suit nearly any palate. Refreshing.

Overall: good
