The Chief Chipotle Harvest Ale – Whistler Brewing Company

Limited Edition Seasonal

From Whistler Brewing out of Whistler BC comes the “The Chief Chipotle Harvest Ale”.  This spiced ale pours a deep amber colour with an off white head.  The aroma consists of caramel, malts, and some floral hops.  The flavour is of caramel malts, toasted malts, some earthy hops bitterness with a mild spicy finish from the Chipotle.  The alcohol content comes in at a standard 5%.  There is no consensus with beer nerds on this beer.  I personally quite liked the beer as I found that the chipotle acted almost like an extra hops bitterness instead of a really spicy warmth I expected.

  1. Neat! Reminds me of Rogue’s and another (who’s name I can’t recall), which were also a bit controversial for their time.
