2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottled. A hazy amber beer with an orangey head. The aroma has notes of spice hops, malt, and caramel, but also a light note of lactic acid. The flavor is lactic acid, malt, spices, and hay, leading to a tart finish. If a sour ale was the aim it wouldn’t be so bad.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
On tap at The Brew Dock. Appearance: Ruby red, small off white head. Body somewhat cloudy. Aroma: amazing, cinnamon, Christmas pudding, pumpkin & roast squash with Christmas spices. Flavour: Bitter, flavour is slightly less Christmas-sy than the flavour but that’s a good thing, lovely balance of the spices and malts, again Christmas pudding and winter spices, cloves and cinnamon, Long sweet finish. Very nice indeed.

A fair amount of cloves and ginger in this. Star anise less so. Warming but keeping the alcohol content well hidden.

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle says 7% OH.Pours a very, very hazy orange with a 2-2.5 inch tall creamy, ivory colored head. Aroma is not very appealing and actually smells a bit off with all of the spices present. Very strong clove mixed with the orange and anise makes a very unique but unappealing aroma as its way too spicy and almost no "beer" character comes through. Flavor matches the nose. Very strong clove up front followed by an intense orange/clove and light anise for the rest of the taste. The Munich and Fuggles present in this brew are completely lost on my palate. Body is light with a modest amount of carbonation. The brew does have great lacing left on the glass. Overall I didn’t care for this beer one bit. The nose was a bit of a turn off and the flavor was too overpoweringly spiced to make it enjoyable. Maybe if this were drank in combination with some holiday sweets or dessert, it may of been a bit more palatable.
