Holiday Joy Spiced Ale is a robust, red-hued winter ale with a pleasant alcoholic warmth (approximately 6.5% alcohol by volume). Three popular Christmas-season spices are added to Holiday Joy at the end of wort boiling and this lends a magnificently festive aroma and pleasantly sweet spice flavor to the beer. Holiday Joy Spiced Ale thus can perform equally well as an aperitif or as a nightcap. In either case, it promises to bring added joy to your holiday season experience.
