4/28/2011: Baird Jubilation Ale (Japanese Ale Brewed
with Figs and Cinnamon)... Aroma: Sugary and fruity maltiness; fig
definitely comes through in the aroma; smells VERY malty. Appearance:
Hazy orange complexion with a frothy off-white head; soft visible
carbonation; minimal lacing. Flavor: Sweet and fruity in the front
with figs in the middle with fig and honey sweetness in the middle
with just a subtle touch of spice; dry pear-like fruitiness and
alcohol though the finish. Palate: Medium; very mellow and smooth;
seems a bit thin at times. Overall: Interesting... Not great, not

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Dark amber color. Sea salt candy, chocolate, nutmeg nose. Sweet malty mouth with notes of sea salt, milk chocolate, cherries, liquorice and oranges. Malty rich finish with milk chocolate and sea salt. Very unique. While other christmas beers from Baird reminded me of OSA, this was completely different and much enjoyed.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
633 ml bottle from Plaza Liquors - Pours a hazy amber color with a one finger thick light tan head. Very light lacing. Aroma is light esters (fig) and caramel malt with a hint of spice (very light cinnamon). I’m not quite sure what to make of the flavor. I mainly detect some esters and caramel malt. I’m not quite sure what to make of this beer. All I know is that it’s not worth the $12 I paid for it.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Caramel colored brew with a tight eggshell head that left a small amount of lacing after every sip. Aroma is subtle candied sugar, cinnamon, ginger, and molasses. Flavor is extremely balanced between hops and malt. Honey, cinnamon, caramel, brown sugar and citrus. Nothing mind-blowing but I thought this was a well put together beer.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
20110506 633ml bottle from State Line. Muddy light brown with medium brown, lofty, sturdy head that sticks a bit. Aroma is malty and spiced like bread pudding with a great cooked prune note and some sugared dates. It at first comes across as an old malt but with temp really shows the fruits. Soft bodied with mild eff and although it gives some impression of sweetness it actually appears to be quite dry. Earthy at the finish with pervasive spice, allspice, tree bark, assuredly the cinnamon. Nice beer, and probably pretty close to what I expected. The lighter abv is welcome although the beer comes across as well done English winter warmer.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
633ml bottle. Pours a strong amber almost copper colour with a good cap of tan foam. Lots of biscuity caramel malt through the aroma and this translates into the flavour. Smoothing the mouth with good texture and body.
