COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
There is a tradition in the world of ale brewing to craft celebratory holiday ales that incorporate festive spices and perhaps other special ingredients. Baird Jubilation Ale is brewed within the context of this tradition and in the spirit of joyful celebration. A hearty ale with a rich malty base and soothing alcoholic warmth (ABV 6.5%), Jubilation Ale is made luxuriant by deft additions of two wonderful ingredients: (1) fully ripened figs candied in the country kitchen of our friend, Shoko-chan, and (2) cinnamon twigs culled from a Japanese Nikki tree. A sublimely balanced interplay between sweet and spice reminiscent of the yin-yang duality of life results. The ruby-red hue and the wafting aroma of cinnamon warm the heart and furbish the soul.

Poured out an amberishy red brew that is fairly hazy with a medium sized off white cap. This has a nice, soft aroma of spices that consist of cinnamon, figs follow with some depth, caramel and bread, light fruity sweetness. Very good flavour of cinnamon, bread, white pepper, caramel and thickness with a consistency of uncooked dough. Figs, lightest of citrus, weak hops and a bit astringent at the bottom of my glass. Decent brew that I had no problem drinking a whole bottle of but don’t see getting this again.

650ml bottle pours amber in color with a small off-white head that leaves little lacing on the glass. Aroma is fruity with some cinnamon.

"a decent hoppy spiced ale that was enjoyable enough. even a little unique. but in the end the flavors were a bit muddled and the beer lacked focus. i’d drink it again, but wouldn’t pay the premium price on another bottle."
