This one of the first Chirsmas beers I saw on the shelves, and since it was Bellís and only bottles 2 weeks prior, I grabbed it. This main impression was, as I have had with some of the other Christmas beers, where is the Christmas?? A fine, middle of the road amber ale, but I would like some spice or dark notes with my holiday brews...

Hazy. A bit of suspension. Nice head. Definitely do not get an overwhelming Christmas ale taste.

On tap at Mad Mex, pours an amber. Paired well with wings and was pretty refreshing but was weak overall; honestly not sure why this is a Christmas ale. Smell is weak in hops. Taste isnít too bitter at all and brings a ton of carbonation to the table. After taste is almost none. Little to no lacing down glass.

I had this at Global Brew. Pours amber with a white head. Taste malty, sweet, fruity. I thought this was good. I could drink this again.

Hands down worst beer Iíve had from Bells. Pours amber. Scent is grainy and a bit synthetic. Bland mildly sweet flavor. Wondering if something is wrong with the 2013 edition of this beer. Bottle - Ale Yeah! - Decatur, GA

First Christmas ale. Bottle. Two to three finger snow capped head. Cloudy honey Amber color. Sweet barley aroma obviously malt heavy. Bitter, nut, malt and sweet. Medium body. This would be great on a cold December day. Too bad Iím in Florida.
