I love this beer. Most Christmas ales have too many spices and are overpowering. This is the best christmas ale because of the great flavor. it just tastes like Christmas

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12oz bottle pours with a deep copper body that has small floaties everywhere and supports a lasting tan head of foam. The aroma offers up apple, cantaloupe and winter spices. The taste starts off with a mix of spices and red apples and then it picks up a dash of roasted malts. Right around the edge of the flavor are mild mango and cantaloupe notes. This is on the spicy side with its winter like spices but fruity sweetness, malts and some mild roasted maltiness creates some balance.

Tap. Pint. Light red, small head. Aroma is subtle for a Xmas ale. Has some typical spice flavors, but muted. Finish is ok.
