3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Pours a hazy reddish orange color. Flavor is malt forward, slightly sweet with notes of caramel, roast, banana bread. Medium bodied, slightly chewy. Just a kick of hops on the back end to dry it out. Flavors linger well past the last sip. An easy drinking beer.

Rating a Christmas ale on Easter, huh? Aromas of caramel and toffee. Nice spice taste, very smooth. Palate lingers a bit, very balanced. You would be able to drink a few of these. I almost wish it was that time of the season, no I don’t. No more snow!

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Pours a beautiful amber with tan head. Grainy malt aroma. Taste brings a bit more caramel. Not much spice for a winter ale. Slightly on the thin side. Ok, but probably not a repeater for me.

Brown-orange pour. Nose toasted malt, caramel, toffee, and light piney hops. Flavor is more toasted malt and caramel with a bitter pine and peppery alcohol. Lingering alcohol spice, toasted malt, and hops.

Draft, pours a dark cloudy copper. Taste is sweet caramel malt with slight bitterness. A little watered down tasting but certainly drinkable.

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
