COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A dark, malty celebration ale with layered flavors and beautifully balanced hopping. Jubelale pours deep garnet in color, medium bodied, with notes of chicory, earth, spice and fruit. To beer lovers, it’s like Yule fire and family.

Medium brown with a decent, diminshing head. Lots of caramels mixed with orange hops on the aroma. Plenty of grains and malt on the palate with a spiced background. Again, caramel. A round, full, and refreshingly simple Winter Ale.

Tap at the Toronado. Another sampling in my quest to try holiday beers. This one is brown, with a modest head. Smells of hops and malts. It is not overly sweet, malty and a hint of vanilla perhaps. Nice beer, but actually not too different from say a Lost Coast Winterbraun.

I really think that hops jump out at me more than anything, true, it sweet, but damn its nicely hopped, reminds me of celebration ale. Great beer for my tastes!

Sweet in aroma and in flavor. The nose is malty - breads, caramel and wood. Taste filled with sweet fruits and spice, toffee and candy and then some roast and a bitter finish. Medium body and rich tasting. Nice seasonal ale.

Very dark red body that is brown if not held up to light. The head is tan with medium sized bubbles. The aroma is musty wood and some light hay. There is also toffee and tea. The taste has some dark coffee and a little bit of bitter chocolate. There is also some light woody character in the finish. Smooth and light body for the high abv. A nice winter warmer. Thanks fo rthe bottle, Larry Pitonka.
