COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This year’s Fa continues with bags full of Matt’s favorite hop, Centennials, to warm your heart and soul. It’s like a sweater for your insides! Brewed with Gambrinus Pilsner malt and a dash of crystal malts, this brew has a voluptuous malt bill to harmonize with the wealth of hops. ‘Tis the season to be jolly!

Bottle. See my review for Gypsy Stumper that immediately precedes this one. I felt much the same about this brew, although it had more caramel and more earthy notes. Still a mess.

Aroma is citrus, light funk and an earthiness. Clove and yeast aswell. Taste is roasted malts, honey, tart and earthiness. Appearance is a clear amber with a medium pearl head that retains fairly well.

DeanF (2348) - Alberta, CANADA - FEB 20, 2016
Nice head and gold-orange body even when poured at a freezing 1.9 celcius. Yeast and orange peel on the nose, hints of cardamom. Flavour is a lot of hops with that cardamom spice built in and a crisp finish. Good stuff, tasty, reliable, a few too many of these and you won’t remember your beer ratings the next morning.

Enjoyable. Bit overly sweet with toffee and Caramel and a bit of citrus and pine. Light grassy and fresh floral note. Well balanced and mild resin finish.

This be hiding in my fridge for a while. Oranges, sweet cinnamon, toffee, pine, white bread, that’s mainly what the holes detect. Thankfully this is not one of those stupidly spiced up beers. That doesn’t mean some blend of mystical winter spice hasn’t snuck into the fold. This really fucking hopped up. More malty and caramelly than the aroma, still spiced lightly and comes swinging for the fences with a sledgehammer of bitterness. Earthy hop things, licorice, candy sweetness, pine and pain. Putting back a pull from the Budweiser chalice every 10 seconds has ruined my palate in a good way and will leave me and my zero tolerance messed up very shortly. Pretty good yet not worthy of a revisit.

stantheman (900) - British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 30, 2015
From a 500 ml bottle. A dark brown beer with orange highlights, a moderate beige head and fruity, slightly spicy nose. Flavor is reminiscent of dried fruits. Decent hop bite as well. Quite nice. 3.8.

vadie (1231) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 30, 2015
J’ai pris cette bière en fût. C’était un peu froid alors peut-être j’ai manqué les saveurs subtile des malt. Pour moi c’était malté au début, mais surtout amer. L’amertume était en déséquilibre, mais encore, peut-être parce que c’était trop froide pour lasser sortir les sucres et le profile complet du malt. Un peu épice, du malt caramel, et plein d’houblon.

XaenDovet (1282) - British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 21, 2015
Draught. Hazy amber, creamy cap, great lacing. Aroma of caramel, soft spice (cinnamon?), and quite earthy. Taste is sweet, soft bitterness, rounded with a bunch of umami. Palate is creamy, medium-low carbonation, long, subtle dry finish.
