3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft. Poured clear dark ruby color with an average frothy off-white head that was mostly lasting with excellent lacing. Moderate to heavy spice sweet aroma. Medium to full body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium to heavy balanced spice flavor with a medium to heavy sweet spice finish of moderate to long duration. Solid seasonal beer that exceeded my expectations.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Hazy red pour with a small head that fades to a thin ring. Aroma is heavy spiced. Cinnamon, ginger, clove, and light caramel. Tastes heavily spiced and sweet. Lots of cinnamon and ginger, light honey, caramel malt, and sweet breakfast cereal. Medium to full body. Not a big fan of this. Too much spice and generic sweetness.

Honey and soft ginger aroma. Pretty amber color, thick beige head. Sugary maltiness at first with plenty of honey sweetness. Ginger follows and there is some lingering, tingling cinammon on the tongue. Medium-full body, smooth and creamy. Very good.

Pours a clear dark brown/copper with a medium off white head. Somewhat earthy fall aroma with some sweet notes from the honey and a slight nutty hints. This beer really tastes like christmas. It has just the right sweet and bitter. You can feel the spices in the medium body and clean texture. Very clean finish that is almost cinnomon with a hint of sweetness. This is a very good Christmas ale. I hope they donít change a thing.
