12 oz bottle served in tulip glass. One finger off white head which dissapears rather quickly. No real lacing. Beer is sorta copper in color. Light aroma with notes of honey and spices. Taste is sweet with notes of cinnamon and spices with notes of honey. Medium bodied beer. Light carbonation. Lingering finish. Overall good enjoyable sweet ale.

Turboninja (450) - Tampere, FINLAND - NOV 28, 2015
Tap@Great Lakes brewpub. Light aroma with pumpkin and cinnamon. Copper color with minimal artificial white head and clear liquid. Medium/strong taste with bit overaged pumpkin, cinnamon and other Christmas flavors. Medium taste spectrum and short slightly spicy after taste. Medium balanced. Medium body with medium/low carbonation. Overall vivid and sturdy though bit simple product.

As sweet ales go, this is one of the better ones. This ale pours deep copper color, the head fades quickly. The aroma is ginger, spice, winter squash, malt, and a little citrus. The flavor adds honey and a little lemon on the close. I like this quite a lot.

Pours a dark, reddish-brown, with minimal head. Aroma is bursting with spices, ginger, etc. Flavor also dominated by the spices. Not sure this is really my thing...

Pours a dark copper color with a white head. Fruity aromas and spice Flavors. Some cinnamon and sugar also medium sweetness and mouth feel. Very nice example of a Christmas ale.

Emeister84 (1982) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - NOV 14, 2015
Fruity aromas, spice, and malt. Clear red with a mostly fading off-white head. Pretty sweet, fruity, some spice, flavors are a little flat. Medium-full bodied, barely cloying.

jsporrer (524) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 14, 2015
Sample from a tap. Pours a deep brown in color with a tan ring. Some hints of spice in the aroma. Body is a little thin. Flavor is mostly spices which were a little harsh. Not really what I expected from a Christmas ale nor from Great Lakes. Didn’t really enjoy this one.
