This beer entices the sense of smell with a fragrance consisting of honey, cinnamon, and nuts. This beer fills the glass with tawny-rose colored solution that resides under thick cream soda colored head. This beer is thick and smooth and flows through the mouth well. The taste is a grainy honey sensation that has hints of clove and all-spice in the background. The sweet taste turns a tad bitter as it tickles the throat on the way to the tummy.

Pours a slightly reddish amber color with a medium sized white head. Aroma is of spicy ginger snaps,nutmeg, cinnamon and honey. Taste is kind of bland with slight hints of ginger,nutmeg and cinnamon. Not a big fan of these types of ales. Good, but not great.

Not a bad brew, but has a strange aftertaste that I cannot place. Goes down ok, has a decent aroma - fair for a Christmas Ale.

Was expecting more from this ale. It is a very expensive beer but does not deliver what you are expecting. Has a nice sweet taste but was not as full as I would have liked.

Bottle. A very nice example of a Christmas ale. Spicy nose was very present. Poured reddish brown with a small beige head. Flavor was a blend of spice and alcohol. I really recommend a nice wide mouth glass to take advantage of the aroma.

Thanks to hopdog. Pours a translucent golden orange with a small off white lacing head. Aroma of honey, ginger, cinnamon, light alcohol and some other spices. Flavor of the same, kind of like the aroma a bit more.

12oz bottles acquired in trades with OhioDad and I can’t remember who else (thanks!). The 1st bottle I opened I noticed was dated best before Jan ’04. This one was all cardboard. Good thing I had another one dated best before Jan. 20, 06. Poured a medium and clear amber color with an averaged sized off white head. Aromas of honey, ginger, other spices, and citrus. Tastes of lighter honey and ginger with caramel.

Bottle. Pours a medium amber color, clear for the most part, beige color head. Nice aroma, good balance between the sweeter malt and the spices, definitely some ginger and cinnamon. It all works together well, very complimentary, sweet and spicy. Medium to full body, moderate carbonation. Very good.

Bottles shared with HogTownHarry, blankboy & tupalev - courtesy of HogTownHarry & blankboy. Bright amber with a moderate head. Nice aroma of candyish malt, dark honey, cinnamon & clove. Flavour holds a great balance of malt and spice, with hops & honey in the finish. Quite nice.
