Copper pour, small white head. Notes of honey and ginger along with some cake and bitter spiced nuts in the flavor. A great Christmas Ale.

Has a faint cinnamon aroma to it. Decent amber color, with little head. Nice cinnamon flavor to it. Has a decent body, and pretty good carbonation. Overall, its not too bad, it definitely fits in with Christmas.

Ughsmash (7322) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 1, 2006
Bottle, dated 1/24/06 (BB?). Medium orange pour with a short cap of white head and some nice lacing ensued. Nose was heavily spiced with ginger and cinnamon... backed by some sweet toffee maltage. Flavor followed the aroma well, and had a spiced up Vienna feel to it. Alcohol was more and more pervasive as this warmed. Mouthfeel was slightly grainy, and light-medium bodied. Not bad.

"Oh well another average spiced beer. Poured a orange/coper color, average head with okay lacing. Aroma was of caramel malts cinnamon ginger and some other spice. Flavor was the same but had an off aftertaste. "

Copper brown. Yes a winter warmer, the cinammon, the nutmeg, cocoa. Pleasant, some hops and appropriate carbonation. A nice drink, though not exceptional. A bit sweet maltiness with bitterness in the finish. Pleasant spicy aftertaste. Medium mouthfeel.

Thanks to OhioDad for this. Drinking this beauty is like watching Tony Danza sing Silent Night. Poured amber with an off white head. Glows orange when held in the light. Aroma is superb: cinamon, nutmeg, clove, gingersnap, bread, and other spices I cant place my finger on. The flavor was a smooth blend of spices with a pumpkin flavor. This is like a beefed up Anchor Merry Christmas. The taste is what I would call "After thanksgiving, before Christmas" whatever that is.

Nice deep, clear amber/copper color. Thin off-white head. Aroma is sweet with spices... maybe honey and allspice / cinnamon. Its a bit of warming in the belly... nice sweet flavor, complimented with spices and some hops around the edge. To me, this is a [mostly] great example of a holiday spice beer. Its pleasantly sweet and nicely spiced without being overdone in any area.
