It has a cinnamon and ginger spice flavor, a rich copper color, and a medium body that will fit with any holiday meal.

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.

Sparkling deep copper, fizzy off white head. Spicy nose of ginger, cinnamon, and dried citrus, with lighter notes of honeycomb and juniper. Gingery flavor mellows into cinnamon and citric honey tones. Some faint hints of cherry emerge at room temp. Nice spice, malt, hop balance throughout. Medium bodied and slick, light carbonation, spicy finish. Really wish Great Lakes was available in MD. My 3rd beer from them in the last few months, and without a doubt, another winner in my book....

2 bottles shared with HogTownHarry, GregClow & tupalev -- courtesy of HogTownHarry and me. Pours a clear orange/amber with an average size foamy white head. Nice lacing. Sweet and spicy aroma of malt, cinnamon, ginger and citrus hops. Flavour is mildly spicy (cinnamon & ginger) along with some malt, hops and honey -- quite nice! Medium bodied. I really enjoyed it.
