Agh the annual release of Christmas ale... one of the few things to brighten the spirits of a clevelander. Pours a reddish amber under a small head. Nose is rich of nutmeg, cinnamon. Big and sweet taste adds malt, toffee, and slight biscuit. Full body, sip by the fireplace. Rated via BeerBuddy

Christmas in July! This legendary Cleveland beer always has kegs released in July for the half way point of Christmas in this area. Smell of cloves, cinnamon, and other spices are the best! This wonderful brew is darker orange, brown And the taste is smooth and spicy< like no other. Overall this brew gets a higher ranking. Love this beer! Pint of draft at Winking Lizard Copley.

Pours a clear, light copper, brief white head. Light toasty aroma. Taste is lightly sweet, slightly spicey - ginger; a hint of peppery hops in the finish. Palate is light, but lingering. Overall, a light, easily drinkable holiday ale. Better crafted then some similar offerings.
