The best Christmas or Holiday Ale I have had. The description above explains it very well, the beer actually lives up to it. The only flavor it leaves out is the honey. It is not overwhelming, it just adds a little sweetness to make the beer not bitter.

This just tastes like Christmas. The cinnamon and ginger balance make this one of the best Winter Warmers Iíve had.

A surprisingly soft palate and almost no aroma. Little lace, but an intriguing orange-bronze color. Not a bad beer, just middle of the pack for Christmas seasonals.

Tastes like Christmas. Great for around the holidays if you can find it. Cinnamon and honey in a perfect blend. Lots of flavor. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

UPDATED: DEC 5, 2005 Beautiful red hue with quickly fading white head. Aroma of ginger, some other spices. Flavor is nice balance of cinnamon, ginger, and sweet honey. Gets me in the mood for Christmas. I could see how the cinnamon and ginger could turn one off from this brew, but I happen to love those flavors. They donít appear in excessive amounts either. Alcohol flavor seems very well hidden. This beer is spot on for me.

My first Christmas ale of 2013. Pours a deep copper color with a medium head. Smells deliciously of spices. Tastes initially dominated by the spices and carbonation and then immediately follows into a mild bitterness. Has a medium body and could be easily paired with most foods. Would definitely drink again.

UPDATED: MAR 10, 2005 One of my favorites. It has a pretty complex teste with all the spices blended into it. Itís expensive, but gets you drunk quicker than any beer Iíve had. Donít pound them on an empty stomach. Available from late October-early January. Doesnít transport very well; it picks up a very skunky and spoiled taste after packing it and driving for a while. And drink it quickly before it goes bad in the fridge.
