Onslow (1210) - Kalamazoo, Michigan, USA - DEC 24, 2012
Pour from a 12 oz bottle. Clear amber brew with white head. Aroma of ginger, cinnamon and a little caramel. Taste is dry, ginger and spice at the start with a little more bitter in the finish and a clean dry astringent end. Average to thin palate. Interesting take on the holiday style and not bad.

Draft. Clear reddish amber pour, with an off white head. Sweet, nutmeg, clove, cinnamon, ginger, strong christmas spices, and some toffee. Too much spice in my opinion, but ok.

commonmac (411) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - NOV 25, 2013
Another tap at Luce in Hopkins. A copper color holiday ale that clings well to the pint glass. Aroma is light which serves as a precursor for the follow up taste. Just seems to be missing something like an increase in spices. Not an impressive beer but not a disappointment either. Itís like a Christmas with half the presents.

erway (1004) - Albuquerque, New Mexico, USA - NOV 4, 2005
GABF-Pours a lite amber with an off-white head. Heavy cinnamon and ginger nose with little maltiness. Body is lacking some weight which it tries to make up for with overly high CO2. Somewhat 1 dim flavor of spices. A pretty boring and not very warming x-mas.

presario (4709) - Stampede City, Alberta, CANADA - NOV 11, 2005
Bottle via trade with Ohiodad. Pales a bit after a Nosferatu. Light golden copper. No head. Light aroma. A gingery finish but less flavour than expected.

BeerandBlues2 (10065) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - DEC 2, 2005
12-oz. bottle thanks to OhioDad. Pours clean coppery red with tiny fast rising bubbles and a small off-white head that dissipates to a film with some lined lacing. Yeast (sour leather) and fruity floral hop aroma with medium malt (meal) notes and some spice (cinnamon) hints. Bitter hop lightly acidic flavor with a medium caramel malt body and a hoppy rind, floral aftertaste. Medium bodied and fizzy, dry palate.
