OmegaX (1157) - Florida, USA - DEC 29, 2011
Bottle pour. Nose is full of bubblegum and banana sweetness with a hint of citrusy hops. Some caramel in the nose. A touch of spice (cinnamon) is also in the aroma but faint. Pour is a nice brown/ruby color in the light with a light tan, fluffy head with sloppy lacing. Taste is quite malty with some slight citrus hops. Notes of caramel and toffee come through with some slight nuttiness at the end. Some light cinnamon and cardamom are present as the beer warms up. Good ale for a cool night.

frozen_glass (51) - Wisconsin, USA - DEC 20, 2011
All the bubblegum sweetness and minty freshness of a candy cane is packed the in the aroma. Translucent brown color, with a fleeting tan head. Sweetness dominates the flavor throughout, supplemented by bitterness in the middle, but the flavor isn’t overwhelming. Medium body and carbonation. A pleasant, but weak and very sweet, winter beer.

Clear red brown in color with off white lacing. Candied fruit aroma with distinct coffee bean on the palate. A fun expression of a Christmas beer. Maybe a little hyped though.
