Bottle from Beverages 4 Less in Santee, CA. Pours copper with a foamy two finger beige head. Mild xmas spice aroma. Medium body; foamy carb. There’s a lot of flavor. Nutmeg? Evergreen? Malt. Not too strong, but definitely entertaing. Actually towards dry. Spiced bitter.

brokensail (9921) - Orange County, California, USA - FEB 16, 2011
A: The beer pours an orange/amber color with a finger of white head that settles down to a thin layer. S: Quite a bit of spice here. Cinnamon is certainly there as well as some spicy hop notes. Bread, caramel, and toffee malts and a slight creaminess to it. Perhaps a little bit of yeast in there too. T: A pronounced spiciness to the flavor as well with some nutmeg and cinnamon as well as some spicy hop notes. Sweet caramel and toffee with a little bit of bread. M: The body is on the light end of medium with a moderate level of carbonation. D: This was an alright beer. Not bad but I don’t really care whether or not I have this again.
