While having a lovely maroon cidery appear that lacks a head aside from a sparse ring of bubbles, this adequately named beer is a liquid Christmas tree in aroma and flavor. Floral (Cascade?) hops interplay with english candy malts in both aroma and flavor--though the former is slightly more pleasing. Nicely balanced winter selection with some bitter/sour notes on finish.

dark brown. malt and sweet sprucy flavors. pretty hoppy - but an even mix between spiciness and bitterness - works out to a nice bite on the finish. some alcohol taste. splits the difference between the malty-sweet seasonal beers and the hopped-over-the-top ones. very warming. excellent winter beer.
