Timed to coincide with the holiday season, a very special lager is brewed with honey, oranges, and spices. This beer uses two pounds of honey per pound of malt in its brew, making it an exceptional fortified holiday specialty beer which will keep for years. The spices and hops balance the sweetness of the honey and malt to give this lightly hopped beer its perfect flavor.
Alcohol ABV varies from 9.5% to 11% each year

Found this one bottled at Binny’s in St. Charles, Illinois. Hazy copper red pour with a thin white head, profound spiciness in the nose and body, with a bit of citrus and lots of ginger, nutmeg and clove. Sweetness comes on late. This is a phenominal beer.

dark amber-orange hues with a dash of tan head.Nose is very aromatic,seasonal spices like pumpkin pie and spiced apples.Too bad the flavor isn’t quite as good as the aroma.the orange and spices come out but the brew looses itself somewhere.

Bottle. Nice beer. This brew would be cool to age in rum barrels. Warms my tummy. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours a dark amber with a white head and an aroma that is stronly spicey. The flavor has a slight malty sweetness and is predominately spicey with ginger, cinammon, and orange peel.

They definitely weren’t kidding about the spice. Reddish amber pour with a tiny white head. Aroma of cinnamon, nutmeg and allspice, maybe a dash of clove. Flavor is malty and spicy, rich with the aforementioned spices ... almost too spicy, in fact. Sweetness up front with a light, bittersweet finish. Good body and mouthfeel. Not a bad little holiday beer.

Bottle wk. 3 of Nov. 2011. Pours clear ruby/garnet with a small creamy beige head. Aromas of cinnamon and nutmeg, apples and apple pie spice, and brown sugar. Bitter-ish grass with nutmeg and cinnamon, trending into sweet brown sugar. Average. [915]

Juelze (1141) - Green Bay, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 4, 2005
UPDATED: DEC 5, 2005 Bottle. Pours a cloudy brown with nice head and lacing. Smells of ginger, cinnamon, and malt. Taste is like a liquidfied iced gingerbread cookie with honey and a bit of acidic orange in the background. Hides the alcohol REALLY well. This was almost a drain pourer. Too many spices thrown into this one.

It wasn’t all that bad….. Overly spiced actually I think it was just their Pumpkin Lager with more malt and extreme spices.
Rich mahogany body, syrupy looking body, small light tan head too assist. The aroma is a spice bin of cinnamon, nutmeg, clove, orange zest, and pumpkin. The flavor is similar but with a sweet, dry, warming finish. A respectable medium palate and random sheets of lacing.
Like I mentioned, I think it’s just the Pumpkin Lager with a ampped ABV%.

HighlanderOne (1101) - Bergen County, New Jersey, USA - DEC 17, 2011
Poured from bottle. Aroma of brown sugar and orange peel. Cloudy mahogany, tan head. I taste citrus, cinnamon, brown sugar, nutmeg, pumpkin with a warming alcohol essence. Odd, sort of hybrid feel to it. Flavors tend to get heavy toward the end. Still, an interesting unique beer.

This is the perfect beer for the holiday season. Spices are well balanced with sweetness of the honey. This is similiar to Lakefronts Pumpkin Lager.
