12 oz. bottle Unbelievable! An aroma of baking gingerbread adorns this dark golden brew. Despite the amazingly heavy spicing and intense fragrance, this beer maintains a balanced body and proper flavor, with no cloying aftertaste. Quite simply the most dramatic yet drinkable spiced specialty beer I've had. I hope you like cinnamon!

This is a very delicious seasonal beer. This beer probably has the best blend of flavors of a holiday seasonal Iíve had. Delicious blend of spices contribute to the amazing flavor of this beer. Nice foamy head and great hoppy flavor! Excellent!

Pours an appealing red with a nice foamy head, kind of like Santa. Nice spicy aroma. Fruity orange with a great ginger aftertaste. Nice blend of malts, spices, and orange. Good job Lakefront!

This beer pours a dark red/brown color. The head is at least two inches. It leaves a spot of lace around the glass after settling. The aroma is quite spicy. I also smell fruity hints. A kiss of hops is present as well. The flavor is cinnamon all the way. A bit of clove and a definite alcohol flavor bites on the backend. This beer feels substantial. Which it should since itís a winter warmer. Iíve spent a few christmas get togethers sippin on this beer. I will most likely be pickin it up again this year.

This is Lakefrontís best seasonal beer. I try to lay a few down each year, and they do get better with age. I still have a few í93s and 94s. Just like a fine wine.
