COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
People’s Choice Award Winner at the 2010 Cleveland Labor Day Oktoberfest. Our lightest regular brew. Modeled after the German Kolsch-style ale our Gold is bone-dry with a soft malt flavor and delicate hop bitterness. Our American made cousin is clean tasting, refreshing and smooth.

Nice winter/holiday ale. Local to me, but no one seems to know about it, since Great Lakes is easily THE dominant local brewer. Anyway, I like the spiciness of Jingle Bell, as it doesn’t seem over done. Some sweetness and a little hop bitterness in the mix. Doesn’t seem as ungodly heavy as some Christmas beers. Definitely worth a try if you see it. On tap at Panini’s last year, bottles at ACME this year.

cough drop, really through me for a loop, did not expect the initial cough syrup taste, grew on me after two, sure the 7 % aBV helped, but would not do again, have 2 left from a 6 pack bottle

On tap at vintage estate. A little more orange than a pale lager. Creamy thin head. Has a sweet cotton candy aroma. Interesting melting powder sugar mixed with vanilla er something spices. Quite unique. Very fine lacing. Has a slight bitter undertone. Some medicinal linger on the finish. Even so, its not as bad as I thought it would be. Yes a decent holiday beer. Soft mild creamy co2. Good overall Christmass beer experience.

This poured a semi murky dark red color with a beige head. Aroma was of some sort of weird spice, almost like frankensense, but very overpowering and a bit off putting. Taste was much the same as the aroma, very spice, but overdone completely and covers up the malts underneath.
