Thought I was drinking the regular Amber until I learned that it was the Noel beer. Orange with a red tint and a thin, sticky, frothy, lasting white head. Smells of red berries, light roast with some herbal elements. Some mild caramel. Medium oily body. Tastes of light roasted malt with caramel with maybe a bit more malt than the regular amber. Maybe not. Some berries. What make this one different is a light citrus southeast and some ginger and cinnamon bits but mostly the same as the amber.

From tap at the brewpub. Pours clear and golden deep amber with a small tan head. Aroma is roasted malty, light fruity note. Sweet malty flavoured, light roasted and with a mild fruity touch. Light liqourice touch into a sweet malty lingering finish. Light hops bitterness. Lingering fruity and liqourice into the far finish.
