Reindeer’s Revolt is one of a series of original Christmas beers brewed by Ridgeway for the USA, but also secretly available to other selected nations around the very edge of Europe where life... and good beer... is not always so serious!

Bottle. Pours a mostly clear amber color with a fairly thick frothy off-white head. Nose is actually a bit hoppy with just a hint of some floral notes. Taste is just slightly bitter, but very smooth. Actually a lot more interesting of a drink than I would have guessed.

swoopjones (6638) - Buffalo, New York, USA - JAN 16, 2013
Bottle, caramel colored pour. Sweet caramel malt aroma, touch of fruitiness. Sort of bland caramel malt flavor; rather flat. Ok drinkable

A decent novelty beer. Nothing super special but a good holiday beer...once.

DrinkEmUpJones (1069) - Georgia, USA - DEC 31, 2012
Hazy amber red with lots of bubbles. Very big nose with a red wine aroma. Very malty, with flavours of red wine and grape. Palate is somewhat thin. Interesting; good, but not great.

annunz123 (912) - Taunton, Massachusetts, USA - DEC 29, 2012
Caramel, citrus, and a somewhat unpleasant herbal/vegetable odor in the aroma. Taste is relatively dull and watery, with some decent malt. Some grassy bitterness and more metallic/vegetable in the finish. OK, but not worth seeking out.

Braudog (5965) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - DEC 29, 2012
Bottle. Pours amber-orange with a pretty big frothy head. The aroma is a bit mashy and sour. It drinks with a bit of mushiness, too. Like wet pine bark with a metallic, flat finish. (#4874, 12/29/2012)

Weefannybaws (122) - Barrhead, SCOTLAND - DEC 28, 2012
Bottle for Christmas in N Ireland. A tasty, strong English ale. Fruit and toffee overtones. At 6%, I would only be able to drink a few of these per evening.

Chudwick (2336) - Cincyucky, Kentucky, USA - DEC 25, 2012
Half liter bottle - pours murky dark orange with thin offwhite head and thin lacing. Nose is brown sugar, dark fruit, alcohol and caramel. Flavor adds barn yeast. Sweetish. Light to medium body. Malty and boozy aftertaste. Interesting but the novelty of the label wears off quickly. Thanks to jordanhumbert aka Santa.
