COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This chestnut-red spiced ale was brewed special for this holiday season. Our yuletide brew is created using a joyful blend of honey, cassia, clove, and ginger. We finish this brew off with a hint of coriander and orange peel.

Tap. Pours clear red orange, medium creamy tan head, dissipates slowly, great lacing. Aroma is spices, cardboard, ginger, clove. Flavor is odd, medium sweet, spiced, pumpkin, light bitter, lingering aftertaste. Medium body, creamy mouthfeel. Meh.

Aroma: Lots of sweet spices--ginger, clover, etc. Appearance: Dark copper color with a rich tan head that leaves a lot of lacing. Taste: Light sweetness shifting to a medium sourness almost instantly. Palate: Medium body, creamy texture, soft carbonation, long finish. Overall: A bit too sour and cloying for a holiday brew. Wretched aftertaste. Very disappointing.

On tap at RRBC. Nice chestnut color, medium fizz. Sweet ginger and festive spices, not too bitter, orangy at the end. Really enjoyed this seasonal beer.

On tap at the brewpub. Deep red color, medium white head. Aroma of malt and honey. Tastes of malt and honey as well, and also of ginger and some other spices. Fairly full mouthfeel, medium carbonation. A very good holiday brew.
