Poured from the bomber from Costco. It’s terrible, aroma is got some kind of off flavor, flavor does too. It’s harsh, bleh

Yuck. Not memorable at all. No spices. Santa must've slipped down the chimney and snapped his neck and is wheel chair bound after approving this beer. Terrible after taste and again nothing to look forward toward or pay 14 dollars for 6. Don't bother. It's a boring waste.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Rating #1424 - 25.12.2014 - 1st Day of @beerblast #Beermas. Clear amber/toffee coloured pour with a bubbly white head. Aroma has a hint of malty sweetness, and a strong citrus/floral hoppy aroma. Medium carbonation. Bubbly, dry mouthfeel, medium-bodied. Light bitterness in the finish, quite smooth. Hoppy punch and a marbley-malty sweet note. Delicious.

Bottle. Pours an amber color with white head. Caramel, pine resin, conifer tip aromas. Heavy pine / spruce flavors with caramel, malty backbone. A decent beer, but just not a style I’m really into.

Pours a clear copper color with minimal lace and moderate carbonation. Aroma and taste have a nutty, caramel, and hop hint to them. Very bitter for a red ale.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a clear copper on tap with thin white head that leaves moderate lace. Aroma of earthy hops and slight caramel malts. Taste is more toward the hop, lingering bitterness, decent but nothing exciting.

Seriously Rogue?!? This is your Christmas beer? Man, what a disappointment. There is nothing Christmas about this mediocre amber ale. Seriously, this is a serious miss from a good brewer. Christmas! Brown ale, porter, or stout! 22oz bottle.

Clear copper with decent head. Found the hops over soapy though and overwhelmed the malts. Bit thin. A little toffee in there. I was disappointed as I usually like Rogue's beers.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Courtesy of Jaghana. Couleur cuivrée trouble, légère mousse. Nez caramel, fruité un peu confit et carared. Gout caramel, caramel blond, fruité, raisin, bonne amertume houblonnée florale avec note épicée. Bon corps. Fin longue amere.. Pas mal d’aromes mais peut etre pas assez "savoureuse" sur le palais pour etre nickel
