A rich, hearty ale perfect for the holiday season with a malty sweetness and spicy hop character. The generous use of five different malts is responsible for the full flavor and high alcohol level of this beer Saint Arnold Christmas Ale is best consumed at 45į Fahrenheit.

A deep amber in appearance with a slightly spicy aroma. Taste malty and does have a warming amount of alcohol to it. Not as much spice in the taste as other seasonal.

Bought a bottle from Wilburs too. The color is a nice amber. Not much aroma, but what little it has is slightly tart. The flavor is pretty weak too. I donít get anything Christmas here, just another mehtastic ambery beer. Maybe I have a mishandled bottle?

Taste is good, with a medium body and pleasant bitterness. There is no lingering aftertaste and it is very smooth. The taste and palate are simple though and lack a little depth. Overall a good beer.

12 oz bottle from Wilburs. Spices, sweet malts and light bitter hops. Crisp and kind of bland with a dry, lingering finish.

Pour out of 12 oz bottle, orange red pour with white head, aroma brought notes of caramel, toffee, hints of spice, slight cinnamon, hints of slight grass in there as well. Taste is a mix of grass, spice, earth, touch of cinnamon, clove in there, lots of caramel, toffee, finishing bitter, slightly sweet.

Embarrassment of a beer. This is not an ale. Not even close. No head. Flat. Extremely malty. No carbonation. Terrible aftertaste. Zero flavor nor character. Itís like the cousin of Old English but for a lot more. Iím yet to find a St. Arnold that is adequate, if not for Karbach I wouldnít have wasted my time. I donít say this often but avoid this beer! Waste of money and time that I will never get back!!!

ttoadee (1082) - Austin, Texas, USA - NOV 26, 2013
Tan pour, quick cream colored head. Malt, molasses, and alcohol in the nose. Sweet. Middle is caramel & cherries. Finish feels the drying effect of the alcohol level.
