Flavor moderate sweet and light to moderate bitter, average duration. Light to medium body, oily, soft carbonated. Moderate in alcohol. Fine balanced Christmas ale.

750ml bottle. A very drinkable beer. Spices are almost absent until the end. Malty and very sweet. Not a Christmas beer in my mind, it doesnt warm me like a true Jule brew. However I will be buying some more, but maybe not at Christmas!

UPDATED: APR 10, 2007 Clear golden amber with an off-white diminishing head. Very sweet and malty. Also aromas of fruits, whiskey and metals. Full bodied and creamy. Long dry, vinous finish. A bit too sweet; but then again, it is a christmas beer.
