Bottle. Another winter beer, how did I get so many of these? Blah. Spices and shit, pretty average

BVery (5616) - Burnsville, Minnesota, USA - FEB 18, 2013
Bottle from Lizardville Rocky River. Clear amber pour with basically no head. The cinnamon, honey, and orange are all very present in their individual components. Pretty cool how easy it is to pick each out in this one. A little bit of caramel sweetness at the back end of the taste. Tasty stuff.

Elwood (2960) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - JAN 12, 2013
Serving: 12 oz. bottle via trade from Cliff. Thanks Cliff! It pours a deep amber color with a small, light tan head. The nose is fruity with slight ginger, spiced bread, and candied orange notes. Malty and sweet on the tongue with a good dose of orange, ginger, light cinnamon, and dark bread. Medium to full body with a good bit of softer carbonation and a short to medium finish. A little sweet for my taste, but decent.

Nephilium (1261) - Ohio, USA - JAN 6, 2013
This beer starts with a mild aroma of honey and spice. It pours a clear reddish-amber, with a full off white head. This has a slight sweetness to it, as well as the Christmas spices that find their way into most Cleveland Christmas beers. Slightly slick mouthfeel, with no alcohol noticeable. A nice drinkable spiced Christmas beer.

Lukaduke (1753) - Portland, Maine, USA - JAN 1, 2013
{Pours a deep copper color with a traces of foam that quickly dissipates. On the nose there is some spicy sweet caramel with light touches of citrus. The palate follows closely with a round caramel body that is heightened by some floral honey notes, seasonal spice and a touch of bitter citrusy notes in the finish.

Chudwick (1790) - Cincyucky, Kentucky, USA - DEC 24, 2012
12oz bottle - pours amber with tan head. Nose is spicy caramel. Flavor adds alcohol, citrus and potpourris. Sweetish. Alcohol bite gets stronger as it warms.

phaleslu (5875) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - DEC 22, 2012
12 oz. bottle. Pours a clear ruby-amber with virtually no head. Aroma of rosemary, pine, sweet malts, and cherry. Flavor of ginger, pepper, rosemary, gingerbread, dried fruits, and a hint of honey. Light-medium bodied with low carbonation and a smooth mouthfeel. Decent winter ale.

drewaha (129) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - DEC 19, 2012
Pours a medium brown with little head. Smells of rosemary and black pepper. Well balanced taste. Not too sweet with a tinge of bitterness on the way down. Nice winter beer

DoublEE (784) - South Euclid, Ohio, USA - DEC 18, 2012
The beer poured a dark amber which was clear and sparkling and had a loose but plentiful head atop it. Aroma was of holiday spice...nutmeg, all-spice, and maybe a touch of cinnamon. Flavor was also spicy, but also offered a hefty dose of maltiness that was neither overly sweet nor cereal-y. Mouthfeel was a bit thick and appropriate. I thought this beer to be quite good.

A Christmas Ale from the Brew Kettle in Strongsville Ohio. A nice spicy note on the nose, with cinnamon and citrus peel, with subtle amber and honey notes. Pours a nice brown with a thin head, goes down easy and finishes crisp and clean. Great!
