5 Golden Rings is the 5th verse in our ’12 Days of Christmas’ winter seasonal ale series. This is the only golden ale in the bunch but it definitely packs a holiday punch. We spiced up this 11.5% ABV ode to Winter with cinnamon, allspice and ginger along with some delicious sweet and tangy pineapple.

750 ml bottle RS purchase. Color is a mostly clear orange with a tiny ring of head. Aroma is a metric ton of pineapple with light cinnamon.

Flavor is a lot of pineapple, an array of spices (cinnamon, nutmeg and Ginger) I really don’t enjoy ginger root and I have that flavor here. The body is medium the a sweet fruity finish. The ABV is pretty well hidden of course I can only taste pineapple and spice. I’m about to compare right against the Bourbon Barrel version. I hope the BBA gives this a better complexity.

Very nice BSA that had all of the good characteristics of the style with a winter twinge to it and the good thing, no Cardamom! Pineapple balances the spice with a bit of acidic sweetness.

Bottle split among friends. Aroma is like fruit juice and booze. Pour is cloudy orange with a white head that dies immediately. Taste is like the leftover juice in a can of fruit. Syrup. Sweet. With some booze. A lot of booze.

Split bottle at WOB. Pours a cloudy orange. Aroma of pineapple and spices. Reminds me of holiday clove and spice. Taste is pineapple, lots of spice. A bit wierd, can’t drink a lot.
