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.

Sampled on draft at Hou Thou this beer poured a hazy golden amber color with a small creamy orange-white head that lingered and left good lacing. The aroma was boozy apricot and pear. The flavor was tangy peach, apricot, alcohol, table sugar and pear. Long tangy and sour finish of apricot, pear, sugar and booze. Thick and full body. Excellent.

750 mL bottle from Beer Run, opened 12/30/13. Pours a murky orange color with a medium sized fizzy off-white head. Fair head retention. Aroma of pretty much straight pineapple orange banana juice with a slight bit of maltiness. The taste is tart citrus, tart pineapple, bready malts, mild spice, a bit of banana and a very slight bitter note. Medium bodied, slight booze. While I suppose this is technically a beer, it would pair much better with your morning bacon and eggs. I could pretty much approximate this with a glass of juice and a shot of vodka.

On tap at Beverage World for Christmas 2013. Pours a golden orange color with small head. Aroma is pineapple....wow is it pineapple. Maybe some ginger and other spices. Taste is super sweet. It's heavy on the palate. Great beer to try, but couldn't drink too much because of the sweetness and pineapple. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle opened on Christmas Eve. Golden with a white head (fitting). Overwhelming pineapple juice, belgian yeast, a bit of holiday spice, moderate+ carbonation, sweet fruity body, odd beer.

Harsh nutrasweet note on top of over ripened pineapples. Drinks like a vodka and pineapple juice, which I would never voluntarily drink.

Golden orange with a fruity sweet aroma. Spice and heavy fruit sugars make the cloying, but there is something I like about it. No need for more than one though.

On draught at Bailey’s Taproom. Deep golden color. Aroma is ginger, fruitcake, and pineapple. Taste is light ginger spicing, sweet caramel and cherry, and ripe pineapple. Sweet spiced pineapple lingers in the finish.

Golden orange pour with a soft head. Aroma is ginger, pineapple and sweet spices. Taste is too sweet. It has a cloying taste that hangs in the throat. I need a beer with a bitter bite!
