3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: JUL 5, 2013 Draft at Manchester Pub. Pour clear copper color with tan head. Taste is malty and sweet and there’s a slight bitter hop component as well which is well balanced with the sweetness. Not bad.

Solid holiday brew. Nice, full and buttery. A little lacking in interest for me, but because of that, I don't get tired of it by the time I reach the bottom--might be reaching for my second one right meow.

Nice seasonal brew akin to Sierra Nevada celebration ale. Nice bouquet of flavors that would compliment any holiday festivity. Perhaps a bit too bitter for my personal taste.

Pours a clear amber color with great lacing. Aroma of caramel and spice with a very bitter hop flavor with hint of spice and sweetness. Decent.

Hops forward for style. Strongly reminiscent of Sam Adams Noble Pilsner. Getting a hint of the caramel malts and a hint of red ale type characteristics, but not the sweet candy taste advertised on the label, which is probably for the best- too many sugary tasting seasonals this time of year IMO.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Serving: Bottle from Wegmans Leesburg. It pours a ruddy color with a small off white head. Caramel nose with a little a little spiciness to it. A little sweet up front with a little fruitiness and a slight citrus hop note. Medium bodied with average carbonation. Not too bad.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Drinkstore, Dublin 
Light caramel brown, clear, frothy off white head that dissipates, some lacing. Aroma of brown caramel malts, soft sweet toffee, slight nuttiness. Taste of caramel malts, toffee, brown sugar, some bitter resinous hop, some soft red berries, toasted malt, mainly malty, soft flavours, alcohol well hidden. Palate medium carb and body, smooth. Finish of sweet caramel malts. Overall it comes across as a malty strong red ale, and is really easy going for the 7.2%.

Pretty straightforward amber ale. Not much jumps out as a seasonal other than the name.
