Pours a burnt orange with adequate head and plenty of lacing. Aroma is of malty scotchy goodness. Hop and malts on frt end with smooth short finish
Malt forward. Odd spicy notes. cloves? I didn't care for it because of the spices.
Sorry, I had to upload these old ratings. They were for me, not for uploading. And also I need 75 characters, hence this sentence.

UPDATED: AUG 7, 2017 It's maybe not as bad as it's been rated before. It's got great drinkability and it's a decent scotch Ale. The malts are nice and the Hops give a fun piney character to a Christmas beer. Overall though it just lacks complexity and a real incredible flavor. Utterly drinkable, but falls a little short. bwy (94) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 19, 2017
Nothing Christmas stands out. Extremely misleading. In terms of a Scotch Ale, it works.

Helles leicht trübes braun schöner schaum, im Geruch viel Getreide malzig süß würzig, im Geschmack würzig malzig süsslich aber auch herb saurer Abgang , ok aber nichts so tolles DrNosha (2516) - Württemberg, Germany, GERMANY - MAY 6, 2017
12oz Flasche. Hellbraunes Bier mit flüchtigem Schaum. Laut Edikett ein Scottish Ale. Es riecht nach geschrotetem Korn. Antrunk Körner und Malz. Recht schlicht.

Pours a copper color with a very light khaki head. Caramel and toffee nose with a hop note or two. Heavy mouthfeel. Rich caramel flavor. Finishes with a bit of hoppiness. voyageurmike (476) - Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 23, 2017
12 oz bottle from liquor store in Macon. No way this is a legit Scottish ale. Copper colored with spicy caramel sweet taste, and mildly cloying finish. Not awful but surprisingly not up to the standard of this brewery. HuskerTan (2323) - Ravenna, Nebraska, USA - MAR 6, 2017
A- Caramel, malty, spices.
A- Copper color, clear liquid, off white head.
T- Malty, caramel, spice.
P- Medium body, average texture, average carbonation, boring finish.
O- More like a scottish ale than a scotch ale for sure. Pretty boring and maybe one of the least exciting beers I’ve had from Bells. crajun (1257) - , Texas, USA - FEB 27, 2017
maybe my least favorite Bells. not much spice. not quite a Scottish ale either. some toffee, some bitter; over carbonated. not much flavor sinfull (1728) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - FEB 20, 2017
Copper color. Average, yellowish head. Aroma of malt , toasted bread and caramel. Malty taste. Bread in aftertaste. An unusual beer for winter seasonal . Very drinkable.
