Ruby brown pour, small off white head. Aroma is very bready, very malty, soft caramels, subtle cherry, and dark fruit notes. Soft carb, soft mouthfeel. Soft grassy hops, more bready malts, reminds me alot of an english strong ale.

Fell a little flat on the finish, and the spice notes are definitely more subtle than other cams ales. Good overall ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours a three-finger khaki head that fades quickly to a thin layer leaving some lace. Chrystal clear amber color. Good carbonation and medium bodied. Very light caramel and malty nose and flavor is toasted malt, light spices. Slight drying finish. The 12oz bottle was a gift.

Some caramel and some light roast. Not a lot going on otherwise. Watery on palate. Clear mahogany pour. Light sweet finish. Tap at whole foods.

Had this on tap poured into a pint glass. Pours a nice off brown color. The aroma of Christmas spices are not overpowering. A great christmas beer!

Muted malt sweet aroma. Taste is copper malt flavored which is not my thing but it’s not too abrasive. Really like the spices which are pretty gentle. Red copper color with a bit of white head. Clear. Thinnish body.

shrubber85 (11411) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - OCT 8, 2015
Bottle. Caramel malt, hay, and alcohol aroma. Dark amber with light tan head. Sweet caramel malt, moderate herbal hay, and alcohol flavor. Nice body. Bonus points for no spices.
