COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Once upon a frozen evening way up north, a sweet local honey named Holly inspired our Jolly Fat Man (as only Holly can) to create this festive spiced holiday ale. We think you will enjoy his holiday creation with it’s aromas and flavors of Christmas day. Sweet malt, ginger, honey and cinnamon spice. Sip this by the fire with your significant other. Who knows, maybe it will lead to a little inspiration of your own. From our Jolly Fat Man to yours, Happy Holidays.

Delicious seasonal ale. The cinnamon, citrus zest, and hops shine in this holiday warmer. Loved the name, too.

Nice Christmas ale. Rich honey aroma and flavor. Heavily spiced, but doesn't detract and meshes well with the honey. Peppery finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours a clear dark brown/copper with a medium off white head. Somewhat earthy fall aroma with some sweet notes from the honey and a slight nutty hints. This beer really tastes like christmas. It has just the right sweet and bitter. You can feel the spices in the medium body and clean texture. Very clean finish that is almost cinnomon with a hint of sweetness. This is a very good Christmas ale. I hope they don’t change a thing.
