12 oz bottle. A nice holiday ale from the always reliable Great Lakes. Try one on for size. altonbrownd (5897) - Chevy Chase, Maryland, USA - MAR 19, 2016
Bottle from Chevy Chase Wine and Liquors. Dark amber body with medium head. Nose is sour, fruity. Taste is malty, with cinnamon and spices for sure. Nice prickly texture. Solid warming finish. Enjoyable. MaltOne (380) - Wisconsin, USA - JAN 31, 2016
Pours a clear, light copper, brief white head. Light toasty aroma. Taste is lightly sweet, slightly spicey - ginger; a hint of peppery hops in the finish. Palate is light, but lingering. Overall, a light, easily drinkable holiday ale. Better crafted then some similar offerings.

This was the best of the winter ales I chose to try this year. Next year I’ll pass on seasonal ales completely I believe.
