Pretty basic. Not much flavor, in general, but really bland for a Christmas Ale.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Poured from the bottle into a pint glass to drink. The beer had a cloudy amber color with some sediment and a creamy tan head with good retention. Its aroma featured a blend of caramel and barley malt along with some lighter grainy and grassy hops. The taste was lightly sweet and malty with a bit of coffee, along with some modest bitter and sour grainy tones. It was a fairly wet and watery beer with a lighter mouthfeel and lower carbonation.
