Draft at Shoeless Joe’s. Hazy reddish-orange with a creamy beige colored head. Medium lace on the glass. Aroma is full of Christmas spice mix. Flavor is the same with a clean earthy/pine hop underneath. Solid. Gruffyboy (41) - - DEC 2, 2015
Not really a fan of spiced beers but this was nice enough. Reddish pour, head quickly dissipated. Some malty booze, a bit of spice. Not bad.

Strong hops that go down easy. Nice spice blend that go well with the hop selection. Cousin_Larry (895) - - NOV 28, 2015
I like Christmas beer. Especially this one. Good ginger and orange peel flavor. Out of commentary now. JaBier (8112) - Capital City, Ohio, USA - NOV 28, 2015
Pint at Winking Lizard Crosswoods on 11/25/15. Pours clear red with a medium beige head. Aroma of malt, orange, piney hop and slight spice. Malty and caramelly flavor with cinnamon character before a bitter, piney hop finish.

Draft to taster at Revolution. Pours a clear reddish amber color with a medium sized off white head. The aroma and flavor have toasted malts, a splash of caramel, bigger Christmas spices that has a heavier dose of ginger, the orange peel kicks in, but I didn’t care for the ginger. seuinoz (260) - Glen Ellyn, Illinois, USA - NOV 16, 2015
Very bland. Hardly a Christmas ale, just a ale. No taste of spices like a Christmas ale should have. Not a good Christmas ale better ones out there Ahuth (623) - Illinois, USA - NOV 16, 2015
Can. Dark copper has a light taste. Not a very bold taste. Very light. Has a nice spicy hop taste. Decent ale. kirk36 (223) - Peabody, Massachusetts, USA - NOV 14, 2015
I don't taste the spices, Clark! The twinkly lights aren't twinkling Clark! Thanks for noticing , ED! Plain as day, indistinguishable from an unlabeled ale from Lost. Where's the orange? Coriander? Where? I don't taste any of it. But, positives: easy to drink, higher alcohol, and it's ok.

12oz can (courtesy of Headbanger) poured into a Shaker at 40°. Color is a deep hazy amber with good carbonation and a rocky off white head. Aroma of toffee and fresh hops. It has a medium body with a smooth mouth feel. Flavor is dried fruits, toffee and citrus backed by a nice bitterness. After taste is orange zest and spice. Overall this is a very good holiday brew with easy drinking bold flavors.
