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

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. ���� ---Rat via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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.

FIstmas is a red copper clear brew with a head of tiny tan bubbles. The aroma is pine needle hops and just a bit of caramel sweetness. Taste is just a bit of decent roasted malt, then a nice hit of nutmeg and a few other spices that resolve into just a touch of hop bitterness at the end. The texture is fluid and just a bit lively. a very nice version of a winter beer.

Color is a sunset red, clear, white cap with spotty lace. Some fruit and candy caramel aroma, almost candycane , minty. sweetish with fruit notes. Taste is same, with a bit of dry alcohol. Malty mostly with sweet fruit tones.Ginger and orange probably but kind of an unidentifiable spices thing.Peppery and orange like I guess. Not big on holiday ales but pretty good for one.
