COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Spicy and bold, a big Christmas cookie of a beer. Samuel Adams Old Fezziwig Ale is bursting with spices of the season. With a remarkably full body and flavor it helps those long winter nights pass more quickly. The rich taste hits the palate with a depth of malt character ranging from sweet toffee and caramel notes to dark, roasty chocolate notes. Then the spices come in full force. Cinnamon, ginger and orange peel dance on the tongue bringing with them the celebratory spirit of the season.

One of the best beers from the Boston Beer Company, too bad it only come in the winter sampler. Good nose and good head. Flavor is complex with caramel, cinnamon, chocolate, and hints of other flavors. Slightly bitter aftertaste overall a good beer.

UPDATED: DEC 28, 2006 Bottle. Not a bad seasonal from Sam Adams. Poured a nice dark ruby into the glass with a minimal light tan head. Nose of cinnamon, malts, yeast, sweet stollen and banana nut bread. Unfortunately the taste didnt keep what was promised to the nose. Malts, some orange peel, spices (mainly ginger). Still it was a decent brew! Merry Christmas!

For a darker beer this sure is light and easy drinking. Toffee and coffee notes. Great for a sample pack to enjoy different flavors.

Nice brown color, like a well worn penny. Nice size head that lasts with good lacing. Orange, spice and bread aromas. Nice spicey, sweet flavor with hints of orange, ginger and cinnamon. My favorite Christmas beer so far.

Fruity spice sent and ruby red color with a medium tan head. Spice and hop flavor that is suprisingly good. I think this is one of Sam Adam's best beers.

Nice spicy aroma...lots of scents are captured. This is one of the better selections in the winter pack. But you really would only want the 2 you get in the pack!!!

Great balance of spice, hop and malt. I like this beer, but somehow can only bring myself to drink one or two every season. Oh well, I guess that's why they call it a seasonal...

I rather like Old Fezziwig. I miss it. It is hoppy and spicy...quite pleasant in my opinion.
