5 Golden Rings is the 5th verse in our 12 Days of Christmas winter seasonal ale series. This is the only golden ale in the bunch but it definitely packs a holiday punch. We spiced up this 11.5% ABV ode to Winter with cinnamon, allspice and ginger along with some delicious sweet and tangy pineapple.

Bottle thanks to Lee. Pours a cloudy orange with small white head. The aroma is pineapple, oak, cinnamon. Medium mouthfeel with strong fruit, booze, ginger and sweet finish. Very Good.

P: Dark golden apricot body with a decent crown of white creamy head that bubbles down to a thin silky layer. Wet lacing around the edges. S: Overpowering pineapple booze, tropical bubblicious gum, powdery yeast, ginger, white grapes, hints of honey, black pepper, allspice and cinnamon. Banana esters appear once agitated. T/M: Odd! Pineapple juice, lemon zest, a hefty dose of allspice, pickled ginger, clove and black pepper. Mouthfeel is amazingly smooth and creamy with just a pinch if stinging carbonation. Finish is semidry with cinnamon apple peels lingering in the back of the throat. Similar to drinking hot apple cider. Booze was not as abrupt as the smell and highlights the flavors. O: 5 rings of oddness. At first I hated this beer. The first smell and taste almost caused me to grab something else. But it really opened up once it warmed and had a chance to breathe. The pineapple is the elephant in the room that actually works to an extent. This is an interesting take on the style and I cant say I hate it. I would like to see how this one ages for the next 7 years. May have to hunt another one down. Cheers!

Pours a hazy golden color with a small but well retained head and some lacing on the glass.

The aroma is inviting, its spicy with plenty of ginger & cinnamon, only lightly fruity with some cool funkiness that is akin to a damp towel thats been chilln for a few days in an environment where it doesnt dry out...
The flavor is really sweet, like some sort of spiced pineapple juice. Its got some light bitterness, ginger, and booze. Just a lot going on, some of it I dig, some of it I dont dig.

Probably not a shelf beer anymore.

Sampled on draft at Hou Thou this beer poured a hazy golden amber color with a small creamy orange-white head that lingered and left good lacing. The aroma was boozy apricot and pear. The flavor was tangy peach, apricot, alcohol, table sugar and pear. Long tangy and sour finish of apricot, pear, sugar and booze. Thick and full body. Excellent.

750 mL bottle from Beer Run, opened 12/30/13. Pours a murky orange color with a medium sized fizzy off-white head. Fair head retention. Aroma of pretty much straight pineapple orange banana juice with a slight bit of maltiness. The taste is tart citrus, tart pineapple, bready malts, mild spice, a bit of banana and a very slight bitter note. Medium bodied, slight booze. While I suppose this is technically a beer, it would pair much better with your morning bacon and eggs. I could pretty much approximate this with a glass of juice and a shot of vodka.

On tap at Beverage World for Christmas 2013. Pours a golden orange color with small head. Aroma is is it pineapple. Maybe some ginger and other spices. Taste is super sweet. It's heavy on the palate. Great beer to try, but couldn't drink too much because of the sweetness and pineapple. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
