My go-to winter seasonal. And, I think, for good reason.
Sierra Nevada Celebration Ale
I don't know if I'm seduced by the best label I've ever seen, but this beer reminds me of winter. Cozy, warm, and exclusive. Fresh hop? I don't know. Reminds me a lot of, well...every other Sierra offering. Malts are (thankfully) present, and well-balanced. You can taste the alcohol, but don't be scared. Strong hop bitterness only warms the mild alcohol presence. In my mind, celebration's achievement is in balance. This isn't a hop bomb. While the hops greet you initially, the malty smoothness leaves a strong residual sweetness. Taste. Warmth. Happiness. Friends and family, that's what the holiday season is -and should be- all about.
