Love this beer each and every year. Perfect balance of hops and malt and should be considered a household favorite of beer drinkers throughout the holiday season.

Decent beer. Not quite worthy of the reverence it receives, in my opinion. Nice and hoppy but has a bit of a metallic flavor that I find in most SN beers. It's good, but nothing special.

Beautiful beer. Foamy head, excellent hoppy smell, not too bitter-hoppy, yet smooth taste. My favorite Christmas beer gets a 5 this Christmas Eve.
