Pours a dark red with a thin off white head, actually very Holiday. Aroma is sweet cinnamon, nutmeg, reminds me of a sweet spiced Christmas fruit cake. Taste same as aroma with some mild hops bitterness. Palate is a medium body with good carbonation. Finishes with sweet cinnamon, nutmeg, sweet spices of fruit cake, and maybe some brown sugar and a bit of nutty flavor on the end as it warms up. Overall fairly good drink

I am not a fan of any spiced beer no matter the occasion and sadly this beer falls dead square in that category. The immediate aftertaste is a mouthful of cinnamon that masks everything else. Its a gimmicky beer and that's just not for me. There are any number of other REALLY good beers on tap at Hoppin Frog that deserve your attention. This is not one of them.

i am usually one to drink very seasonally. i try to at least, makes me feel more in tune with my surroundings and with nature and generally keeps me on an even keel. drinking a strong christmas ale in late june is not something that usually happens, but a friend broke out this bottle with a little age on it, and wow, if ever there is a holiday ale versatile enough to work in hot summer weather, its this one. so much fresh ginger on the nose and late palate, that even the cinnamon and honey spice and sweet complex on it doesnt interfere, weigh it down, or make it only worth drinking when the snow flies. i found it almost refreshing, and through its clear amber body, i was amazed how much and how vibrantly the ginger came through. first class all the way, with just enough spicing to make me look forward to the holidays without making me overlook the present. carbonation is really aggressive, and the alcohol is well hidden. time has done this well no doubt, its so smoothed out texture wise as well, its just plush and round and surprisingly not real sweet. almost reminds me of the tropics in this weather, and i have to say, i was shocked how much i really got off on this, given the season. as good as any beer from hoppin frog, i hope to be able to procure some more of this around holiday time. the ginger makes it like not other beer for that season, at least not this pleasantly. awesome drink.
