Notes/Commercial Description:
5 Golden Rings is the 5th verse in our '12 Days of Christmas' winter seasonal ale series. The only golden ale in the bunch, we spiced up the natural pause in the classic song with cinnamon, allspice and ginger along with the delicious sweet and tangy flavor of pineapple. The barrel aged edition has taken on notable flavors from the time spent in oak, adding a level of burnt wood, sweet boubron and under-ripe fruit.

Even when The Bruery's 12 Days series beers haven't been great, I've always been able to count on the barrel aged variety. Not this.

Sweet, thin bourbon juice. Sticky, cloying, without being full bodied. Hot and alcoholic, with dominant bourbon notes. I like bourbon, but this tastes watered down and spiked with fructose.

Just unpleasant, if not quite undrinkable.
