This beer is retired; no longer brewed.

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 resulting ale is a true holiday treat that can be enjoyed fresh or cellared until 2019, when 12 Drummers Drumming will be released.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2.5

750 mL bottle poured into a tumbler. Reviewed from notes.

Appearance - Deep golden body with a large white head that settles to a single large island of foam in the middle.

Smell - Belgian sugars. Apples. Some tropical fruits. Booze. A variety of sugars.

Taste - Sharp fruity flavors. Harsh booze. Spices. Not as sweet as the nose suggested. Dry boozy finish.

Mouthfeel - Boozy and rough. Medium body. Kinda bitter.

Overall - Not loving this. Very rough, without the flavors to back it up.
