Paid around $1.99 for a single...
The beer pours a clear amber colored head, minimum head retention and no lacing on the glass. Aroma: Smells like Gingerbread cookies!!! Therefore, aromatic tones of ginger, caramel, hops, and toasted malts make for a wonderful aroma.
The taste is less balanced than what the aroma gives off. It is "chewing gum" heavy in the mouth with strong flavors of caramel flavored wheat bread, slight hop and moderate alcohol notes say that this beer isn't messing around. Very smooth in the mouth and drinkable at 6.9%abv, I will have another, but I only bought one?!? :(
Final Thought: It's definitely a fun beer that has many of the Christmas flavors one would expect.
Serving type: bottle
