A beautiful looking nut brown beer. Scent is fairly understated, a bit of cinnamon and nutmeg. Taste is similar, with a well balanced touch of hops and a solid malt backbone. I am wary of holiday beers but will definitely go back to this one.

A hopped up take on Anchor's Christmas Ale, basically. Better balanced than you might assume, but it doesn't quite come together.

Smells of chinook along with cinnamon and ginger. Tastes like it smells only with more pronounced malt toastiness: starting with a medium-strength hops, moving into a middle and finish that's basically like liquid gingerbread. The two stages are each good, but they're plainly separated from one another and even as the can comes to its end, there's still a marked lack of cohesion.
