Now this is good. My first sip of any Christmas beer is always tentative - you never know what the spice load is going to be. This is a warm, soft on the tongue, drinkable Christmas Ale. That 12 oz. went down as easy as anything I've had in the last month.

Pours a light amber brown color with a white head. The aroma smelled of hops, caramel, toffee and citrus (more hops). The taste had a solid sugary caramel malt base but also a big dose of piney, citrusy hops. Solid bitterness and a nice well rounded beer. Reminds me of hopped up american amber ale which I guess is what this is. I didn't get any spices or anything, just a straight ahead hoppy winter seasonal and pretty good. Worth snagging, I got to try it ontap.
