Cascadian Christmas Ale is becoming an annual Christmas release for LBC. It's a big warming malty beer with orange, citrus, and spices over a very dark -- deep brown to almost black -- translucent malty beer. Huge hops over the top of the dark malt. Mouthfeel is medium: almost too light for the style. As the beer warms, tannins and that oh-so-colorfully described volatile thiol emerge that lends a little feline quality.

Hugely improved from last year's Christmas ale with a big, bitter hop and astringent ending.

From LBC's description:
"We’ve got a very special Cascadian Christmas Ale that will feature a solid base of IdaPils, crystal and de-husked carafa malts along with generous doses of a couple of classic American hops: Cascade and Chinook. We’ll be upping the citrus quotient of this brew with additions of sweet orange peel, bitter orange peel, lemon peel and toasted whole coriander and then wrap the whole thing up with dry hop doses of Cascade and Chinook hops."
