Pours a hazy deep orange-ish color with a small white head. In the aroma, ginger, mellow all spice and cinnamon. In the taste, ginger, all spice, cinnamon, and a sweet caramel like roast. A spice bite and a medium bodied mouthfeel, with a small ginger and spice like aftertaste. Big on ginger, and big spices across the board, and it hides the alcohol.

Serving type: on-tap

The Festivas Ale is Market Gardens version of the Christmas Ale....The beer poured a nice deep amber with white head that laced. The smell included cinnemon, egg nog and spice. The taste absolutely followed the smell....I believe there was some vanilla extract in it as well. The mouthfeel was a full bodied ale with good carbonation. Overall this beer rivals the Great Lakes Christmas Ale...these two breweries in teh West Side Market (for all you old schoolers) area are going toe to toe and the winner is the beer lover cuz each is stepping up their game!!! Yeah Baby!
