Deep dark ruby brown hue with a big thicket of fine carbonated khaki tan head, fine even lacing. Aroma herbal mint, pine, citrus zest it's a joy to smell with mild spices noted as well nutmeg and cinnamon...always a great Christmas ale from Anchor. This is last year's though I've seen this year's out there already. Flavor like spiced christmas bread, and pine water very much a holiday ale it always holds up quite well with some age. Mouthfeel is medium bodied even flowing carbonation dry finish from the spruce and nutmeg notes I'm catching. Overall always a favorite will continue to pick up a six every year!
