I have heard that Fritz has lost his passion for brewing and is pursuing other interests, and as a result the quality of his beer is in decline. Maybe so, though I hope not. In any event, "Our Special Ale" is still special, and it still evokes an immense amount of holiday spirit, at least with me. Deep, dark brown with ruby, and a full rich, tan head. Lovely. Roasted malt aromas, rich and warm, gently spiced. Juniper? Taste is slightly sweet, roasty-toasty malt, with a mild tang, gently spicy and medicinal. Mild carbonation. Easy bitterness like a warm blanket lingers on the tongue. Perhaps not as full as in years past, and certainly not as hoppy, but this is still a very nice way to welcome the season. (712 characters)
