12 oz undated bottle poured into a pint glass.
Pours a nice clear medium amber with less than 1 finger of bone head. Head has good retention and lacing.
Somewhat sweet aroma featuring caramel (?) malts.. More toasted malt than hops, but hops are detectable.
Taste is good but quite mild, although the finish is a little bolder and more toasted than anticipated.
M - smooth with good carbonation level.
O - rather blase offering, particularly for something called a "Christmas Ale", but should appeal to many people, especially fans of amber ales.
Serving type: bottle
