4/5 rDev +11.7%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4
Appearance: 1 inch head, high carbonation, orange-brown in color, hazy
Smell: cherry, bread, dark fruit, and holiday spice
Taste: earthy pale malt malt, cherry, bread, dark fruit, and holiday spice
Mouthfeel: medium body, sweet with slight earthy bitterness especially at the end, high carbonation
Overall: A bit more pale than I would have expected and I got more winter warmer here than Scottish ale. That said I like the spice combination. A good not great beer that I would get a six pack of each holiday if it were available here.
Serving type: bottle

Pours a murky amber color with a two inch head. Lacing lingers on the glass. The aroma and the taste of this brew combines of toasted bready malts, slight fruity hop flavors and some spice type flavor. Medium body with some carbonation. Goes down smooth too. A decent ale, but nothing spectacular though.

A: Poured from a growler into a pint glass. Body is coppery-amber with an off-white/khaki-colored head. Good sheets of lacing left behind.
S: Some sort of spiciness over caramel malt. Ginger perhaps?
T: Modest cereal-grainy malt foundation, then some earthy spices: ginger and cinnamon come to mind. Reminds me of a gingerbread cookie, which I guess is appropriate for the style/theme.
M: Light-to-medium in heft with decent carbonation. Thinnish for the style.
O: OK. Nothing offensive about this one, but it doesn't blow me away either.
Serving type: growler
