look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a Sam Adams cup

A- Reddish orange, 1" fluffy off white head

S- Citrus, floral, metal, bready malts

T- Malt bomb, toffee, caramel, berries, orange, sweet bready malts

M- Medium bodied, crisp carbonation

O- A nice brew, lots of malty goodness, never to sweet, never watered down, it's just a solid example of the style. I'm done complaining about the metallic twang, it seems all sam adams malty holiday beers have it and it's most likely a house recipe thing.
