A: Deep copper in color, not much lacing or head.

S: Evergreen, pine, spruce

T: Wow, tons of pine and spruce in this. Some mint and a taste of gingerbread cookies.

M: Medium bodied and a lingering pine spruce finish

O:Very bold attempt by Southern Tier. The flavors are very in your face but they work well. Named perfectly since this does taste like a Christmas Tree. Bit of a spice bomb which I'm not usually a fan of but I could drink this again if the mood hits.

Served in narrow pint glass from the bottle (six pack).

Pour with a large head that quickly dissolved until a thin layer of foam was resting on top of the ale. Color was deep amber. No lace as beer was consumed.

Aroma of toasted malts, nutmeg, and gingerbread.

Slight alcohol taste. Also had hints of gingerbread cookies. Malty aftertaste.

Mouth feel was bold - slightly bitter and lightly carbonated.

Comparable to Great Lakes Christmas Ale, minus the hunt.
