Few things in this life make me happy. Days off from work. Hiking. USC Football. Good green cheeba (that's right, I said it....). And Alesmiths ale's.
Yulesmith is great. Great appearance, exceptional smell (malty sweetness combined with citrusy hops), and terrific taste. If anything detracts from the ale, its the heat of the alcohol, in my humble opinion. The heat just adds to the 'Winter Warmer' label, though. This ale is something to be treasured around the holidays. Similar to a DIPA, but way more flavor and way more cool aromas.
Check this one out. My favorite (along with Anchor Steam's Merry XMas and Happy New Year Ale) for the 2007 holiday season.

4.5/5 rDev +6.6%

Serving Type - 22oz bottle
Appearance - Golden tan, mellow yellow with a killer 3 inch thick, foamy head. Tons of sticky lacing.
Smell - Nice upfront citric, piney, grapefruit hops. Orange, some lemon, mild malt backbone. Sweet added sugars, along with some spices like coriander, lemon peel.
Taste - Right on par with aroma, big amounts of citric fruits featuring pine, grapefruit and orange. A bitter kick with some minor spices add a little zest behind tangerine and mango. A nice sugary note along with a caramel malt backbone.
Mouthfeel - Sweet tropical fruits along with some sugars coat the tongue. Palate gets more citric fruits, along with the caramel backbone. Aftertaste is minor bitter, tropical fruity.
Overall - Awesome. This should be a regular release. Really flavorful, nice amounts of hops and sweet sugars to create a nice smooth drink. Alcohol is hidden well and just adds to making this really pleasurable to drink.
