Notes/Commercial Description:
Nutcracker Ale is Boulevard’s holiday gift for real beer lovers. This hearty, warming brew is a classic winter ale, deep amber in color, with hints of molasses balanced by the “spiciness” of freshly harvested Chinook hops.

I was happy to try this winter seasonal, since I'd never had it before and wanted to compare it to a couple of my other favorites in this style. It held up fairly well, and I'd buy it again. Good mix of traditional holiday flavors, and a bit higher alcohol content for when you're staying home and out of the snow.
