A - Pours a copper-gold with slight venetian red hues. The head is barley of white approaching the lightest levels of khaki. Head recedes quickly with no lacing (I'm sorry but does anyone really care about lacing? Like seriously, what the f. I could not think of a beer quality less interesting and varied to describe)
Ar - Mostly spices and malts with gingerbread being predominant.
T - Mouthfeel is nice and the beer is much lighter than any Christmas ale I've had before but the flavors keep it from being watery. The brown-sugar malts are very well balanced and do not make this on overly sweet beer.
D - Oh yeah, very drinkable and definitely would enjoy this with the family around the Christmas tree. If my wife didn't leave with the kids 6 Christmases ago. Drinking problem my ass, screw her I never said she had a make-up problem just cuz she needed it every day before leaving the house and going to work. And there's another thing that's overrated, WORK!
