Living in the Cleveland area, I'm almost duty-bound to absolutely love this beer. Pretty much every person I know here freaks out around late October when the Great Lakes Brewing Company announces the street date for this perennial favorite.
But I'm a different breed of cat -- different, not one of the crowd. Oh, who am I kidding? I'm a follower like the rest. For crying out loud, Budweiser is one of my favorite go-to beers. This Christmas Ale, like most Christmas ales out there, just puts waaay too much shit in there. Honey? OK, I dig honey in my beer. Cinnamon? Uh...OK, sure. Ginger? What the hell is this? A mai tai?
I guess the faults of this beer really do come down to personal preference. I need to be able to drink at least four beers without feeling like I've already eaten an entire meal.
