On tap at the Winking Lizard in Bedford, kindly purchased for me by my boss's boss. Cheers!

Amber beer served in a large 22 oz pint glass. Amber with a small white head.

Smells of cinnamon, ginger, something nasty I can't put my finger on. I've never been a fan of the smell of this beer.

Taste is a different story. Ginger, nutmeg, sweet caramel malt. A perfectly spiced winter beer. I'm from Cleveland, have come of age with this beer, and it's just something special.

Nice upbeat carbonation and medium-light body.

Classic X-mas beer. Great drinkability.

Serving type: on-tap
