Did a beer swap of another Great Lakes beer for a Christmas Ale. Went from bottle to tall chilled glass. Great pour, about 1/2 inch of head on it. Smell is winter seasonal (cinnamon) but not over powerful. Feel is a little effervescent but not over done. If you are a Troeg's Mad Elf fan you are expecting to get beat up on the flavor (it is only 7.5% ABV as compared to 12.5%, but it is smooth. Beer goes down nicely. Not my favorite from Great Lakes, but I do like them all!
