ok these guys say that this beer is only 4% but if u do as I did and go to the liquor store it is 8.5 alc by vol. its in a bigger bottle. then its counter part the version that you see in the store that is 4%. just wanted people to know that there is a better version of it with little more boost.

Pours a nice clean/clear golden orange color, nice carbonation, nice one-finger creamy white head, with some nice sticky lacing to follow. The nose is malty, with some nutmeg, cinammon. The taste is malty, sweety, with nutmeg/cinammon, and caramel. Medium body. Drinkable, a tasty little brew.

Malty aroma has a strong spicy overtone, cloves and coriander with hints of cinnamon and orange. Pours a clear amber with a nice, if not too persistent, fluffy off-white head. Spice dominates the malty flavor, cloves, coriander, cinnamon, a hint of ginger, a touch of orange. Texture has about average firmness and fizz. Nothing outstanding, but heck, Happy Holidays, and whatever you celebrate, may it be merry and joyful!
