An overall solid and respectable but unspectacular beer. It's got a good, mild spice flavor to begin with, but the back end is thin and watery. Just not a lot of body to this, but it is highly drinkable and the up front flavor keeps it palatable. Feels less than the sum of its parts, I would be interested to try the higher ABV version of this.

Glad I didn't buy a 4-pack.

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!
