Notes / Commercial Description:
It seems that everyone knows the story of the Three Kings. Sent to follow the star in the sky each brought a gift for the baby they sought. One King brought Gold, the other Frankincense and the other Myrrh. Many breweries produce a Christmas Seasonal beer and this is our beer to celebrate the holiday season.

Draft Dec. 2008, softer & sweeter malt character than bottled version. Also more bready and sugary.

Pours hazy amber/orange with slight neon quality, generous white head retains well

Nose is musty lighter fruits.

Palate is tangy fruit, rich malt, alcohol, and hops at the back of the palate.

Finish is long and again tangy fruit with some alcohol warmth.
