Pours a ruby Amber color. Has a light holiday spice and malt aroma. Flavor is malty, smooth, a little sweet and has a holiday spice flavor. Overall a nice Christmas ale.

This Cleveland beer just didn't live up to my expectations. Honestly it's all in the smell. I can't get the slight vomit odor out of my nose. It's very smooth and has a decent honey flavor but it just doesn't do it for me.
