look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4.5

Served on tap into a nonic glass

A- Poured a clear light golden color with soapy white head that left minimal lacing.

S- Big ginger, honey, and some light cinnamon notes.

T- Big fresh ginger, honey sweetness, some cinnamon and nutmeg notes.

M- Lighter bodied, low carbonation, does not finish dry or very clean.

O- This beer is the closest thing in taste and aroma to a personal Holiday favorite in Great Lakes Christmas Ale that I have had since moving to the West Coast. Not as full bodied as that beer or complex as that beer, but this was a treat to have in December.
