First time trying the Brew Kettle Winter Warmer and I am pleasantly surprised because I've never had a beer by this brewery that wasn't amazing! The same brewery tha has created White Rajah, Black Rajah, Kitka, and El Lupo Libre! All amazing beers and you can add this Christmas style winter warmer to that list as well. Amber in color and very light head and little to no lacing. Bursting with aroma and flavor of Christmas including honey, cinnamon, and a light orange/lemon citrus flavor on the back end. Very solid beer and I will for sure try this again next holiday season.

L: Nice brown with a tint of red.
S: This is what a beer is supposed to smell like. Very strong Ale-y scent, but not overwhelmingly christmas-y.
T: Not very hoppy, but that is good for an Ale like this. you can taste the orange and honey.
F: Smooth and heavy. Perfect for relaxing by the fire or watching the game.
O: An Above Average Xmas Ale in my book!

It has a nice rich taste with spices. I tasted cinnamon and some of the orange peel. Really enjoyed this beer.
