The can I was gifted is a little late in the season and it held up pretty well. I'm looking forward to trying a fresher one next year.

A - Dark orange body, hazy, with a short but persistent off-white head, full tiny lacing.

S - Strong notes of pine and caramel. A bit of aspirin hinting at the bitterness.

T - Mostly pine and malty soft roll flavors, bitter bite in the close, and a definite tea aspect.

M - Brisk, with a dry close.

O - An interesting hybrid of a traditional malty brew and a pungent hoppy ale. Decent.

Appearance - Pours semi transparent dark brown with a thick light tan head with lots of lacing around the glass.

Aroma- Light spices up front some, some orange peel, malt and light floral hops along with some caramel.

Taste - Floral bitter hop forward with some biscuit, malt and caramel coming through after.

Feel - medium bodied well carbonated dry bitter finish.

Overall - a decent amber the bitter hops and orange peel slightly overpower any malts.

12oz canned 10/17/17 poured into a can glass at fridge temp 6% ABV 48 IBU. The beer pours bright reddish amber with abundant light khaki head.
The head recedes to a ring and thick island leaving lacing down the glass. The aroma is a little citrus & pine over caramel malt. The taste is caramel malt first with a good dose of bitter pine tar on the back end. There is a slight herbal undertone in the aftertaste. Mouthfeel is thin to medium bodied, well carbonated, and dry except for some hoppy stickiness. There is no sweetness from the malt at any point. Overall, good. They list this as a hoppy holiday ale. I was hoping for something malty with a little heat, but that's my bias. Still a pretty good and would be easy to drink 6.

This beer had a bittery finish that really overwhelmed the taste of it. It's not a bad beer but also not really a great one either. It's just really too hoppy and the bitterness does overwhelm what taste there is.

look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

Appearance: Arrives an auburn verging on mahogany with a one inch cap that leaves a few strands behind

Smell: Toffee tones buttressed by coffee and chocolate

Taste: The toffee base emerges, up front, with notes of chocolate, coffee, nuts and molasses; somewhat fruity, through the middle, with spices emerging, after the swallow; moderately sweet finish

Mouthfeel: Medium to full body with moderate carbonation

Overall: Complex for an amber ale, with some Christmas spicing but not a beer that I would seek out again
