Red ales are growing on me. I believe this one is a holiday special edition seasonal. The spice taste is relatively mild, however, and it has a bit of hop to satisfy hopheads like me.

Received in a BIF and enjoyed this hoppy red. What made it really cool was the beer was canned on 11-25-15. The day my son was born and I became a dad.

Looks like canned November 6, 2015 enjoyed December 30, 2015 in a snifter.

Look - Head exploded with popped top and after weak pour. Light tan, large bubbled head. A lot of lacing because of that. Dark red amber body.

Smell - Caramel. Malt. Toffee. Raisin.

Taste - Malt. Caramel. Hop?

Feel - Doesn't sit well. Hairspray alcohol burn. Dry.

Overall - Hops are all but gone. Malty red ale.

12oz can (11/23/15 #146 date stamp) poured into a milkshake pilsner glass.

Appearance: Mostly clear dark copper-amber color. Initial 1/4" thick light tan foam died back to give a thin foam across the top and lots of lacing all over the glass - big sheets and strands. Nice looking beer.

Smell: Lightly hoppy - fresh cut citrus juice.

Taste: Solid piney hop flavor from start to finish with some toasted malt in the middle. The finish has a tiny bit of herbal character to it. A tiny bit pungent.

Mouthfeel: Good carbonation, a bit sticky on the teeth. A bit of a lingering spicy finish all over the mouth.

Overall / Drinkability: Given the style, it's a great looking beer, but nothing special flavor wise. Good, but not amazing. Easily drinkable though, but I'm not sure I'd want another.

If you're looking for a typical Christmas ale - one with nutmeg, cinnamon, spices, etc. - then this isn't the beer for you. This is a dry, hoppy red ale more akin to a dry Irish red ale - Smithwick's or something like that. All in all though, not a bad beer but definitely not remarkable.
