The best Sam Adams beer I've had so far! It really feels like a holiday drink going down.

I like this just a little bit less than Boston Lager.

Trying hard to be a Vienna perhaps? Not enough spice (or fruit) to be considered in this style, but where else to put it? Fairly bland dark amber lager, maltish aroma with faint hints of cinnamon, nutmeg and citrus, toned down for the mass market. Trying to do too much while catering to the macrobrew market....
