This was a delicious Christmas beer. Very flavorful and easy to drink. Felt amazing going down, and quite strong. Will definitely purchase again.

A: The beer is crystal clear light amber in color and has a light amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a short white head that left a thin layer of bubbles on the surface after it finally settled down.
S: Light to moderate aromas of spices are present in the nose.
T: The taste starts out with a little sweetness and finishes with spicy notes of cinnamon and ginger.
M: It feels medium-bodied and a little smooth on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: I thought that the taste of this beer had a good balance between the initial sweetness and the spiciness that follows.

Serving type: can

I got a 6pck of this from my local meijer. It poured a clear amber with no head and no lace. The scent had ginger and cinnamon hints. The taste was nicely balanced and easy to drink with xmas spices, frankincense and myrrh. The mouthfeel was lighter in body with subtle carbonation. Overall it's an ok beer.

Collaboration with Brewnuts Donuts & Beer. 12oz can poured into a tulip. Pours a hazy glowing burnt orange; small off-white head that fades leaving decent retention and okay lacing. The aromas have lots of ginger leading the way. Some cinnamon and spices. Some caramel. Some orange, lemon and lime. Malts are there. The flavors follow the nose. More ginger leading the way. More orange, lemon and lime in the mix. Some cinnamon and caramel. Spice notes in the finish. It's not too sweet. Malts do their thing. Alcohol goes unnoticed. Mouthfeel is on the lighter side of medium-bodied with moderate to low carbonation. It's very fluffy and smooth.

This is an alright brew. I'm picking up ginger more than anything, although the spices do their thing. It's nothing too crazy, but it's not bad at all.

I've become a big fan of Platform brews, and though I used to live around there, I still haven't been to their pub. I need to correct that, and I need to get more of the Holiday Donut Cookie. It's damn festive!

It pours like a brown ale based spice ale but lighter and more orangy. The aroma is nicely balanced cookie and donut (maple?) that also permeates the taste. The finish is slightly boozy.

Highly recommended.
