Served in narrow pint glass from the bottle (six pack).

Pour with a large head that quickly dissolved until a thin layer of foam was resting on top of the ale. Color was deep amber. No lace as beer was consumed.

Aroma of toasted malts, nutmeg, and gingerbread.

Slight alcohol taste. Also had hints of gingerbread cookies. Malty aftertaste.

Mouth feel was bold - slightly bitter and lightly carbonated.

Comparable to Great Lakes Christmas Ale, minus the hunt.

Im rating this expecting a Christmas beer. It looks like a Christmas cookie and smells like Christmas. Huge smells of clove with hints of orange cinnamon and malts. It 's got a nice spice kick with the clove up front followed by the orange, cinnamon and the ginger that rounds out the spices. It has a slight bitterness as well from some hop usage.

Very malty on top of all the spices. This is an excellent, excellent Christmas beer. I'm very impressed with everything they listed on the label is actually is in the taste as well. This at the Christmas dinner table would be a great addition. Good job Southern Tier.
