3.93/5  rDev +3.4%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

This was poured from the bottle into a tulip glass.

A - deep amber color with a thick foamy head that is well retained

S - sweet malt aroma followed with some yeast fruitiness; some slight hop accents

T - sweet malt dominates with some yeast fruity character; there are some hops lurking and it finishes a little dry (styrian goldings used?)

M - medium-light body with high carbonation

D - This was a decent Christmas beer, I like the subtle hop accents in it. However, I don't think I could have more than one per session - based on the sweetness.

sampled from a 330ml bottle: Pours deep caramel with ruby highlights. Fluffy, off white, two finger head adorns the top of the glass. Aromas of candy sugar, dark fruit with sweet floral aroma. First taste is a bit sweet, with honey flavors. Then out of nowhere comes a strong herb flavor, which reminds me of a Chirtmas tree (The Shelton Brothers website says they use a special aromatic herb from the region of the brewery?). The aftertaste of this herb is a bit funky and it really dries out the mouth. Nothing special on this one, in fact it is tough to finish the 330ml bottle.
