Great Lakes Christmas Ale brewed by Great Lakes Brewing Co., with an ABV 7.50% This brew pours out a light brown color with a nice white head. This is a filtered brew you can see right though it. The smell is rich with spices and grains. You also pick on some sweetness in the smell. The taste is bold with flavor, you pick up on the sweetness in this brew. You also pick up on the spies in this brew. The mouthfeel is nice, bold and clean. This brew has a nice balance to it for having an ABV of 7.50%, you can not tell the high ABV. There is nothing overpowering in this brew. Great Lakes Brewing Co, did a nice job with this one. I would buy this brew again. Thank You Great Lakes Brewing Co.
