Mild flavor, smooth, subtle hints of spice. This will be my go to this holiday season.

On-tap at 3 Cellars, Franklin, WI:

Pours amber with a thin head. Some lacing sticks.

The smell is of "holiday spice" - cinnamon, nutmeg, orange peel, clove.

The spices blend together well. Not too overspiced, but certainly present. A firm malt backbone that is slightly toasted pulls the spices together. Honey sweetness mixes in. Alcohol warmth is noticeable in the finish, and adds more than detracts.

It is lager smooth.

A well-made, well-balanced (for the style) "Holiday" lager. The spices do grow as the beer warms. Alcohol is very well-integrated, adding a bit of "winter" warmth rather than "heat". Nicely done!
