This one is actually called "seasonal ale" which is sort of a euphemism for "winter ale" which is sort of a euphemism for Christmas ale. Not that I mind except that lawnmower lite is a seasonal beer as well...just not this season.
This is the 2006 bottling of Anderson Valley's Yule brew which I suppose I should really be having in a couple of days if I was being properly Druidical. It pours butterscotch with a fine pine-plank coloured cream white rim and foam. There is rich biscuit and caramel in the malt, an arch of orange with a restrained cinnamon and nutmeg dusting on the finish. Not tremendously complex but very well balanced care of a creamy yeast profile.
A respectable 95% of BAers give their support.
