A special thanks to my friend Eric Evans for sending me this phenomenal Christmas Ale from his personal collection. I was so excited to receive it today – that I put it right in the fridge to cool down. This beer is so complex, with so many different delicious, spicy winter flavors – lots of ginger and cinnamon made me feel like I should be getting ready for Christmas Dinner! I have to warn you though, this beer is much better at a warmer temperature. I started off drinking it way too cold, and couldn’t taste all of the amazing flavors until the beer warmed some.
After having a taste of this delicious brew, I’m sad to know that it’s not distributed in VA. 😦 So, if you get Great Lakes Brewing Christmas Ale near you this holiday season, drink up and enjoy!
Thanks again to Eric – I wouldn’t have had the chance to taste this delicious beer or take a picture of its cap without your help!
