This is a seasonal beer that’s brewed with ‘Christmas cheer’ as the bottle says. Along with some cinnamon, barley and hops of course.
A bottle of this brew will put you back a mere $2.90 and is available at most LCBO’s. It’s ABV is only 5%, which for a winter beer isn’t too shabby at all.
Appearance: Brown ruby colour with a creamy head that fades fast.
Aroma: Cinnamon and hops. Standard ruby ale smell if you took out the cinnamon.
Taste: Way more cinnamon and maybe wheaty taste. Dark with richness to it. Reminds of a complex soda. Mouth feel is thick but soft.
Aftertaste: Malty but doesn’t last long. A little sweet.
Overall: A very enjoyable and festive beer. Something to dive into when you’re sick of the family.
