Christmas beers are something special especially for the season. I have tried several good ones but some are better than others. This on in particular is decent at best. Flavors of caramel, grassy hops, biscuit bread, cinnamon, minor mango, little bit of apple and grapefruit, some all spice, and minor notes of pecan pie. It is an amber ale that has some delicious flavors, not too overwhelming, pretty spicy and sweet. If you like amber ales, you may find some nice sweetness to it but nothing mind blowing as I thought originally. The idea is pretty bad ass though, just like the Giant Robot pulling the sleigh in this picture. Who would of thought Santa saved the best for last.
