Beer: Christmas Ale
Brewery: Abita Brewing Company
Style: Brown Ale
Serving Style: Draft
Drinking Establishment: Spuyten Duyvil
Primary Consumer: Kerensa
Sight: Clear deep garnet body with a dense white head.
Smell: It has an extreme Christmasy spruce scent–and not in that artificial car air freshener way. It smells like walking through a Christmas tree lot.
Flavor: While there is a slight trace of pine, there’s little else in here that screams HOLIDAY CELEBRATION IN MY BEER. It kind of just tastes like a poorly executed IPA.
Feel: Thin body with high carbonation.
Concluding Remark: All I’m going to say about this is that I did not feel festive after drinking Abita’s Christmas Ale. False advertising. Next.
