Received as a gift from Sheri and Mike. Thank you!
Day 6 of 24 beers of Christmas 2021.
Pours clear but the width of the glass makes it opaque at the thickness. Beautiful, lightly frothy foam covers the beer. Great retention with sheeting lacing.
Aroma of ginger and cinnamon with each waft alternating between the two. Cinnamon eventually takes the lead. Some sweetness.
Taste is well balanced up front before the finish into the end that leads it astray. The cinnamon builds, overpowers, and fails the beer. Some ginger but neaty beaten back by the brute cinnamon.
Medium body with light carbonation that only builds on the tip of the tongue.
We all have our kryptonite of beers. Anything with spice in it falls into that category for me, some are worse than others. Juleøl comes closer to balance than some beers this time of year. Still, I wouldn't have it again. Enjoy!
