Samuel Adams Old Fezziwig Ale

samuel_adams_old_fezziwig_ale

Old Fezziwig Ale is exactly what I think of when I think of a holiday beer.   It’s malty and spicy, with caramel and chocolate notes accentuated by cinnamon, ginger, and orange peel.   It’s not overly sweet though, and in fact it leans overall definitively towards the bitter side.  This is an excellent beer to relax with late on Christmas Eve, and one of my favorites from Samuel Adams.

I give it a 4.3 out of 5.
