Merry Christmas! What better treat on Christmas Day than Bell’s Brewery’s Christmas Ale? Bell’s Christmas Ale is a winter seasonal that is unusual for a holiday beer in that there are no spices at all. It’s strictly a barley and hops beer, that’s very well balanced with a hit of sweet malt in the middle and bitter hops on the finish. It’s fruity, with orange in the nose, and both orange and cherries in the middle that remind me of a Belgian. A really outstanding Christmas treat.
I give it a 4.6 out of 5.
