Here we have Anchor Steam’s 2013 Christmas Ale! This is something I look forward to all year. The recipe changes year to year so it’s always a surprise what they’re coming out with.
Winter Warmer Ale, 5.5% ABV. Dark black coca cola color, minimal head with moderate lacing. Pine, nutmeg, clove on the nose, nice nutty, roast-y taste with subtle sweet hop finish. Well done Anchor! I like it more than the 2012. But not as much as the 2011.
