Holiday Ale
I’ve never made anything like this before. It’s quite tasty and fun to share this Holiday season. I’ve bottled in green bottles with yellow caps and used as gifts, all well received.

Great holiday brew
Fantastic brew! I’ve avoided holiday ales in the past because they end up being a disaster of pungent flavors. They seem to be a beer that ends up hanging around too long after the holidays, but I caught this one on sale as an all grain and decided to give it a go. Just a subtle flavor of spices to let you know what it is with a rich backbone and exceptional finish on the palate. My favorite beer on my four taps right now. I also dropped out of all grain for a while but this beer came out so good I’m giving it another go around. Highly recommend giving this one a try!

Not that great
Wasn’t a big fan of this one. Maybe I just messed it up. Tasted like soap at the finish. Wasn’t that spiced either.

Not TOO spicy
I really dislike spiced beers of any style and was hesitant to try this one but I will say that the spices are not overwhelming as most commercial seasonal beers usually are. It's very much like a good brown ale with the spices added. I think the amount included in the kit was just right (for me). It might even be good without the spices!

A good beer for Christmas!
I made this for my Christmas party and it was a hit! The only thing I had to do was up the spices.

Real Easy Drinker
I know a lot of commercial holiday ales go over the top on spices, but this is a really nice mellow spice flavor. I like everything about this beer and it's restored my faith in spiced beers. For reference I went with Wyeast (British II) - 1335

Good on its own, but could use more spice
Fermented with WLP004 (Irish Ale) yeast then kegged. Turned out nice. Dark red hovering into brown territory. The spice that comes with the kit are very subtle.

I would certainly brew this again, but at least double the amount of ginger & all spice. Maybe add 50% cinnamon. I'm not the type of brewer that needs to make "in your face" beers, but adding more spice I think will bring out more of a holiday feel.

Everything else is right on the money.

a good holiday beer!
i was suspicious of all the holiday spices used in the brewing, but was pleasantly surprised by the results. The spices were not overpowering, and were well balanced by the malt and hops. It was well received by my family and friends. A nice way to mix it up with the stouts and porters around the holidays (and it beats doing a pumpkin beer :)

Thanks to the More Beer elves that put this kit together.
Merry Christmas to me! This beer had a nice medium body and balanced malt character. Color was a dark copper-red. The nutmeg and Christmas spices were nice and subtle. The spices did not over power the beer. This beer was gone by New Years Day in my house. Great Holiday beer!
