Yeah yeah, I know. Another Christmas ale review. Despite it being half way through November, how could I possibly resist the urge to have Christmas early?
Brewery: Hoppin' Frog
Beer: Frosted Frog Christmas Ale
Style: Spice/Herb/Vegetable Beer
Price: $7.99 / 22oz bottle
This beer pours a dark amber with a quickly disappearing white head. The aroma really hits you hard. Ginger, vanilla, cinnamon, all of which are perfectly presented. Mouthfeel is heavy, with a slight syrupy texture, very little carbonation. Flavor is huge on ginger, cinnamon, and malt. As this beer warms the alcohol becomes more pronounced. If you can imagine the scent if you were inside a gingerbread house, this beer could be it. Absolutely delightful!
Final Score: 43/50
