Brewery: Sierra Nevada Brewing Co.
Review: This seasonal beer from Sierra Nevada truly lives up to its celebratory name. When poured, the ale has an appealing head and rich amber tones – perfectly designed for the cold winter drinking period. It’s a wonderful, medium bodied beer, with an initial malty taste followed by a delicious, pronounced hoppy flavor that stands up well throughout the tasting. As befitting a seasonal ale, this special brew has an intense flavor that makes this a true pleasure to drink. If you haven’t yet sampled this fine ale during the festive period, it would make an excellent choice for ringing in the New Year.
Food pairing: There really is no need to pair this fine drink with food. However, it would make an excellent companion to the usual holiday party snacks, or indeed, a turkey sandwich.
