Frosted Frog Christmas Ale

  • SRM Color : 20
  • Brewer: Hoppin' Frog Brewery
  • Brewer's Description:   The essence of Christmas is captured in this very bottle you are holding. Perfectly blended spices compliment Frosted Frog’s rich malt flavors, creating the ultimate Christmas experience. Celebrate the holidays as you savor this very special seasonal offering.
  • Recommended Glassware: A Conic 
  • Russ' rating: 8.5 / 10
  • With the brew: Merry Christmas Baby - Etta James
  • Comments: Pouring with little or no head, what bubbles were visible were of slightly larger than average size ( > 0.7mm ). The nose is sweet and malty with a spice hint. The body of the beer is a hazy gingerbread color and has a slightly viscous mouthfeel. The flavor is quite simply enormous. There is a spicy front end with a slight peppery hind but a fantastic gingerbread flavor that combines the yeast and malt perfectly. It is instantly warming and easy to get carried away with.
