Anchor Christmas Ale
Anchor brewing releases a new Christmas Ale every year and this year is no different.
The 2009 Christmas "Our Special Ale" is exceptionally creamy compared to previous vintages and exhibits slightly oak-ey vanilla heft.
Its mouthfeel resembles more a cream soda than wassail normally found in winter time. I haven't decided exactly whether or not I like this beer. I must imbibe several more six packs before deciding. What I've loved about previous vintages of this ale is the presence of spicy blackberry/currant flavors mixed with spruce.
I need to test this more- if you see it yourself don't be afraid to try it and share your experience.
