The Brewski Review: This appears to have a Christmas / Seasonal flavor to it so I pulled it out of the fridge and poured a glass. I would have to say it was very buttery tasting. It was rather mild and not very bitter. Not much of an aftertaste. It was a decent beverage. I would have to say I guess I’m beginning to be a lightweight in my older age. This beer about put me to sleep. I was doing some work around the house when I drank this and after finishing, I was all but useless. I layed on the family room floor and wanted to sleep but my kids made sure that wasn’t going to happen.
