Great Holiday Brew
This was the 1st Brew I've done after a few years away from the hobby and what a success! I served it to our holiday guests and even the "highbrow" wine drinkers liked it! They all said they were excited to try my next beer.
I will definitely do it again next year!

Going to need a second batch!
Brewed this in early October to make sure it was ready for Christmas. Cracked one open second week of November because I couldn't wait for Christmas. Man it was good. Just a hint of spice that reminds you of the holidays! Taste like the house smells when grandmas baking. Not too heavy though, so a second pint, (or third) isn't out of the question.. I think if have time for another batch before Christmas...

a new tradition
This beer has turned into a tradition for me. I usually bake some of my special chocolate chip oatmeal cookies and this beer goes very well with them. My family loves this beer so it is so nice that I can make something to celebrate with. I think that this is year 4 brewing this beer and still love it.

Fantastic kit
I brewed this for my family's annual christmas eve party and it was even a bigger hit than I had thought. I wasn't paying attention during the party but when I went to pour a glass a couple days later... the keg was pretty much kicked. I don't think we've ever gone through a keg that fast with all the other drink options we usually have. People REALLY liked this one.

It's well balanced and most importantly has just the perfect amount of spice. Doesn't taste like you are eating an ornament like some Christmas beers do.

Will definitely be doing this beer again next year.

Better than commercial Christmas brews.
Probably my best homebrew to date. Not usually a fan of Christmas beers but this one is excellent. Well balanced and not "over the top" with the spices. I may have to make two batches next year due to the demand from friends and family.

Great holiday ale
This was my first beer that I utilized a full boil. Great blend of ingredients- smelled incredible during brew. OG was spot on, fermentation started like clockwork 6 hrs later using Safale-5. I left in fermenter for 3 weeks, then bottled. As is often case, last bottle was only about 2/3 full- so threw it in fridge, just to see what would taste like. Even without carbination, this beer rivals many of the Christmas ales out there. Drank entire thing. After 1 week in bottle, tried another one- even better. Looking forward to sharing with family this Christmas

I will definitely buy this again, it was a hit with the holidays and I enjoyed it along side all of my friends and family. One of the best parts of the Holidays.

Very good
I have to qualify this review by stating up front that I didn't use the spices. It was on sale big price cut after the holidays and I just wanted a good ale extract kit for less money. This was my second stab at homebrewing. Flavor did not disappoint. Relatives gave it big thumbs up.
