A good beer for Christmas!
I made this for my Christmas party and it was a hit! The only thing I had to do was up the spices.

I know a lot of commercial holiday ales go over the top on spices, but this is a really nice mellow spice flavor. I like everything about this beer and it's restored my faith in spiced beers. For reference I went with Wyeast (British II) - 1335

Good on its own, but could use more spice
Fermented with WLP004 (Irish Ale) yeast then kegged. Turned out nice. Dark red hovering into brown territory. The spice that comes with the kit are very subtle.

I would certainly brew this again, but at least double the amount of ginger & all spice. Maybe add 50% cinnamon. I'm not the type of brewer that needs to make "in your face" beers, but adding more spice I think will bring out more of a holiday feel.

Everything else is right on the money.

a good holiday beer!
i was suspicious of all the holiday spices used in the brewing, but was pleasantly surprised by the results. The spices were not overpowering, and were well balanced by the malt and hops. It was well received by my family and friends. A nice way to mix it up with the stouts and porters around the holidays (and it beats doing a pumpkin beer :)

Thanks to the More Beer elves that put this kit together.
Merry Christmas to me! This beer had a nice medium body and balanced malt character. Color was a dark copper-red. The nutmeg and Christmas spices were nice and subtle. The spices did not over power the beer. This beer was gone by New Years Day in my house. Great Holiday beer!
