Samuel Adams White Christmas ....

Today's beer is a Samuel Adams White Christmas (Ale Brewed With Spices) from The Boston Beer Company.  It is a limited release, available November and December.  5.8% ABV is listed on the twelve ounce bottle.  Their web site shows 8 IBUs.

White Christmas poured with a medium, off white head.  Beer color is a cloudy straw, with just a touch of darker golden yellow.  The aroma is wheat and citrus, with some mild spices.  The spices are more predominant in the taste - seems to be some cinnamon and nutmeg.  Malty, bready with a little yeast bite.  Fairly effervescent.  Leaves the mouth slightly dry with a little cinnamon aftertaste.  A beer with some nice holiday flavors.
