Saint Arnold Sailing Santa ....

Today's beer is a 2012 Sailing Santa from Saint Arnold Brewing Company.  It is a blend of their Christmas Ale and Elissa IPA.  1 pint, 6 ounce bottle.  Searching on the Internet shows 7% ABV.

This beer poured with a small, beige head.  Beer color is a bright copper.  The aroma has some fruit, sweetness, and spice.  There is also a vegetal quality.  The taste is more malt and spice, then you get some hops and bitterness from the IPA side of things.  Maybe a little bite from the alcohol.  The aftertaste leaves you with some bitterness and spice.  This blend works for me - I think I prefer it over either of the individual beers that go into it.
