Christmas is here, so let's cheers with some beer – specifically, YuleSmith Winter Holiday Red Ale. This one's not for the ladies. (But I can provide an excellent recommendation for you – Sam Adams Cranberry Lambic – it's like the Cosmo of Beers.)
- super frothy head like root beer, creamy, nutty brown YuleSmith Winter Holiday Ale (Alesmith Brewing Company in San Diego, CA) 9.5% ABV
On the way to the 'rents house for Xmas, the hand model and I made a stop at one of my favorite liquor stores ever, Hi Time Wine Cellars in Costa Mesa. They've got a whole separate section dedicated to beers, including a Beer "locker" that's 4 aisles wide to keep their specialty beers, like YulseSmith, cold.
The nose is hoppy 'n malty. The tongue is brown bready 'n creamy, and the finish is peppy. It seriously has one of the frothiest heads I've ever seen. I was tempted to plop a scoop of vanilla in it.
This one will go great with some Apple Cheddar Pie.
