    Deep amber and filled with warm spices in the nose. The first sip is full of cinnamon, clove, ginger, and is delightfully warm. There’s even a late sweetness. Graham cracker flavors make an appearance, too. If you like spicy winter warmers, this is for you. I’ve even seen it served with a ring of cinnamon on the glass, just like salt with a margarita. The great debate here in Ohio is Great Lakes Christmas Ale or Thirsty Dog 12 Days of Christmas. I don’t really want to decide. Both are outstanding and make anyone look forward to Christmas. You can’t go wrong with either.
