Christmas Beers Countdown – 4

Goose Island Christmas AleGoose Island Christmas Ale

It’s a pleasant surprise to find this Goose Island Christmas Ale is so easy drinking after yesterday’s overwhelmingly sweet, syrupy Delirium Christmas beer.

Goose Island Christmas AleIt’s a 6.2% American Brown Ale that tastes predominantly of toffee malts, with a creamy consistency and overall quite a mellow flavour, the hints of orange and cinnamon I think coming from the hops rather than any added spices.

I like this beer and it went too quickly. In that sense too it is a Christmas Beer.
