Silver City Brewery Old Scrooge Christmas Ale

What the brewers say

“Intriguing notes of apple, cherry, and apricot abound.”

What our panel thought

“Strong malt-forward caramel aroma, with a solid Juicy Fruit–like ester. Light cinnamon comes through as it warms. Caramel and biscuit flavors with hints of balancing bitterness and baking spice. Finish is quite sweet; excellent subtle spices and complexity.”

What our editors thought

“Soft citrus hops and dark-berry and cranberry notes on the nose, punchy and pungent. The sip brings soft but strong bitterness, with a leathery twang, that builds as it lingers.”
