Merry Christmas, fellow drinkhackers. In the spirit — nay, the flavor — of the season here’s a short beer review.
Saint Arnold heralds itself as Texas’ oldest craft brewery, and they put out about a dozen types of beer. Their Christmas Ale has been in production since 1995, and it’s apparently quite popular at holiday time. It’s easy to see why: This light amber has a surprising sweetness atop its light hoppiness. Nothing complex here, but at 7% alcohol by volume, you likely won’t care for long.
P.S. Sorry for the cameraphone pic (courtesy of beer purchaser Josh Pipes).
