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). Also, sorry for the system downtime… something’s rotten at the webhost.
