Santa's Private Reserve Ale
Type: American Amber
In Denmark the Christmas celebration takes place on the 24th of December. Therefore my Christmas beer calendar technically ended yesterday...but, in the US most people celebrate on the 25th! So here is a bonus American Christmas beer. Extra bonus I decided to do a google hangout with my brother in the US as he had a bottle of the same beer. So enjoy my first video review of Rogue's Santa's Private Reserve. (I apologize for all the ummms and ahhhs. My public speaking professor from college would throw a fit)
Pours a nice opaque amber color with an almost two finger head. The smell is a nice piney hops smell. The taste follows with a big bitter hops taste and an undercurrent of nice caramel sweetness from the malt. The hops really shine here though. I would call this more an amber IPA, way hoppier then I thought. But a pleasant surprise. Hope you enjoyed the review.
