In this winter beer blog, we are going to sample the new brew, which is Christmas Town Ale, from Frankenmuth Brewery. If you have read my earlier beer blog posts, you know the history of the oldest brewery in State of Michigan. If you have not, please, read those beer blog posts to get to know this great Michigan craft brewery. Let us get into the beer.
It has a cloudy amber to a reddish color with a tan color head on this winter seasonal. The smell is a sweet malty notes. The taste is a slight carbonated sweet malty notes with a sweet malty aftertaste. It is a warm drinkable beer for the winter season.
Here is a description from the beer bottle:
Toasted sweet dark malts and American hops perfectly combine with holiday flavors to create a taste and aroma that is unmistakably Christmas in every sip.

Closing, there is nothing more to say about this brewery. Frankenmuth Brewery makes some great beers and they did not disappoint any craft beer drinkers in Michigan and around the country with this brew. Christmas Town Ale is new to the market and it is pretty good for the holiday. They put some thought behind this beer. I mean you can drink it with any kind of dish and that is including dessert. I enjoyed the sweet malty taste and this beer is at the top of my winter seasonals. This brew gives l hope to all winter seasonals. I highly recommend this brew. Go get some! Drink it! Enjoy it! Metal it! \m/
