Title: Anchor's 2010 Christmas beer
Post by: kgs on November 04, 2010, 10:46:46 pm
bought my first bottle tonight... was so looking forward to it. It's so heavy with clove flavor I can't finish it. *sad*

Sounds like a keeper then . . . I usually get 6, drink one, and age the rest.  I had a 2009 one earlier this week.

I'll take your advice and buy a couple to tuck in the back of the beer closet.

I was a big fan of the Anchor's Xmas ales until they started adding spices to it.  It's still a well made beer (as are all of the Anchor products), but I guess I'm just in that minority that just doesn't particularly like spices in my beer.
