Here’s how I’d rate the various Christmas/Winter beers I tried over the holidays this year:
This isn’t to say that the Abita was bad, they were all good beers but somebody had to come in fourth. In fact it was probably a very well-made beer, but it was not really to my taste. I’m a malt guy rather than a hops guy so the more hops a beer has the lower down on the rankings it will land.
So since I’m a malt fan I’m looking forward to the starkbierfest and the start of Bock/Doppelbock season.
