12 Beers of Christmas, Number 11

Bells Christmas Ale

 Scotch Ale

5.5 % ABV
Amber in color, very drinkable for a scotch ale, subdued flavors with a hint of toffee and slight citrus aroma
Paired with marinated grilled chicken, asparagus spears & grilled steak fries with Sriracha BB-Q sauce
Bells brewery has some fantastic beers, their Ambers, Stouts, and Porters are by in large some of my favorite and most frequently purchased beers so their Christmas Ale was an obvious choice for me.
That being said, I wasn’t exactly sure what to expect from the brewery that makes “Two Hearted Ale” which has incredible flavor and aroma, so I was surprised by just how drinkable and mellow their Christmas Ale is.
Great option if you want to drink several to toast the holidays.
