This weeks Six Pack of the Week is one of the top rated Christmas Ales, scoring an 88/100 on Beer Advocate. Hailing from the home of the Cleveland Cavaliers and the not quite World Series Champions, Great Lakes Brewing Company's seasonal release Christmas Ale is a Winter Warmer coming it at 7.5% ABV. This six pack was purchased from our exclusive sponsor 9 & Hilton Market and is just what the doctored ordered in terms of post Thanksgiving beverage. The Christmas Ale opens up with a beautiful cinnamon aroma with hints of honey and ginger. The flavor profile is mostly cinnamon but there are slight hints of honey, the 7.5% ABV is well hidden.
