11 Beers to Christmas

I think this is the first beer I've had from RJ Rockers in South Carolina and wow, what a beer.  It's a spice laden pale ale.  In fact, it has so much spice, I think the hops are totally lost.  In the nose, I can pull out out cinnamon, nutmeg & clove and then, on the first taste, there they are again, the trifecta of holiday spices.  The finish tends to turn almost tart, which finally exists with a hint of pepper on my lips.

11 Beers to Christmas

First Snow clocks in at 6% ABV, and goes down like 3.2%.  I could definitely drink another, but truthfully, I think it's a kind of low contender in the world of holiday beers.  Then again, if I was opting for a really long session of spicy beers, this would completely fit the bill.
