Samuel Adams Old Fezziwig Ale
Here's another beer supposedly designed for the winter holidays--Samuel Adams Old Fezziwig Ale. I guess it got its name from a famous Dickens story, A Christmas Carol, which don't be shocked takes place at Christmas time and winter time. It is officially winter as of earlier this week, but here in Miami it was 80 degrees today. Anyway, I know what a cold day is like as I grew up in Central PA and went to school in upstate NY and lived in the NYC suburbs for another 8 years. But this beer could be fine any time of the year, IF you like it. It is spicy; yes, you can actually taste a bunch of spices. If you like cinnamon or ginger in your beer, great. Otherwise pick another beer and enjoy those spices like most people--in your apple pie. Not a favorite of mine, but also not bad.
