Beer Tasting: General Lafayette Holiday Cheer

This beer was enjoyed from the tap at the pub. Chris, Russ, and the crew at the General continue to impress with their takes on standard and not-so-standard brews. Can't wait for their festival in February. Bryan's Notes:
  • Made from the second runnings of the 275th Anniversary Ale (due out 9/07); which sounds like it should be a WOW beer, can't wait
  • Thin, creamy head
  • A cloudy, orangish-brown color
  • Medium-body and carbonated just enough to make it dance
  • Cinnamon and cloves dominate, along with some moderate hints of alcohol
  • At 8% ABV, certainly not a session beer, but definitely a joy for a "short session"!
