Dan opens Nice & Naughty, a Christmas Ale from Naked Dove Brewing Company, as his tenth beer from the NYS Craft Beer Box.
STYLE: Christmas Ale
AVAILABILITY: 12-Ounce cans, Draft (Seasonal)
Stats above taken from the brewery’s can and Untappd.
Ruby-esque and amber in hue with an off-white, fluffy head.
Allspice hits your nose first, with a host of other holiday spices and malt sweetness.
Winter warmer in flavor profile for sure. The spice continues with a nice malty back coming through.
Mouthfeel is fairly full and provides a warming feeling without expressing alcohol.
One could definitely put a few of these away to stay warm during the holidays. Try it with your Christmas goose or maybe some carrot cake for a bit of fun.
Cheers and remember:
Life’s a tap…drink up ’til it’s dry.
