It is getting to be the time of year when the seasons are changing (at least for those of you not in Las Vegas where it is 95° F here today). That means it is time to think of brewing your Christmas beer. You can call it holiday beer if you like. I am using the traditional English name since people recognize that.
I have brewed many a Christmas style beer and some have been unbeleiveable and others not quite so stellar. When I owned my homebrew store, I also tasted many beers and most had the same issues.
