Beer 74/365 – Moylan’s White Christmas Spiced Winter Lager

Style: Herbed / Spiced Beer

Purchased at: Brought back by my buddy Kevin from Denver

What makes this beer different: Was changing my opinion back and forth with every sip

Will I be drinking this again: Probably not

Grade: B

1/21/2010: A few months back I had Kevin, my 9 foot tall ginger friend from Colorado pick me up a bunch of random beer to bring back to the Burgh with him. I told him to grab me any kind of Moylan’s he could get since we cant get it here. Unfortunately this isn’t one of the better bottles he brought me back, and I hate his face for it. But did bring me back a lot of keepers like Abyss, Oak Aged Yeti, Russian River Consecration, Alaskan Smoked Porter etc.

Anyways this beer smelled a little spicy, but the smell wasn’t overpowering. The first taste was almost metallic, and not very good. Although the more I drank it, the more some of the flavors came out. A good bit of coriander flavor, toasted malt, and some peppery taste in the background. The alcohol wasn’t hidden very well especially considering it was only 6%. Mouthfeel was pretty average. Can’t quite put my finger on why I didn’t love this beer, but something just seemed off to me. Probably will not go out of my way to be drinking this one again.
