Thanks ever so much to my friends at Great Lakes. Well, I don’t actually know them, but I’m sure we’d be friends if we ever met. I’ve liked all their beers so far, and as I try to drink a different beer every day, they just keep kicking out limited edition special brews. More good news…this one has 100 ml more than the last one. Here we have a strong ale with (as advertised) you can taste honey, cinnamon, ginger, and orange peel. The dominant flavour is raw cinnamon, think cinnamon sticks. It’s a great choice for a winter beer. It makes me want to sit in front of a roaring fire in a smoking jacket. Do they still make those? Besides a fashion match or an activity match, there’s surely a good food match in some sort of dessert, like pecan pie or carrot cake. I have yet to go wrong with anything from Great Lakes, regardless of the season of their seasonal beer.
