Our family has a tradition of creating Advent boxes. An advent box has 24 little presents to open in the days leading up to Christmas. When I saw that Craft Beer Cellar had an advent box of beer, I couldn't pass it up.
The first beer was Breckenridge Brewery's Christmas Ale. It was a really nice introduction to the box. It had a good head and color, with a low-hopped malt flavor that went well with the spice notes. The spices were notably different from the pie spices found in pumpkin spice beers. I'm guessing it is a combination of clove, and allspice, without cinnamon. I'm enjoying the last few creamy sips right now.
