Craft Beer Cellar 2014 Advent Beer Day 1

Today was the first day of this year's beer Advent box from Craft Beer Cellar. Last year was really wonderful, but I had trouble with a beer every night. I've got a plan to deal with that this year: more on that later.

The first beer this year was last year's number 17, Sierra Nevada Celebration. It is an excellent start with a flavor that feels like Christmas. First I noticed a long-lasting, creamy head that left Guinness-like lacing with each sip. The flavor doesn't come across as sweet to me, but the best way I can describe it is like a red bell pepper followed by caramel and bitterness on the back of my tongue.
