Drink of the Week: 2013 Anchor Christmas Ale

Holiday beers always make us happy to welcome winter’s chill, especially today’s Drink of the Week—the 2013 Anchor Christmas Ale. The 39th release of the special holiday brew, each year’s recipe is different from the last, and while the brewery keeps mum about the different formulas, this year’s bottle is approachable and easy-drinking, with fresh fruit flavors of apples and plums followed by subtle caramel malts and a wave of hop zinginess on the finish. A cheery welcome to the holiday season, indeed. anchorbrewing.com for distribution info
