Black Raven Brewing // Festivus Holiday Pale Ale // Redmond, WA // 7% ABV 48 IBU
Color: Amber and caramel
Smell: Cloves affixed on the outside of an orange, roasted malt.
Taste: Aromatic orange and holiday spices are in the beginning of the profile, ending with a crisp, hoppy spark. Bitter cranberries, the warmth of root spices, and maple sweetness come together for all the winter goodness without the weight of a heavier ale.
Overall: Festivus is all about the celebration of the Earth, from the winter fruits, to root spices, and the Christmas tree hops. Let the holidays begin!
