Beer Type: Spiced Scottish Ale
Location: The 513, The Nati, The Real Queen City, Cincinnati!
I am rating this beer a 4.25. MadTree got this one right this is definitely a perfect winter beer. This is also a beer you really want to enjoy so take your time drinking this and savor the flavors. This is a very smooth beer for having a higher ABV (Alcohol by Volume), I could definitely enjoy a sixer of this on a cold winter night. If you have tried this seasonal beer from MadTree Brewery please let me know what you think. Debating on beer is always fun to do since we all have different opinions on taste.

Welcome to the seventeenth day of Jefe’s 25 Beers ’til Christmas. Christmas is next week which means, we are in the final stretch of my holiday beer review. When I glanced at my list of beers I noticed I still needed four more holiday beer types, so I ventured out to Party Source in Newport Kentucky. (Highly Recommended) While I was there I noticed they have a Braxton Brewery Taproom located in the back of the store, where you can try various brews from the Kentucky based brewery. I really enjoy the beers that I have tried from this local tristate brewery, so I tried their holiday beer and will rate it on a 1 to 5 scale.
