This recipe makes a golden, rather than dark, Christmas beer. With the proportions of hops and spices used, you get a complex mix of aromas, with none of them being too dominant. Other than being a lager and using various temperatures, this is a very easy brew to make. If anyone else tries it out, I'd be curious to hear the results.
