Beer and Cheer: Big Shot Seasonal Ale

This beer was a welcome change of pace from a multitude of sweet, dark, heavy beers. But it wasn't exactly light - more like a brown than an English strong ale, with thick head and a lighter, red hue. The nutty, roasted flavor reminded me of a holiday-season toffee -- with a touch of hops. Still, the sweetness wasn't overpowering, and it had a nice drying effect. - Jonathan Shikes

Craft breweries in Colorado and across the country make seasonal beers all year round, but the best of the best come out in the final three months. To see reviews of my other favorites, check out our Booze News blog archive.
