Description:  "This is our winter seasonal beer which arrives early fall and stays around till after the holidays.  Crystal malt and Cascade hops produce a well balanced strong ale that is perfect for nights around fireplace with friends and family."  — Cascade Lakes Brewing Co.

Random thoughts:   This is the fifth of my winter seasonal reviews

The tasting:  Poured a hazy dark amber with a white head that dissipated fairly quickly.  Aroma is roasted malts with a bit of piney hops.  Flavor includes some caramel, brown sugar, and hints of spice (that I can't identify) followed by pine and citrus hops. Light to medium bodied and with a crisp finish.
Rating:  4 star.  Really Good.  I want this again!  Santa's Little Helper is a well balanced beer, with a nice mix of malts and hops.  Consider this one for your holiday gatherings.
