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.
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.
