    This is my personal favorite holiday offering; I make sure that I get at least one 6-pack every Christmas. Also, since I live in the city, I make it a point to go to the brewpub and get one on tap each year, also.

    This year, however, it doesn’t seem to be as good as in years past — it tastes to me like it was pulled out of secondary fermentation a few days too early: it doesn’t have its usual hoppy, zesty finish, which probably is what gave you the impression that it’s thin in the mouthfeel department; it’s normally a robust, full-bodied brew.

    Don’t get me wrong — it’s still excellent; I just don’t feel it’s as good this year as in prior years.

    They doubled the amount brewed this year (it’s hard to find in Cleveland in mid-December!), so any lack in the beer can be chucked up to growing pains for GLBC. Certainly nothing else over there has changed — which is a Good Thing.
