This Christmas ale from Anchor Brewing is technically called "Our Special Ale"  is vintage dated and brewed to a different recipe each year. It has been brewed in extremely limited quantities since 1975. It is released after Thanksgiving and is eagerly anticipated by beer lovers everywhere. Our Special Ale is usually brewed to brown ale specifications and has been spiced with everything from ginger to juniper. Each year s label has a different tree depicted as a symbol of rebirth of life after the new year when spring is just around the corner. The 1995 version arrives with a reddish tan whipped cream head that poses on an attractive dark mahogany brown beer. The aroma takes you back to Grandma s kitchen when she was baking spice cake, vanilla, anise and sweet malt. Sweet spices coat the tongue along with a malty palate. The finish is malty and redolent of vanilla. 1995 Special Ale is a smooth, well-crafted spice beer, not overpowering and the spices compliment each other.



This clone recipe was created in 2000.
