Samuel Adams: Merry Maker
Wow! What a difference from last years recipe! I believe this was first available last year as a special seasonal. I was disappointed to find it way too sweet and not enough gingerbread taste. I decided to give it another shot this year and found that they have tweaked the recipe to perfection!
Merry Maker smells and tastes like gingerbread and molasses, it's sweet but well balanced with some clove and cinnamon. I was absolutely satisfied and this beer lives up to it's name. Delicious!
The bottle was $6.99 and 9%. I hope they don't tweak anything for next year, I think this is a keeper.
