Down to the last couple of these now, so it's a good time to look back at the brew.
The flavor is very good, though perhaps not as "holiday-ish" as some people would want. I could probably up the spice a little bit and still have it be fairly subtle.
This beer also suffers from what seems to be my chronic problem with head retention in beers I brew. While it's better than some of my beers, it still doesn't have that lacy, fluffy type of head that would look best on a holiday beer like this. I'll have to come up with some way to improve head retention next time.
Other than that, it turned out great I think. I could probably have used slightly less priming sugar, but it was only barely over-carbonated.
