The Twelve Beers if Christmas – 7 – Vancouver Island Brewery Dough Head Gingerbread Ale

(From Vancouver Island Brewery out of Victoria, Added by Mike)

My seventh beer of Christmas is Vancouver Island Brewery’s Dough Head Gingerbread Ale.

This is a great looking beer, very reminiscent of gingerbread. The brown body has small orange highlight with a white head.

On the nose this is very gingery with a quick follow up of nutmeg and cinnamon. Rather than gingerbread this is more like a deconstruction of gingerbread, each flavour presenting itself after another. It is actually a fun way of tasting a beer, waiting for each flavour to surface. There isn’t much actual beer flavour except a slight hint of hop just at the end.
