christmas ales
Whats your thoughts on commercial christmas/holiday beers?

I like some. I think they are a good thing especially to change it up from what you normally buy.

Southern Tier released 2XMAS ale this year and it's pretty damn good, but Great Lakes Christmas Ale is still my favorite.

Almost every year my favorite is Anchor Christmas Ale.

I haven't really found many/any that I like...most seem to be overwhelmingly spiced for my taste

I agree, it is very good. The body of a barleywine without over-heaviness; the freshness of an IPA without over-bitterness. And, none of the funky flavors (pumpkin, allspice, etc.) that befoul most seasonals.
