Decided to take a crack at a Holiday/Christmas Ale this year. Next year I am going to use local raw honey and candied ginger. I thought that the cinnamon could be bumped up just a tad as it wasn't as prominent as I had hoped for. Perhaps breaking the cinnamon sticks in half would have helped. I was happy with the hop selection as it gave the beer a hint of citrus that went well with the spice.
