Default Christmas ale

Hey everyone. I'm new to the forum and just finished my first batch recently - an IPA that turned out prretty decent. I'm a long time "beer snob" and waited too long to start home brewing. Anyway, I'm a huge fan of Great Lakes Christmas Ale and was wondering if anyone had a good clone? Thanks

I can't help you with the clone but welcome to the forum and congratulations on becoming a homebrewer.

Cheers
