Ho Ho Ho?
I’m afraid that this is more No! No! No!
A light straw Pale Ale with so little of anything that you might wonder what you’re drinking.
The smell is a weak washing up liquid lemon, the malts are almost non existent, and the hops are lightly bitter but pretty much apologise to you for any inconvenience caused.
This is not a “Hoppy Christmas Bitter,” just an uninspiring brew.
Oh, and by the way, If I was a more cynical man I’d take a guess that this is simply one of Blakemere’s everyday beers wrapped up in a Santa hat for December.
