Obviously this is a seasonal offering and is tailored towards dark evenings by a warm snug fire.

They say:

‘A Dark Rich Malty Christmas Ale. Made using a combination of five malts and a blend of traditional and spicy hops’ – A Dark Rich Christmas Ale ABV6%

“Drink Britain Website”:http://www.drinkbritain.com/drinks/11/keswick-thirst-noel says:

‘Fantastically aromatic, with violets, cloves, cinnamon, vanilla, it’s incredible to think that this all comes from the blend of hops. The palate sports a complex mix of dark roasted malts, with vanilla coffee flavours, spicy fruitcake, and bitter coffee on the finish.

We’re in casserole country here. Or rich tangy cheeses. Or a log fire. Or a cold night…’

It might be a bit too sweet for some, but then this is a beer for Christmas. Very easy drinking with a gentle kick. We’ll try and get some additional customer feedback. Then I’m off to try another new beer. It’s a tough job and someone’s got to do it.
