Bottle that dad picked up from Congleton brewpub (cheers dad), consumed Dinmore, Herefordshire 27-12-09 Pours reddy brown in fact on second glance maybe its a little darker than that actually. Taste is fruity and tangy with a little Christmas spice its not bad but I’m getting a bit tired of these bottles of run of the mill stuff and need something with a bit more oomphh.

Hand pulled at the Wellington, Birmingham. Ho ho ho, another Xmas beer! This time, a nice one, with a good balance of gentle spice and hops, with a flavour that I’m glad holds through to the finish. Nice stuff.
