An antidote to Christmas. No strange spices, just a really good stronger beer with a crisp fruity hop flavour and plenty of malt. A refreshing beer to clear the palate.

Darker than most Fyne brews but brown or not this is typically well Fyne made and possesses good tight structure. Aromas show a degree of complexity with a few whiffs of Christmas spice. Interesting
