Cask: Seasonal - Winter. Also available bottled.

December brings the last of our seasonal beers - biscuity and bitter with a long finish.
A colour of dark copper leads to a nose that is hoppy and spicy, a balanced palate and a long, hoppy finish.
There are both crystal and chocolate malts in this tawny beer - it’s full bodied with a delighful hop character from Challenger and Styrian Goldings.

Cunningham (4426) - Halden, NORWAY - FEB 1, 2014
På flaske fra systembolaget. Fyldig litt bernstenfarget farge med ett fint skum. Søtlig aroma med ett ganske fruktig innslag. Heldigvis ikke så søt som antatt. Frisk ale med litt citrus innslag. Det som ble litt "feil" er at jeg antok at det var en juleøl, altså mørk kraftig øl. Det var det defintivt ikke. Skal heretter bare kose meg med den som en god frisk ale i vintermørket :-)
