[Cask at the Three Guineas, Reading] Gold, slight loose white head, light fizz. Fruity aroma, lots of hops in the mouth and a lasting bitterness with some lemon coming through in the finish. A great summer refresher, full of flavour for the low ABV. However, can’t see why such a beer is being marketed as a Christmas beer. In fact, I’m struggling this year to find any "proper" old fashioned dark, strong rich Christmas beers - where have they all gone?
