COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottle: Unfiltered
Falling from the sky like little bombs of flavour come the Reindeer Droppings! Each one is sweet like California raisins, but bitter and pungent like a freshly peeled grapefruit, lip-smackingly tasty...then ’pow!’ it’s gone.

BlackHaddock (3598) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - MAY 4, 2014
500ml Bottle: BBD 1st July 14, poured into an ’Old Speckled Hen’ badged vase shaped pint glass at home on 5th May 14. Lager like in appearance, golden and clear with a snowy white crown which turns to a thinner covering fairly quickly. Crisp and almost sharp in it’s citrus flavourings and body feel, the aroma being more subdued and subtle in nature. Refreshing but not ’Christmassy’ in any way, shape or form. A summer beer, not a winter brew.
