COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask; Seasonal - December.
As the snow piles up against the door and the wind whistles over the Santa sized Chimney of the pub, itís time to find a beer of noble heart and passionate tradition.
Chestnut red in colour the extravagance of this beer begins before you even raise it to your expectant lips, like the humble figgy pudding or perfect Christmas cake the explosion of flavour will transfix the tongue, warm citrus and candid peel flavours mix with the dryness of a drawn out fermentation. New season hops reach for the sweetness of the purest English malt to give the balance only a genuine drunk can achieve. As our White Horse slips on his jolly red nose for added seasonal cheer enjoy beer that brings back sweet memories of Christmas past!

Towey1989 (1663) - Stoke On Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - DEC 19, 2015
Cask at The Roebuck, Leek (Titanic) A clear brown colour with a medium off white head. Aroma of burnt toffee, red berries, subtle bready malts, slight raisin, plum and cherry. Taste of sticky toffee, slight bready malts, subtle spice, raisin, plum, cherry and earthy hops. Light bodied but a stodgy, sticky texture. A dry, spicy, earthy hop bitterness in the finish. Has a sweet, Christmas pudding like aroma and taste but itís also like drinking a liquidised Christmas pudding too. Itís quite sticky and Iím not a fan of it really.
