COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Available in 500ml pasteurised bottles.
Previously 6.0%.
NOTE: The cask version (at 4.3%) has a separate listing.

Bah Humbug is a 6% abv brew using not just the traditional malted barley and hops, but also a big sprinkling of cinnamon. The effect of the cinnamon is to give a spicy, almost banana-like flavour as often found on German wheat beers; and this blends with the sweet-honeyed flavours of the Maris Otter barley to create a beer with all the fruit flavours of mince pies, Christmas Pudding and Christmas cake all rolled into one.

Pours dark amber, white head that quickly disappears into nothing. Aroma of cinnamon, orange, banana and slightly floral. Tastes sweet and spicy with cinnamon, citrus and banana flavours. Slight bitter after taste. The first Christmas themed beer I’ve had that actually tastes Christmassy.
