500ml, Freiburg sister city Guildford product redirected post festas by way of Bielefeld, ta! - Rich and fruity speciality malt and noble hops aroma: baked pear, tobacco, fresh strawberries on cream even - not necessarily Xmassy, but lovely in all seasons. Drinks like a more gentle and malt aromatic mild, well-rounded hop fruitiness complementing liquorice-coated Werthers Echte Maris Otters, with a dash of orange peel. - One has to admire the English for preserving a session drinking culture where a 4,4% ale can be taken seriously as a Xmas ale with, using none of the sugar and spice cabinet and at half the liver ransom it would take in Belgium. Nevertheless, #winter warmer would be taking it a bit too far... imdownthepub (15425) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JAN 5, 2016
