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.

imaragingbull (572) - Sydney, - MAR 27, 2014
Pours near clear amber orange with well retained off white head. Aromas of nutmeg, burnt toffee, grains, cinnamon and figs. Medium body, creamy mouthfeel, light breast biscuit sweetness, hints of mint mixed with the Christmas cake and cinnamon nutmeg spice. Finishes lightly sweet, lingering malt and spice with earthy hop character lingering. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Vells (1755) - Rīga, LATVIA - MAR 7, 2017
Usually not a fan, but this one was quite nice. Mostly because I am really thirsty X) Some decent malty background, caramel, some bread, and that cinnamon that you love in one sip and hate in another. Otherwise decent brew with moderate sweetness and moderate to light bitterness with some herbal hops in finish.

Bottle from Aldi. A slightly bland Christmas ale compared to others but after a while, one gets some lively Christmas flavours coming through.

Bah Humbug 5% abv brew, has a toffee like flavour, deep rich red colour with the taste of Christmas cake and other tastes of Christmas. A most enjoyable ALE

Marduk (6996) - Reval, ESTONIA - FEB 4, 2017
500ml bottle. Clear dark copper color. Small size, beige head, stays. Sweet, caramel, shy hops, malty in aroma. Sweet, lollipop, caramel, icing, bit of strawberries in taste. Sweet, strawberry-pear lollipop caramel in aftertaste. Beer is hidden. In some ways it feels like pear lemonade is mixed with beer and strawberry lollipop is the cherry on top. Weird stuff.

hrabren (1131) - Zagreb, CROATIA - JAN 11, 2017
0.5 l bottle from a local store in Slovenske Konjice, Slovenia. Thanks Zvonko&Monika. Light spicy, light malty, toasty. Nuts and dry fruits aroma, overripe fruit or candy. Perfumed. Light body, medium carbonation, abrupt finish. Spicy after. Nice, but weak.

Hazy brown body and a small diminishing head. Heavy taste of bubblegum, banana and spices. The taste is heavy sweet and light bitter. Sticky texture.

500ml bottle. Clear copper beer, small to medium off-white head. Nose is pear, malt, caramel notes, cinnamon, some sweetness. Flavor is malts and pear notes, some spice and berries. Finish is cinnamon and more pear, mild hops. Kinda odd, but the cinnamon is not bad.

Served in a Teku glass from a 500ml bottle. Pours clear dark brown amber with a thick pale beige head. Aroma is molasses, caramel, spices, dry fruits and a hint of nuts. Taste is malts, caramel, warming cinnamon, nutty, bitter-sweet with slightly bitter aftertaste. Medium body with medium carbonation. Very tasty X-Mas beer!
