January’s Ales

Hello

Jon here

I collected quite a few beers over the festive period and never got round to drinking them. I always thought that most Christmas beers were a bit of a gimmick. Thankfully I have proved myself wrong. Check out my reviews below.

Humpty Dumpty Brewery
Christmas Crack
Strong Winter Ale
7.0%
Wow. Strong. Dark murky brown colour. Sweet malty taste. A cracking beer (lol).

Thwaites
Yule Love It
4.0%
Pale amber ale. Good fizz but not much otherwise. A session beer at best.

Batemans
Roses Nosey
4.7%
Dark red brown colourful and full bodied like any other Batemans beer. A few Christmas flavours, an all round good beer.

St Peters
Christmas Ale
7%
Fruity and full bodied. A bit too sweet with an unpleasant taste. Disappointing. I expected more if I’m honest.

Hardy & Hansons
Rocking Rudolph
4.2%
A full bodied malty beer. Dark red colour. Easy drinking with hints of Christmas fruits. Very sessionable.

Wychwood
Bah Humbug
5.0%
The usual distinctive Wychwood flavour. As the bottle says it is full of Christmas cheer which is definitely true. Cinnamon and Christmas spices with a sweet caramel taste. A very good beer indeed.
