3.6/5  rDev +2.9%
look: 4.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Deep red-amber with a lovely pad of creamy foam. Lacing is thick and sheeting. Very appealing to look at.

Caramel/toffee, cereal English maltiness, a little wintry spice, and earthy tones. Simple, but uncompromised.

Hoppy notes of orange and earthiness mesh well with a sweeter caramel grain with cereal, toffee, and toast. Bitter, but unaggressive. Nice overseas flavor, not dissimilar to an ESB.

Drinks soft and wooly. Has a tiny bite of carb. Alcohol is somewhat noticeable.

Good, but not great. It's a standard, but pales in comparison to other Christmas solids.

Serving type: on-tap
