A nice little Christmas gift from a friend, this English ale pours a bright amber golden with nice thick white bubbles that dissipates quickly to leave a thin layer of foam and good lacing. Nose of citrus hops, light spice cake, pepper, bread, and sweet caramel malts. Flavors of sweet malts are offset by bittering and citrus hops. Light peppery aftertaste mingling with bittering hops. For being a "winter warmer" it is closer to many American IPA's out there. Decently balanced, and crisp good carbonation makes this a good gift for most good ale drinkers, especially those who like their IPA's with a bit of a bite.
Happy Holidays----Cheers!

Pours a thin straw yellow with a little head that leaves a trail on the glass. The smell has citrus and bread scents running through. The taste was a bit underwhelming but the warmth from the alcohol was nice with the citrus from the hops. Not a bad beer to have during the winter months.
