"Hoppy Christmas Red" with Enigma.

Smells great, but doesn’t end up the Imperial Amber it presents as - astringent + English in the end. Enigma is, well… But easy and Christmassy enough.

Thornbridge are just not as interesting as they used to be. 3.75

Pours a light ruby coloration with a medium creamy head. Smells of citrus and caramelly malts. Taste follows the nose, with biscuity, carmelly malt, citrus and herbal notes. Also some red berries and a light, hoppy bitterness. Pretty decent Red Ale, but I don't really get the christmas character. There is a certain herbaceous quality to it, but really not a lot of spice going on there.
