Served in a Nonic Pint Glass

Eyes
Light brown body with a copper glow. Average sized foamy head collapsed and left a good amount of sticky lacing.

Nose
Floral hops really stood out. Strong backing presence of festive spices (think nutmeg, coriander, clove…. you know, your average wassail blend)

Mouth
Hops crossbred with spices hit the tongue first. The spices were pleasing… bold flavours but nothing too overwhelming. The brewery states they infused this red ale with ginger and orange peel… exactly what the tastebuds detected. The bulk of the spice lived in the malts. Semi-sweet notes of spice cake contained the vibrant hops, balancing this one out quite well.

Overall
Not bad at all. Well executed spiced brew.

Tastes like a Christmas tree in an IPA....in a bad way.
