I'm not sure what to think of a brewery that seems to give most of its lineup novelty Christmas-based names, but this one is a nice offering.

Pours a lightly hazed gold with a filmy off-white head that left some good lacing. The aroma has pleasantly smooth grainy malt, light caramel and floral hopping. The flavour is slightly fruitier than the nose, and the grain presence is lessened, with the bitterness now also have a grassy dimension. It manages to be at once fairly plain, but also very quaffable, and its the kind of beer I could easily imagine sessioning in the pub and not really paying much attention to it. Medium body and carbonation.

Somewhat one-dimensional, but as noted its a pleasant drink, and a very respectable offering in a style that rarely impresses me.

Thanks to Jeremy and Karen for bringing this bottle back from England and sharing!
