Advent Day 19: Christmas Ale

2015-12-13 08.29.59

ABV: 7%

Shepherd Neame & Co. Faversham Brewery’s Christmas Ale is golden in colour with a small white head that disappeared almost as fast as it appeared. There is very little aroma and what is there is slightly sweet. The flavour is full of sulfur and has a lingering bitterness that is very unpleasant. The body is light and the carbonation is medium-high.

Rating: 1 / 5 – Drainpour, this reminds me more of a lager comparable to Carlsberg or Heineken than anything else, though perhaps a bit more flavour.
