Bad Elf (4.5% ABV, bottle)
Surprisingly light and refreshing for a Christmas brew. It’s bright golden with a very slight off-white head. On the palate, festive spices, candied peel, bready malt, and some lemon. The aroma is light malt with a hint of spice and a little pine. The spice really lifts the brew.
Buy it: I was sent mine. It’s part of the 12 Beers of Christmas box from Beers of Europe.
