White Christmas (4.8% ABV, bottle)
A pale Christmas beer, which makes a nice change. Clear golden, with a white head. The aroma is cirtus peel and festive spices, the latter carrying through to the palate. Lemon and orange — peel and pith — balance nicely with bready malt. It’s zingy, aromatic, and as Christmassy as a glittery bauble. Different to the usual festive brew, and very enjoyable.
Buy it: I was sent mine. It’s part of the 12 Beers of Christmas box from Beers of Europe.
