    7/10 Well I’m packing for a weekend away with the family. Usually the packing part is quite boring but not tonight…. I’ve found some left over Christmas beer! Now I’m definitely in the holiday spirit 🙂 This is a full bodied ale from Batemans brewery. It’s rich and slightly fruity.  Not overly “Christmassy” like some…

    7/10 I’m still trying to get through all my Christmas beers. (It’s a hard life!) Winter amber ale This is a really tasty amber ale. It has a slight winter fruityness to it but it’s not over powering. I could easily sink a few of these in July. I bet Santa does!! 5%

    8/10 Well it’s December, so let’s roll out the Christmas themed beers! This is another cracker from the master brewers at the Wychwood Brewery. I expected a mean, thick, dark beer to match the branding but was very pleasantly surprised.  It’s a warm brown coloured beer that tastes lovely. If a beer could taste like…
