Jennings Lakeland Ales – Red Breast 4.5%
This Christmas ale is a dark chestnut, ruby coloured ale, with a spicy aroma and sweet fruit notes. The taste is malty, with dried fruit notes and a quick following hop bitterness and aftertaste.
This winter ale is brewed using pale malt and traditional Fuggles and Goldings hops, celebrating the Victorian postmen called ‘Robin redbreasts’.
A good Christmas ale but may be a little too hoppy for some tastes.
Jennings Lakeland Ales Brewery is part of the Marston’s Group.
