Hardy’s and Hanson’s – Rocking Rudolph 4.2%
This is a real Christmas ale as demonstrated by its flashing Christmas lights beer pump clip.
A real Christmas ale produced under the Hardys and Hansons name by Green King, originally an independent brewery form the 1800s in Nottingham, but taken over and absorbed by Green King of Bury St Edmunds.
The ale is a dark red gold Ruby ale, with a fruity spiced liquorice aroma and heavy fruit malt flavour with bags of depth and pleasant bitter sweet finish.
This beer was much more like it than my previous Christmas ale entry, yet I have seen other reviews saying it has little aroma or taste. It can only be that the recipe is very variable. id=”bpp_credits” style=”clear: both; float: right; width: 200px; height: 70px; text-align: right;” Edited with BlogPad Pro
