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 and a quick following hop bitterness and aftertaste.
A winter ale 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.
