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.

This is a ruby coloured ale with deep malt aromas. This is a good malty porter with smokey and coffee notes from dark roasted malts. A very good example of a porter.
