Nose
Delicate, buttery malt and fruit. Hop resins and a seasonal spruce accent!
Palate
Silky, buttery malt. Sweet yet with a good spike of dry, piney hop bitterness that also offers a suggestion of liquorice.
Finish
Lingering sweet malt. Hops push through adding dryness and bitterness.
Comment
An enjoyable, amber-coloured seasonal offering, presented in an attractive gift box.
