Beer : Merry Xmas & Happy New Year 2015
Brewery : Anchor Brewing
Style : winter warmer
ABV : 5.5%
It’s here,the big day has arrived and with it brings the traditional Xmas day drink in my household but a little earlier than I would normally drink it in the day,as when I was bringing a few bottles up from the Shed of Solitude to fridge I dropped it!…luckily the only damage was the top came slightly loose and it started to froth out so had to get it in a glass quick smart to avert the crisis
The beer itself is a classic winter warmer,brewed annually by Anchor for the last 41 years,with a different recipe,a different tree on the label ( this year it’s a Deodar Cedar,better known as the Californian Christmas tree) and only sold from November to January each year.
It’s always a lovely dark brew and this year has a slight smokiness and a peppery finish.
Well that’s enough from me today,all that’s left is for me to wish you and yours all the best for the big day and I wish you all a very Merry Christmas,or Nadolig Llawen as we say here in Wales!
