Bath Ales Festivity
Smells of Christmas spices lead onto flavours of roast malts, dark chocolate and mellow coffee on the palate of this "specially crafted Porter".
Chuffed to hear that my favourite hop, Bramling Cross, is amid the ingredient mix, along with wheat as well as barley malt.
With its delightful richness and complexity, this is ideal food beer – think cheeses, sausage casserole, as well as the brewer's suggestion of shellfish. With its long finish it's good with chocolate too, as well as berry-fuelled puds!
5%; available in bottle and in draught, and online at Bath Ales
