Beername Xmas Down Under
Beerdescription

A rich brown Christmas ale. Chocolate and crystal malts give flavour which is balanced by soft hoppy spiciness from the hop which is Hallertau Hersbrucker, a variety grown in Germany. An early recipe, probably 1996 or 1997 brewed for the now defunct wholesaler Beer Connosieur.
