The trend for Wychwood beers seems to be "Hit or Miss" at this point. Either their beers are good, or they are disappointing. Bah Humbug! was a decent ale, but not a Christmas ale. I was expecting something darker, something spicier, more flavorful, heavier, more alcoholic. This was more like a standard pale ale, nothing more. I was expecting something like Sam Smith's Winter Welcome, but this is far from it.

I felt a little more charitable toward this beer than Steve, mainly because I DON'T particularly like those nasty spices. But I will agree with him that this pretty much tasted like a standard English Pale Ale. It was pretty good, but now that I can add the label to my collection, I probably won't run to the store come Christmas to stock up on it.
