Bah Humbug! Christmas Ale

Wychwood Brewery

England

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.
