I think I may have a new favourite Adnams beer (until the next one I drink). This is one of the brewery’s oldest recipes, first brewed in 1890, which arguably goes to show that sometimes you just shouldn’t mess around with things, beer included. It’s a seasonal brew, available between October and January annually and I strongly urge you to seek it out. It pours a clear yet dark brown with a slight creamy head. It’s a beautifully robust beer that belies its 4.1% ABV. It’s a malt-forward beer and with strong caramel and fruity tones and a vague hint of spiciness. Absolutely lovely and perfect for this time of year when the cold weather is starting to set in.
