Advent Beer Calendar 2007: Day 21: Young’s Christmas Ale

Young's Christmas Ale (on tap)Last year around this time I picked Young’s Christmas Pudding Ale, and I wanted to pick something from them again—and fortunately, that’s not the only Christmas beer they offer. So today I’m picking their Christmas Ale—the catch is (like some of the others I’ve picked) it’s available on draught only. (At least, according to their site right now—BeerAdvocate shows a picture of it in the bottle).

This beer breaks the mold for a seasonal a bit in that it’s an English Bitter style at only 4.3% alcohol—but really, after so many spiced, strong, darker seasonal beers, who wouldn’t want to take it easy and toss back a few session bitters?

BeerAdvocate score: 4 reviews, 4.06/5, 100% approval. RateBeer score: 2.98/5, 41st percentile.

    Awesome series – I wish I had stumbled into it earlier in the season. Hopefully I’ll be stumbling a bit more now…
