Today’s pick is from the Burton Bridge Brewery in Burton-Upon-Trent, England: their Festive Christmas Porter. This is an easy-drinking holiday ale at 4.5% alcohol; it’s describe by the brewery as a "Fruity beer with a distinctive bitter after palate."
Personally, I hear "porter + fruit" and I can’t help thinking "fruitcake." (I’m one of those rare people who love fruitcake.) Yum!
