Merry Smithmas Ale
A strong Christmas beer that would make any reindeer’s nose turn red. Needs to stand a little longer than most beers to get a full spiced flavour.
Although the concept of Christmas or winter festival beers isn’t new, our modern versions are quite detached from traditional beers drunk at the time. Instead they are an experiment to see how you can stuff all those things you only have at Christmas into a beer.
A mixture of cinnamon, ginger, cloves and orange make for a Christmasy blend, but if you really want to this kit can be done whenever. You just might end up on the naughty list.
Merry Smithmas should come out about 5-6%, don’t worry if yours is slightly different so long as it tastes good.
