Pickled Santa

Relatively new entrant to the GA market, I picked this one up for $4.99 at Tower on Piedmont, Atlanta, GA, USA. 500 mL bottle, “F10 288” on the label. I’m not really sure what a “XMAS English Ale” is, but here we go.
Pour has gold clarity with a large, fluffy white head with some very good retention and lace.
Candied, bubble-gum type phenols and esters greet the nose.
The tastes reflect much of the nose, and there isn’t really a great deal of “spice” as such. Quite sweet but just about holds it together. A bit like an English Hefe in terms of the taste!! Odd! Some bananas. Gets better with warmth but still very light.
Very light and drinkable and not an especially good example of a Winter Warmer, but a decent brew.
