With Christmas fast approaching we have exciting news from the Pistonhead Lager brewery. This Christmas we will be introducing a brand new brew to the line up aptly named ‘Christmas Carol’

The Brewmaster’s thoughts and inspiration:

A Christmas beer should be dark, mellow, complex and interesting. The mix of four malt varieties produces the right flavour and body, and the combination of black malt and caraaroma extract give the brew its flavourful burnt and roasted character

Colour: Dark mahogany red

Scent: A balanced hops flower scent with notes of grapefruit and citrus.

Flavour: Full-bodied and slightly burnt malt flavour that is balanced by fresh notes of hops and citrus aroma. The bitterness is balanced by the sweetness from the light caramel malt.

Malt: Light Caramel Malt, Pilsner Malt, Black Malt and Caraaroma Malt.

Brewing: Pistonhead Carol Christmas Edition’s mashing is done using an infusion technique. The wort is then brewed for 70 minutes with a total of three different kinds of hops.

Alc: 5.6%
