Hoppy Gristmas

Hopefully the last of the Christmas beers, the puns are starting to wear a bit thin in the new year now. Hoppy Gristmas is the second seasonal offering from Newmans in Caerphilly. Weighing in at healthy 5% (terminology deliberatly used to wind up the health Stasi, yes you Shenker), this light brown ale has an aroma of fruit and this is present in the taste as well. Some astringency in the aftertaste and a a subtle bitterness build up with some roast flavours to produce a good flavour. Liked the first pint and the (2 day) hangover is easing. May stay for another pint or two!
