The 2nd Beer Of Christmas

Hill island Christmas Light Ale

Hill Island is a nice little Durham micro that I've tried a few bottle beers from. Quite fitting to post this the same day the Alnwick Christmas lights go on.

Pours a bright pale golden straw in colour. Nice spicy herbal aromas with a grainy medium to light bodied palate. The drying finish is dominated by herbal, spicy hops. It's an easy going little number and at 4.1% probably a good one to warm up on early in the festive drinking session.
