Kelham Island Blitzen

Kelham Island are producing some of the best seasonal ales this year. After the near disastrous flooding in their particular corner of Sheffield earlier in the year, Kelham have sprung back with avengence.

On tasting Blitzen, I got an instant hit of raisin and cinnamon. This is a mince pie in a glass. Further down the barrell the combination of malts came through with a warm banana aroma.

This really doesn't drink as strong as its ABV suggests so its one to be wary of. However its a pleasant winter warmer and being pale doesn't take anything away from the complexity of its malts. Sweet but not overly so, Blitzen has got to be a Christmas classic.
  • ABV 5.2%
