Leicester Tigers fans can now get their hands on the popular Festive Ale courtesy of club partner and Leicestershire-based brewery Everards
Festive Ale is a limited edition, indulgent winter warmer, which was incredibly popular last year in Everards pubs across the county.
A rich, dark ale with a glow of amber, it’s been brewed with English Goldings and Fuggles hops alongside premium Maris Otter malt and a touch of black malt and molasses to accentuate the sweet malts. The result is a lovely traditional ale with a dominant malt and a rich alcohol warming flavour.
Everards themselves described the beers as "a higher strength beer at 6% ABV, it has an indulgent, warming character with tons of flavour which makes it perfect for enjoying over the festive period as it tastes great with Christmas pudding, sweet mince pies and a cheeseboard."
Different to their usual minikegs, Everards range of limited edition minicasks are filled by its brewers with fresh beer directly from their cellar in Glenfield, Leicester, so it has a shorter shelf life but will last you through to New Year.
Everards communications co-ordinator Kia Ryan said: “We are asked yearly if we can offer our festive beers in a take home option for people to continue their celebrations beyond the pub and we are really happy to see this beer available in minicask for all to enjoy. It’s one of my favourites, it’s rich warming fruitiness just screams Christmas to me!”
