Bah Humbug from the Wychwood Brewery in Witney, Oxfordshire, England pours a clear copper-ruby colour with a moderate tan coloured head that leaves minor lacing and settles as a thin collar. The aroma of this spiced winter ale is malt forward with a syrupy caramel tone, a peppery spiciness, a slightly sour ripened fruit tone, a touch of pine needles and a hint of cinnamon.
The taste of Bah Humbug has a caramel malt body with a crisp and spicy bite of cinnamon. A bitter, chocolaty taste is balanced by a sweet dark fruit taste that reminds me of plum. The finish is dry and mildly bitter. The ale has a medium body with a low carbonation level. A strong biscuit or bread-like quality weighs down the tongue and the aftertaste has a syrupy fruit quality.
