Bavarian Winterfest Wheat (Marks & Spencer)

Pours a lovely deep malty brown. Smells of burnt caramel, cloves and banana.

Delicious malty taste, like brown sugar with malty edges, quickly flooded by flavours of ripe banana, hints of vanilla and gentle spices, maybe nutmeg.

The finish is warming, sweet with a little bitterness. Brewed by Arcobrau for M&S, their brewing expertise for this style is clear.

8/10 A wonderful version of the standard wheat, warming, spicy, perfect for a bonfire.
