Santa's Beard (Brains)

Santas Beard (Brains)
Name: Santa's Beard
Label: "The Perfect Christmas Ale"
Brewery: Brains
ABV: 4.5%

Rating: "Santa's Beard blends five malts - Pale Ale, Munich, Crystal, Brown and Chocolate malts - with roasted barley to create a dark beer with a rich depth of malty wonderment. With flavours of caramel, burnt toffee and roast coffee balanced by a sweetness from lactose sugars, this is a luxuriously sumptuous sweet milk stout, perfect for Christmas. A great accompaniment to aged cheese or rich, chocolate puddings."  The last of the Christmas themed ales for this year, the decs are down, work is looming. Big fat sad face! On a positive note... er... beer! Yay beer and games!

Game: I thought I was getting good at Forza 5 so I decided to turn off all the assists. Then the track suddenly turned into an ice rink so I quickly put them back on again. Well in reality I've just got the traction control thingy switched on. I mean seriously, who the heck has breaking assists turned on? I don't see the point. Although I do have automatic transmission on which I guess is the same but opposite? I don't know. I don't even know what I'm talking about. It must be because the hols are coming to an end. I'm just seeing that as an excuse to drink more ale anyway. That's my New Years resolution. Drink more beer! Forget abstinence! Happy New Year folks!
