Alpirsbacher Weihnachtsbier (Christmas Beer) is currently being served at the Cambridge on Ice cafe bar on Parker’s Piece. It’s a 5.6% golden yellow beer with a lasting foamy head, and it goes down easily for a strong beer, crisp and refreshing with a sweet malt flavour. I’m pleasantly surprised by this, and it’s nice to sup while watching people skating or, in most cases, stumbling akwardly round the edge clinging to the rails. With any luck this Black Forest beer will be available until the temporary Ice Rink closes on Sunday 3rd January 2010. Prost!
