US brewing giant Anheuser-Busch has unveiled the latest launch from its seasonal beers stable in time for Christmas.

The brewer said today (6 December) that Winter's Bourbon Cask Ale has returned for a second year. Winter's was only available in the on-premise last year but A-B has decided to roll out the brand across retail outlets

A-B described the 6% abv beer, brewed at its brewery in Fort Collins, Colorado, as "a smooth, robust brew with rich aromas".

Bruce Eames, innovation manager, Anheuser-Busch, said: "Fans of last year's draught told us they looked forward to the return of Winter's. We think they'll also be pleased it's now in bottles so they can enjoy it at home with a holiday meal or share with friends."
