3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
330ml bottle pours a brownish orange color with a small white head that leaves a few spots of lacing on the glass. Aroma is caramel with some light citrus. Taste is a citrusy and earthy hop bitterness with an underlying caramel malty sweetness. Medium bodied with mild carbonation. A decent winter warmer style brew that is only lacking the usual winter spices.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 11/20
(33cl bottle) 2012 Advent Calendar. Quick dissipating white frothy head atop an orange ruby body. Nose of canned vegetable and alcoholic English hops. Somewhat gross. Hard to believe that a nearly 8.5%abv fell apart like this. Watercress, tomatoes and bitter hops. Sorry but this didn't work.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
330ml brown bottle. Last bottle from the Craft Beer Advent Calendar 2012. Dark orangey pour, hazy, thin white head. Nose is a little lemony, caramel hints, mild fruity notes. Taste has grains, wheat, caramel, touch of cherry-like fruit. Slight tang at the end, citrusy, bit of grass. Lighter body than expected for a 8+ percent brew, carbonation is light. Doesn’t exactly scream American strong ale to me, but I ended up enjoying this.
