Poured from the bottle, a light brown with a large frothy head. A light malty aroma. A very malty flavour, but a bit carbonated.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
500ml bottle from Morrisons. Reddish brown beer, with thin beige head. Bit of boiled sweet. Some nice nalts, ok in mouth. Good malts run on with a goodish pepper hop finish. Not as good as on draught. Again that boiled sweet flavour lets it down. Some brown sugar

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Amber beer with a brief off-white head. Aroma was complex: first malt, then a hint of pepper, followed by a citric note. The taste was sweetish caramel malt with a mid bitter finish. A run of the mill session beer that wasn’t redeemed by the unpleasant leering Santa on the label.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: APR 28, 2011 Bottled - An amber coloured beer with a pleasant whitish head. The aroma is malty and fruity, and there is some grassy hop. The taste has some orange fruity hop flavours together with some heavy malts. A little over busy in the mouth. Score 3.0
Subsequent ratings scored 3.5 and 2.6. Score unaltered

1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 5/20
(on bottle)Not what I´m use to in this category; what a weak example. Very vague nose of roses and malts. Amber colour and no head. Watery mouthfeel and a average malty taste. Best part is the dry finish, making you finish the beer.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Copper color with small head. Lightly malty and nutty, iron, weight is on the firm bitter finish. Lacks body, fizzy pasteurized mouthfeel. Pleasent enough but forgetable.

A clear amber beer with a huge orange head. The aroma is sweet nutty, slightly spicy and with slight notes of citrus. The flavor is malty and very nutty - almost burnt, combined with caramel, citrus and some spices.
