This is an average bitter, not very Christmassy and overall a lazy effort. Needs more spice and dried fruit flavours to make this a Christmas beer

Colour is ruby to copper. Basically no head. Some fruits, but very little aroma. Taste is slightly malty sweet, with some notes of fruit and dough. I didn’t pick up any christmas spices. Light body with a slightly creamy texture. Sour finish with a bitter aftertaste.

Jabic (431) - Brigantine, New Jersey, USA - NOV 26, 2013
Ar: Sherry oxydation - some dark fruit, leather, blueberry. Ap: Clear deep amber - medium off-white head with moderate retention, leaves a cap of big bubbles and a ring of fine foam. T: Toasted malt, plum, treacle - touch of butterscotch - toffee and dark malt, with some mossy hop flavor - finish is toasted malt and molasses. P: Medium-ligh body with high carbonation - finish is dry. O: I like the flavors in this beer - with a bit more sweetness and alcohol, it would be pretty spot-on for an old ale.

Oelbas (190) - DENMARK - NOV 17, 2013
Klar, gyldenbrun med et ikke særlig holdbart cremefarvet skum. Duften er præget af maltsødme og lidt blomsteragtigt fra humlen formentlig. Smagen er fyldig og sødlig, men i fin balance pga. humlen, som derudover giver en fin diskret bitterhed, der fortsætter i den ret kortvarige eftersmag ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Gylden brun med hvitt skum. Makt karamell. Søt og bare det. Trasig. Medium kullsyre

This has been staring at me every time I’ve been to fetch a beer from down the cellar, for months now. Well, I’ve done the right thing. I’ve supped it. It’s life has come to its rightful conclusion. Frankly, I think I should have let it carry on staring...

Amber in color with a modest head. Smells of sweet brown fruitcake. Medium nectar with creamy carbonation. A touch of sweetness with roasted nuts, fruitcake, spices, coffee and plum. Nice bittering on the finish. A bit like sarsaparilla with a kick.

Beer4000 (4521) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - MAY 6, 2013
500 ml bottle sampled in 2009. Clear amber body with a small beige head. Aroma is more than less caramel malt alone. Flavor is sweet malt, caramel and bitterness with a hint of fruit. Medium body and short aftertaste. A one-dimensional beer.

wlajwl (3924) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - MAR 14, 2013
Aroma is heavy malts and medium sweetness. The flavor is sweetish malts, mild nuttiness and a mix of tart fruit and slight sourness in the finish.
