2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
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...

1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 5/20
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.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
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.

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.

Bottle from Total Wine, Sacramento. Pours reddish brown with a modest beige head and a toasted malt aroma. There is a strange smoked malt and red fruit flavor with some spices and a slightly bitter finish.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Dark brown with small white head. Reminds me of under-ripe fruit, plums? Hints of burnt toast. Very faint spice, aniseed. Bitter aftertaste. Nothing Christmassy about this although maybe the fact I am drinking this in February is part of the reason. Got it for £1 in Morrisons today. I’m glad I didn’t pay more for it. Poor!!!

Yeasty, with light fruit. Very thin in mouthfeel, but that's what would be expected of this style of English ale. Altogether, a tasty ale for the holiday season - no bells & whistles, just a good, round ale.

Bottle. Pour is a dark tan with no head. Aroma is some earthy malts and dark fruit. Flavor is some sweet malt and again a dark fruit is there. This seemed really flat and lifeless. Thank you dear wife for the Christmas present. It’s a nice bottle.

Pretty well hopped to be a Christmas beer, but it works. Creamy malty with a nice balance.
