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. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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.

I am drinking this as I am playing trivial pursuit on Christmas Day. Perfect for this situation. Dark brown. Tastes ok. You don't have to think about it ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

BREWMUSKCLES (2234) - New Jersey, USA - DEC 25, 2012
rich with golden raisin and scratchy bodied malt and some peat. sweet with caramel which gives a light roast and gravy master body and taste. finishes in the raisin with a dash of hop. golden with a bit of amber and white lacy head that lasts.

Gift from someone at work, very kind it was. Smells like nuts. Wife is watching Merlin. May have a nap.

Bottle. Pours clear dark copper with small white head. Aroma is roasted malt, apples, green raisins, rye bread, butterscotch and sour dough. Taste is light bitter and light acidic. Body is watery and quenching with good carbonation. Finish is medium long and dry with notes of fruit, wine, malt and cereal.

I liked this although I have to say that it tasted very much like a standard winter bitter. Not sure it reminded me of Christmas, it’s not very exciting or plum pudding or anything. A good medium bodied medium flavoured medium bitter beer.
