Was put off a bit by the AWFUL label, but my local Alldays is selling this for 99p, presumably to clear as itís the beginning of June (BBE date is illegible) Anyway, this is a big full flavoured beer, packed with hops and malt...typical Batemans, lovely beer , must go back and stock up!

April 2007: Brown 500ml bottle. Poured into a Gordonís thistle glass (twice). Looks a picture, clear, dark terracota with a fine slightly off-white head. Aroma is sweet and Christmas pudding smelling, caramel and cinnamon come to mind. Tastes of hops and malted biscuits, fairly bitter, but the fruitiness in the aroma tempers the flavour to produce a very good beer. The mixture of flavours stay in the mouth, 4.9% isnít heavy, the mouthfeel reflects that. All in all, a very good beer. I had three pints of this beer with my Christmas dinner in 2006, I donít choose any old beer to have on that day!

Bottle, Nice copper colour, great aroma, complex and full bodied with lingering aftertaste but also well balanced. Really enjoyed this bottle, shame it’s only an xmas special. Currently £1.39 at Aldi - credit crunching treat!

Pours a two finger white head that fades slowly to a thin layer, leaving some lace. Crystal clear nice copper color. Light spicy, malty nose. Medium carbonation and medium bodied. Flavor is light spices and hints of caramel. $7.00 for a 500ml bottle from Tullyís Beer & Wine Wells, Me.

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

Bottled, Pasteurised. Dark brown reddy beer. Dark, puddingy winey notes, sultanas and spices. Would be good bottle conditioned.

highlandlad (1464) - Blue Mountains, AUSTRALIA - MAY 22, 2005
Yum. A flavoursome bantamweight English old ale that punches above its weight. Iím very taken with this. Amber colour with a rocky 2cm head. Moderate head retention, scattering of lace. Unusually tart citric aroma with spicy medicinal qualities - lime juice, piney hops and a hint of eucalyptus. Some dark malt buried in there. One of the most distinctive aromas I can recall. Thin to medium bodied, with a slightly oily mouthfeeel. Quite slight for an old but flavoursome enough to pull it off. Some caramel-sweet roast malt upfront and a tart spicy finish. I guess the spicy Christmas flavour comes from the Challenger hops. This is the best bottled English ale Iíve come across in months. (500ml bottle, Camperdown Cellars)

Bottled. Lightly hazy copper colour, firm head. Grassy cherry-like hops starts it off. Fairly sweet with firm, clean solid maltiness. Thereís chewy cookie malt with notes of dextrose. . The quite intense piney resiny hops create a long bitter finish. Iím actually rather impressed.
