3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Hand-pulled half-pint on 11th Jan 2014 in The Fox, Chetwyn Aston, Shropshire.
Amber body with a smooth white foam on top.
The beer had a malty start with a hop dry finish, the nose and initial taste was of semi-sweet molasses, they in turn gave way to the hops asserting themselves towards the end of each sip. There were hints of spice and wintery notes from something, nothing over the top, but this was tasty and Christmassy without it being in your face.

On cask at JDW, Stone. Pours amber with a white head. I don’t know what to make of this, it was very sweet, quite strange but certainly different to many Xmas ales.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cask (gravity dispense) at the Pigs Ear Beer Festival, London on 6 December 2006. Attractive deep ruby colour with a scant head. Some juicy, chewy berry fruit in the aroma. Rather more of the same in the flavour. Quite succulent. Smooth but not soft with a little herbal bitterness providing some grip. Plenty of presence for 4.5%. Yeah, I liked this one.

Bottle. Bronze with low carbonation. Lovely spiceness with an infusion of herbs. This is a true Christmas beer not jusy one labelled Christmas with nothing distinctive about it. Comlex and very interesting it came as a very pleasant surprise. Check it out.

Bottle that dad picked up from Congleton brewpub (cheers dad), consumed Dinmore, Herefordshire 27-12-09 Pours reddy brown in fact on second glance maybe its a little darker than that actually. Taste is fruity and tangy with a little Christmas spice its not bad but I’m getting a bit tired of these bottles of run of the mill stuff and need something with a bit more oomphh.
