3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
(swing top bottle) Cloudy, bright amber colour with a big and slightly tanned foamy head. Sweet and yeasty (cara-)malty aroma with spicy notes of cinnamon, ginger, pepper and vanilla, accompanied by citrus-fruity hops. Moderately sweet and slightly bitter flavour, medium to full bodied with a smooth carbonation. Cara-malty and slightly yeasty taste with Christmas spicy notes like gingerbread and cinnamon, rounded up with a citric fruity hops-character; moderately sweet malty and slightly bitter hoppy and spicy finish with a calm alcoholic bite. Smells and tastes like the stronger version of the CB Brown Ale. 26.XII.10

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bügelverschlußflasche: Hazy and amber, mid-sized creamy off-white head; sweet malty-fruity nose with a yeasty touch and a tinge of cinnamon; uniforme sweet flavour, almost full bodied, sticky; solid sweet-fruity finish, X-mas spices (cinnamon) detectable. Presumably a well crafted Ale, but too sweet for me......
