Chelmsford Winter Beer Festival in KEGS. Cask. Almost clear dark amber beer, good bubbly pale cream colour head. Palate is light and semi dry, mild fine carbonation. Smooth malts, mild caramel semi sweetness. Bitterish dried fruits turning tangy. Semi dry finish brings a little spice and citric peel. Okay.

Cask@Charlies Bar, Copenhagen - pours brown with a off white head. Medium sweet bready and toasty malts, twiggy and herbal hoppy, some caramel, getting some dark berry fruits as well. Overall a nice winter ale.

Cask, The Hop Beer Shop, Moulsham St, 6th January 2015. Nice white lacing copper brown appearance. Nice hoppy nose. A lot of blackcurrants and a bit twiggy on the taste. A bit of an esb

Cask (Gallows Bird, Espoo, Real Ale Festival 2003)
Lovely rich colour, spongy head. Subtle, but interesting fruity and sweet aroma. Lovely smooth palate. Full taste - dark and roasty, but not going all the way to burntness. Like a winter warmer but without the alcohol - good winter quaffer.

Strictly speaking a Winter Warmer. Winter Warmers can sometimes be a Barley Wine or a Strong Bitter, but can also be an Old Ale. This had a soft (oh so soft!) malty base. This was all about the deep, deep, deeply delicious malt. There was a slight wine edge, and a restrained alcohol warmth that kept urging to burst through, but was held back by the smooth (oh so smooth) malt. Gone too soon!
