chriso (7396) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 5, 2010
Cask (gravity dispense) at Chelmsford Winter Beer Festival, 4 February 2010. Reddish copper colour. Definitely spicv but not too extreme. Good plummy fruit. Comes over more as a bitter with a twist than a full on spiced or fruit beer. Which is not necessarily a bad thing. Good if a touch unspectacular.
