IslandHaole (1228) - Mililani, Hawaii, USA - FEB 14, 2012
A clear orange color with a short lived off white head. Quite malty, nearly rock candy sweet scent. Has a good balance, dances between sweet and has that Fullerís mineral saltiness to it. Canít quite pull blackberries from it but does have that somewhat fruity quality. Decent tangy finish.

Mad_Ferret (980) - SWEDEN - DEC 22, 2015
UPDATED: DEC 28, 2015 Draught at Bishops Arms Folkungagatan 21/12-15. Clear redish chestnut with a short beige head. Berries, caramel and nuts with some spicy grassy notes on the nose. Similar taste. Some caramel and nuts from the malt and then mostly slightly tart forest berries like blackberries and lingonberries and maybe some woody licorice in the finish. Medium to lighter body, soft carbonation and slight oily palate. Probably better as cask and now it was a bit too cold as well. Fairly boring and not very "warming" as the label said.

TorbenJensen (1452) - Valby, DENMARK - AUG 14, 2015
Roughly frothy ESB that the brewery chose to launch up to Christmas and therefore call a Christmas ale. It has a fresh aroma, the light soft fruit shines through with a little gentle hops. The taste is evident of blackberry contributing with good body and a little acidity that keeps a pleasant hoppy bitterness. As Christmas ale / winter ale, I think it is entirely wrong, but as an exciting alternative to the many harvest brew I think itís very good. The freshness, acidity and good body makes it well suited to the season, but Fullerís other repertoire is far more exciting than Jack Frost.

tomer (2880) - Rishon Le Zion, ISRAEL - MAY 4, 2015
Draught, medium stable bubbly head, clear copper to red color, frutiy aroma of plums and nectarine with some light caramel and light cakey maltiness, flavor of plums and cherries with some caramel behind and a just a hint of biscuity maltiness, fruity almost piercing sourness, light bitterness, long fruity aftertaste with a touch of hay. Good and very refreshing, nice twist on tradition,

On-tap at Porter&Sons. Clear amber brown with a huge creamy head. Caramel and bread aroma some fruitiness and spicy herbal notes. Sweet malty flavors, berries, honey, caramel, a bit metallic, a bit sour, dried fruit, some bitterness,but quite short finish. Thin bodied, grainy mouthfeel, light carbonation.
