COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask, Seasonal - January & February.
Brewed with crystal malt and a dash of blackberries, Jack Frost delivers a fruity, robust yet refreshing flavour that lingers long on the palate.

NOTE: Most Fuller’s beer in the US is served by handpump kegs and not a cask. Ask your server.

Rune (9236) - Tromsø, - FEB 6, 2013
Half pint shared with Finn, cask by handpump at NWAF ’13. Bright amber coloured body, fragile lacing to the glassware. Resinous hops to the nose. Juicy malt taste character supported by caramel and bitter berries towards the ending. Nice winter session ale (Manchester, 23.01.2013).

Svesse (6885) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - FEB 14, 2015
(Cask at Akkurat, Stockholm, 10 Jan 2015) Reddish amber colour with dense, beige head. Malty, fruity nose with dried fruit, dark bread, raisins and aromas of spices. Malty, slightly fruity taste with notes of caramel, dark bread, dried fruit, blackberries, a touch of cinnamon and a gentle bitterness. Medium body, with a certain sweetness. Fruity, spicy and quite well balanced. Quite nice.

Pours a sort of ruby amber colour. Smells of fruits and berries and the taste is malty.

Vladivostok (322) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - DEC 21, 2014
Slightly sweet, malty beer with hints of autumn fruits and oddly, mint. Not a huge aroma and otherwise fairly standard but still quite drinkable despite the sweetness.

uckelman (383) - Durham, ENGLAND - DEC 18, 2014
Cask at the White Hart, Hilingdon. Clear, ruby red. Blackcurrant strong in the nose. Light body for a winter beer. A bit too sweet for me, but not a sticky finish.

hirigalzkar (2512) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - DEC 18, 2014
Cask @ Queens head. A darker session beer perfect for the winter months. Notes of marzipan, figs and herbal hops.

Lilja (2087) - Malmö, SWEDEN - DEC 14, 2014
Fat på Bishop Gustav. Smak och doft av malt, karamell, röda bär med toner av äpple. Lätt kropp, lagom beskam, liten kolsyra, beska med smak och granskott och tall.
