2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Dark red ale with not much head. Aroma is dark fruits and caramel. Flavour of sweet, roasted malts. A little bit dry with mild bitterness. No strong aromas or flavours here so it is quite difficult to say much about this beer.

500 ml bottle.
Pours a clear copper colour with a lacy, slightly off-white head. Aroma of pale malts, hops with some sweet honey notes. Flavour of decent English hops and a malty backbone with nuts. Alcohol comes through in the end a bit. Yet another average brew from Fullers.

Bottle. Pours amber with minimal beige head. Brown sugar, dough, and a hint of bitter. Pleasant nutty malt taste that has a surprisingly long citrus hop linger.

Bottle from Cracked Kettle. Nice amber body with top head. Notes of malts and honey. Taste is warming malts with plenty of sweet and spice. Quite syrupy in texture. Nice one

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Dark red with decent white head. Taste of dark fruits with vanilla, caramel and roasted notes.The flavours that were there were nice but they werenít strong enough and so the taste was somewhat lacking. Had a bitter finish. The beer was unfortunetly thin and a little watery. Overall this was drinkable but not Fullersí best.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Secret Santa Bottle: Amber hue with coppery highlights topped by a rocky head which left very good lace. The aroma has notes of Crystal and Maris Otter malt, honey, apple butter, hint of British Golden Syrup, crystallized ginger, hazelnut, and a touch of grassy hops. Taste is that of a fruitcake and grainy nutty cereal with a bit hop bitterness on the finish. A tad too syrupy and sweet, lacks the spicy note I hoped for on the finish. The mouth feel is tad slick and moderately carbonated, light alcohol and dusty dryness. Overall it is okay, hoped for more.
