lusikka (7680) - Tampere, FINLAND - NOV 6, 2010
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.

gracefullypunk (667) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAR 20, 2010
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.

KyotoLefty (9033) - Kyoto, JAPAN - FEB 26, 2010
Dark amber color wiht a nice, fine head. Caramel, fruit, and spice aroma. Biscuity malt flavor, spicy, with lots of caramel. Big malt. Nice.

TheBeerOrg (2145) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - FEB 22, 2010
Pours orangish amber with a fully receding white head. Notes of toffee, caramelized wort, nuts and plum. Medium to full bodied with moderate carbonation. Lightly sweet with nice fruity esters.

altonbrownd (5414) - Chevy Chase, Maryland, USA - FEB 20, 2010
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

angrybeerman (259) - Dublin, IRELAND - FEB 11, 2010
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.

BBB63 (6543) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - DEC 31, 2009
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.

Steely (241) - , SWEDEN - DEC 23, 2009
Preparing christmas the day before with this nice winter warmer. Dark amber color with a decent bubbly tan head. Buttery aroma with caramel, spice and hops. Bitter sweet flavor of caramel malt with a mixture of hops. Maybe a little too much of that dry bitterness coming through.
