(bottle) Clear, dark amber colour with a firm and mid-sized slightly tanned foamy head. Slightly toasted malty aroma with caramel, hints of caramel and a mildly spicy and fruity hoppy touch. Moderately bitter and slightly sweet flavour, light to medium bodied with a well-carbonated mouthfeel. Initially malt-accented toasty taste with caramel and delicately nutty notes, accompanied by a rounded spicy and fruity hoppy blend; quite dry and bitter hoppy finish with a balanced toast-malty touch. Not really Christmassy but nevertheless a rounded British Ale. 01.III.13

A bit of a teaser. A beautiful deep copper colour with a impressive off-white head. Well carbonated. But the mixture of fruit, roasted malt, spises and hops is missing something in the balance between the sweet and bitterness. Not that it is a bad beer, but it have the potential for a exelent beer.

Bottle. Clear dark amber. Toast and cookie dough aroma, sweet maltiness with soft bitter undertones in the mouth. Medium-bodied and chocolate finish. Nice.

Maakun (321) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - MAR 9, 2014
Beautiful deep copper with massive off-white head. Apple, light roasted malts, herbal hops and some spices. Light bodied, full carbonation. Taste is good balance between sweet and nice bitterness in the finish. Good stuff.

Backlog. Tried a number of times on bottle. One of my favourite winter-seasonals. Fullers always delivers good beers, this isn’t an exception.

Den här ölen hade verkligen en ’julkänsla’ i sig, smaken bar toner av krydda, torkad frukt, äpple och trä. Kroppen var stabil och balansen närvarande precis så som man vill ha ’en.

Brukar inte English Strong Ales vara från 7% och uppåt?! Men vad vet jag, så kraftigare den i alla fall inte. Visst en tydlig sötma och rostade toner i aromen. Lite lätt i
