Like a weak & watery Jager on the tongue. Spicy & fruit, quite Christmassy & cakey. Light to medium body, soft palate texture, short & spicy finish.

Cask (gravity dispense). Beer #22 at Chelmsford Winter Beer Festival on 3 February 2011. Not that black and quite sweet. Caramel dominates. Maybe some hints of spice but I didn’t pick up any orange. Mouthfeel is quite light. Not really my thing.
