A well balanced seasonal bitter with only a light fruitness. Makes for a good session beer.

Theydon_Bois (8100) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - DEC 18, 2013
Gravity dispense at the Quinns Head, Twickenham Stoop, 15/12/13. Had a lit up collar even on the cask! Clear dark amber/light brown with a moderate beige head that thins to edgeing. Nose is dark fruits, toffee, tobacco, brown bread, brown sugar. Taste carries less depth than the aroma with dried orange, bready malt, light spice and dark fruit. Medium bodied, moderate carbonation, dry closure with light bitter notes. Been a good few years since I’ve had this dull offering but a rate is a rate !

Quite hoppy smell. Very dark in colour. Almost can't see through. Lovely taste. Hardly any aftertaste. Very drinkable ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

gegwilson (1026) - North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - DEC 13, 2013
Cask in the Tapas Bar, Darlington. Quite sweet and fruity for a bitter. Strong biscuity notes. A decent session berr, but nothing particularly interesting or Christmassy about it.

Cask at the Prince of Wales, Birmingham city centre. Russet coloured, super smooth Xmas ale. Not massive flavour, but well done and drinkable. Some mulled notes, cinnamon etc.
