Leighton (10868) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 28, 2013
Bottle in NH. Pours clear, red-gold with a fine, creamy tan head. The nose holds pleasant wintery spices, all nutmeg and cinnamon, some bready malts, suggestions of pumpkin. Medium sweet flavor with further bread and nutmeg, faint leafy bitterness, a bit of spicy cinnamon. Medium bodied with fine to average carbonation. Sweet finish with still more nutmeg and cinnamon, some ginger bread, lightly toasted brown bread. Very tasty. A solid spiced winter beer.

UPDATED: DEC 7, 2013 Cinnamon, cardomon & other spices dominate the flavor. Was better in the glass than the bottle which was overpoweringly unpleasant. One is more than enough.

11/25/13 gift for RAK week. Weak scent and average appearance give way to a pretty solid flavor. Apple, spice, nutmeg, tarty, nutty goodness. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Very balanced amber colored full bodied seasonal ale. Hints of cinnamon, nutmeg and vanilla. Creamy and airy head that dissipates quickly. Slightly bitter finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

This beer is very good. You really taste notes of cinnamon. It has a very warm taste to it which really complements the name of the beer. This is a really good seasonal beer.

The best winter ale so far tasted in 2013! Nice cinnamon, clover and spices flavor. This beer begs to be drink in front of a fireplace! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Poured from a bottle. Definitely some spicy notes on the nose, including nutmeg, cinnamon and some sweetness akin to pickled beets. Itís a very clear ruby-orange color with a thin white head. Itís more balanced than most winter warmers, and while itís got that sweet potato pie flavor (and a bit of a spruce-y flavor as well), itís not the big, high-ABV monster that a lot of beers of this style can be. Easy drinking, if a tad thin. Iíd buy it again.

Spice flavors are a little overpowering for a beer with such little body. Not a bad beer by any means but there are better Christmas beers on the market.
