4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Cask at Charlie’s Pub, Copenhagen
Dark amber to brown color, hazy; a few lonely bubbles on the surface. The aroma is mild, vinous. It has a good body structure, very rich caramel flavor and malt, quite sweet, with a light woody astringency, light wine sourness that brings also a light fruitness; if possible, in the end there are some very light spices. The bitterness is quite high; the alcohol is present only as mouth warmer. Lovely.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Cask at the Wenlock Arms, London. Poured a cloudy, ruby-brown with an easy, off-white head. Sour malt aroma with faint fruits and earthy hops. Sweet, tart, malty flavor, also vinous with hints of sugar plums, apples and toffee, syrup and brown sugar. Medium bodied with average carbonation. Has a sweet, wine-like finish with a boozy kick and more sour notes. Awkward, but decent. Can’t really understand the tart, sour fruit notes.

Apparently an unofficial alias for the Christmas Ale after Christmas.
Cask (White Horse Parsons Green)
7 lovely sweet spicy, clove I’d say, appley aroma.
4 Deep red, next to no head.
8 glorious sweet toffee-apple retronasals. Touch of mushroominess, a little old-ale nuttiness too
5 Sticky sweet palate, no carbonation. Finish to die for, initially a sweet malt rush, quickly a wave of olde mushrooms, and then a gloriously resiny bitterness, which lasts a long time.
16 I often mark down such sweetness, but like Thomas Hardy’s you sometimes just have to forgive it.
