3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle(bottled 5/10/10; purchased at Kris Wines): Orangey coloured, hazy, mid-sized off-white head with a good lace, mineralic-yeasty nose with traces of alcohol, died peaches and toasted malt; moderate to solid sweet flavour with a slight bitterness, medium to full bodied, relatively soft; lingering woody and fruity sweet-bitter finish. Pretty good, it needs obviously some time to ripe…

4.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
This is by far one of the best ’Winter Warmer’ style beers I have had. ABV of 7.5% adds to the warming aspect of this lovely ale. The mouthfeel and rich taste dominate, the aroma is slightly lacking but that is not what this beer is all about. A real treat during the cold/dark winter months.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle at pre Xmas tasting thanks to Leighton - 21/12/12.
Lightly hazed golden with a thin white head.
Nose is light booze, dark fruits, orange marmalade, spice.
Taste follows with more emphasis on the dark fruits, nutty tones, almond, spice.
Medium bodied, soft carbonation - a little over spritzy, bitter dry finish.
Ok - nothing special, alcohol is well disguised.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
500ml bottle, drunk on 4 December 2010. Bottled on 5 October 2010. Best before October 2015. Reddish amber colour. Good condition. Quite fruity aroma. A little hot alcohol. Some herbal bitterness on the palate. Fairly sweet. Pleasant enough but not as impressive as the previous Hepworth Christmas Ale. Probably a bit too young though. Flagged for re-rate if possible, with more bottled age
