A smooth blend of crystal, chocolate and pale ale malts modestly bittered with East Kent Goldings and First Gold hops, then finished with a late addition of Styrian Goldings to give that classic liquid Christmas pudding flavour.

Clear dark amber beer. Reasonable biscuit coloured head. Dry malty nose. Semi dry palate. Tangy orange, bordering on sour! A little mit of malt, what there is is rich. Hint of apple in the dry finish. Skewed methinks.

maeib (8749) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - APR 25, 2011
Bottled. A hazy dark brown coloured beer with a whitish bubbly head. Malty and woody with a bit of chocolate. Fruity and a touch bready. Not enough flavour for its strength really.
