Dark brown with a hint of red. Clear. Not much head. Aroma of dark toffee. Still refreshing and well balanced. A decent attempt of a Yule ale from the UK.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
A dark deep red beer with a good brown head. Aroma is rather sweet with hints of fresh fruits and malts. Flavor is roasty malty with notes of coffee, nuts with a nice dark bitter chocolaty finished. Stands out from most X-mas ales in a pleasant way.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Tummy bug brown, with no mentionable head. I had it too cold, so there isn’t much I can say about the aroma. Flavour is woody, with plenty of alcohol, actually quite interesting, with a hoppy bitterness that lingers for a long time in the mouth. Medium bodied, it has plenty of carbonation. Must be consumed at a proper temperature, much higher than straight from the fridge.

500ml bottle. pours a dark brown with very small head. just noticed that this is brewed for xmas. I had it in the height of summer on one of the hottest days - still went down well! aroma is rich of malts and spice. taste is much the same and as per the description, a very smooth after taste. some spices right at the end.
