keepersj12 (2743) - Sicklerville, New Jersey, USA - APR 26, 2014
A nice Christmas beer with just a hint of the traditional spices. It still tastes like a beer and not some crazy egg nog like concoction.

Borresteijn (4860) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - JAN 10, 2014
50cl Bottle, thanks to my in-laws! Just slightly hazy golden orange/amber colour, white head. Aroma of nutmeg, some faded cinnamon, pale malts. Flavour is also lots of nutmeg, cinnamon, clove powder, grain, bitter powdery finish. Light-bodied. OK, but a little heavy on the spice, becomes a bit cloying after a while.

MannyGoldberg (164) - The big bad LDN, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 28, 2013
Cask at Greyfriars, Perth- 28 December 2013. Amber colour with not much lacing. Plenty of spices and sweet malt in the aroma. Flavour is banoffee type sweetness and mild bitterness. Better than expected. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
