imdownthepub (12590) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - DEC 27, 2008
Cask conditioned at a Wetherspoons. Amber to ruby with white head, hazed. Not particularly in great nick unfortunately, but a fruity, yeasty bitter with a caramel sweet character. Fairly average.

MesandSim (7117) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 22, 2008
A Mes rate: cask at Baker St Sporks. Dark copper with a ruby red accent and a decent off white head that leaves plenty of lace. Strong bready malt in the aroma with a lick of caramel giving plenty of sweetness. Similar flavour with hints of nuts and apple in the finish. Dry dusty note in the aftertaste. Rather boring.

[CASK: The Bull’s Head, Piccadilly, Manchester 14/11/06] A reasonable Christmas ale. Nothing to special but not bad.

Doppelganger (1388) - Dry County, Arkansas, USA - DEC 15, 2006
Cask, Gardeners Arms, (Plantation Street), Oxford. Shiny dark copper, dense-as-can-be cap of tan foam, lingering and lacing tenatiously. A picture perfect pint. Soft farmy hops, a bit of clean malt. Pleasant aroma, though a little bit low volume. Silky soft palate. Farmy, resiny hops, coppery malt. A lovely winter seasonal. A wholesome, honest beer.

KnutAlbert (6591) - Oslo, NORWAY - DEC 6, 2006
Handpump, Hand and Flower, Kensington. Brown/reddish ale with small head. Full malt, but dominated by the hops - lemongrass, resin, which linger for a long time. Very refreshing, a great beer.
