We’ll set aside the fact that Christmas beers should by law be dark and 6%+; this was golden and clear with a thin white head; pale/lager malt initially then a burst of pudding fruit fruitiness then a bitter hoppy finish; no ordinary Christmas beer, but good all the same; in perfect condition in the Lymestone Vaults, Newcastle-under-Lyme.

Cask conditioned at a Wetherspoons. Gold with white, lacing, head. Quite a light beer, there didn’t seem to be anything ’Christmassy’ about this at all, reasonably dry and bitter with a light floral note, some fruity malt notes. Easy enough on the palate, just run of the mill.

Cask @ Monks Retreat. Pale gold, not the xmassy beer I was expecting... Tastes like it should be better than this; muted hops that are struggling to be tasted above slightly damp cardboard...

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Hand-pulled pint in my local Wetherspoons on 11 Dec 2012.
Slightly disappointed with this to be honest: not a Christmas or Pud feel to the brew at all. Pours a golden amber colour, mine had an off-white head that left some lacing on my glass, but it wasn’t ’ore inspiring’ in looks and presentation.
The nose was weak and earthy with just a single flower ester to give it a floral hint.
The taste was equally as weak and nondescript: bland and uninteresting are the best two words that come to mind. I was expecting a Christmassy explosion of flavours but all I got was a smooth blend of normal ingrediants that didn’t inspire or excite. Nothing actually wrong with the brew: it just wasn’t a Christmas Pudding sort of beer.
