Mmmmm. Another very successful bottle conditioned beer from Marston from the late 90s. This is liquid Christmas cake, complete with marizapn and icing. Yes, mixed peal, orange, almonds, beer soaked brown bread, all wrapped softly together in a warm blanket of alcohol. There is some awareness of age - a touch of damp brown paper, and a bit of dryness in the finish which has a memory of powdery hops.
