maeib (8598) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - JAN 11, 2011
Cask Conditioned handpump Cordwainer Northampton. a mid brown coloured beer with a whitish head. The aroma has a hint of fruit and spice. There is plenty of house yeast and sulphur in the mouth. There is a touch of fruit. Although drinkable, with a name like it has it should be so much more.

berkshirejohn (4395) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - JAN 6, 2011
Cask at the Prince Arthur (JDW), Fleet. Copper coloured with a loose cream head; light, malty aroma with just a touch of sulphur; lots of sour fruit flavour at first, but this quickly disappeared leaving some caramel malt and a touch of spice - perhaps ginger; gently bitter to finish with some fresh green hops.

Cask handpull, The Wharf Inn, Welford. Pale chestnut with a lacing cream collar. Supermarket-own weetabix and cornflakes, sneeze of cinnamon, copper penny bitterness. Dismal.

madmitch76 (14449) - , Essex, ENGLAND - DEC 27, 2010
16th December 2010. Spoons - Hamilton Hall. Clear amber beer, decent creamy of white head. Light soft palate. Sweetish mildy spiced cake. A little hop jars against the sweetness, there is also a whisper of sulphur. Almost achieves it’s title but was more like iced Christmas Cake to me. Amusing, fun and tasty beer.

harrisoni (13256) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - DEC 27, 2010
UPDATED: JAN 2, 2011 Cask handpull at Westgate JDW Canterbury. Mid brown colour lasting beige head. Yes some Burton snatch on aroma and flavour yes some fruity malt but I am struggling to identify any spice. Reminded me of Pedigree to be honest. Re rate at a Marstons pub n Ashford. Well less Pedigree like elements and more malt. But still cant mind those spices

KnutAlbert (6012) - Oslo, NORWAY - DEC 21, 2010
Cask, Geroge Street ’spoon, Edinburgh. Malty beer, glowing brown, fine use of spices. Nutmeg most prominent, but some ginger, too. Dry spicy finish.

hughie (3996) - Bedford, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - DEC 20, 2010
Cask at Bankers Draft (JDW), Bedford. Amber with a white head. Sweet aroma. Full malty taste, very sweet and really rather delicious. No sign of spice. Some bitterness. Simple, unsubtle, and just right for a snowy day.

tommann (2620) - Dudley, West Midlands, ENGLAND - DEC 15, 2010
Cask at the Bridge, Kingswinford. Pours dark brown with a medium head. Aroma is slightly like Christmas cake spice. Taste is some Christmas spiced malt to start and apple on the finish. Ok, but could do with being stronger.
