3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: DEC 6, 2012 Cask/handpump at the Red Lion. Nose was promising, with peach, a touch of banana, and green herbs, then the palate brought marmalade and burnt treacle, a hint of syrup and roast nuts, a little fruit-cake. The let-down was the harsh bitter finish.
Re-rate at the Twickenham Beer Festival 2012, light amber with a toasted caramel nose and a nutty, slightly toasty flavour and a dryish finish. A good cask-conditioned interpretation of the classic Bavarian style.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Cask, gravity dispensed, at the Cambridge Blue, Cambridge. Copper coloured with a ring of cream head; cinnamon and Christmas spice aromas; mulled wine flavour with autumn fruit - plums and blackberries - but also dry and biscuity; the finish is like a rich, brandy-soaked fruit cake. Excellent.
