3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Missed this one last year and was sad, so this year (2013) jumped on it. Pours a hazy rich amber colour with a warm cap, decent retention and sloppy lace. Quite a spicy nose with cinnamon, cloves, ginger and some light nutmeg with the fruity malt. Amber base malt flavours with the spices a little more balanced, with some hints of maple syrup. A decent easy-drinking Christmas spiced beer.
