500ml bottle from Tesco. Small white head with some nice lacing, clear amber body. Nose has dried fruit, brown sugar. Flavour is more dried fruit, cakey, apple on the finish. Pretty sweet throughout. Mouthfeel has a nice bite to it, little carbonation. A good Christmas beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy

Nocturne (786) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - JAN 3, 2013
Cask at JDW. Vibrant orange with plenty of lacing spun. Nice hints of spices like ginger and cinnamon atop a base of orangey marmalade and light caramel. Not exactly a Christmas pudding in a glass but there’s something festive about it. Decent stuff.
