flying_pig (1411) - SCOTLAND - DEC 23, 2013
500ml Bottle from Tesco (£1.50):
Malty with some biscuit and earthy hints coming through along with some caramel and background spice. There is some bitterness too and touches of fruit and sugar as well.
Caramel amber with a thumb sized, foamy head that is a slightly off-white colour and looks quite thick with good retention and little initial movement.
Earthy malts and caramel to begin with, followed up by plenty of bitterness and a few light fruits not nothing too noticeable on the front. There is some grain and a touch of spice.
Light-medium bodied, fairly smooth with only a touch of grain but it was a little bland, almost watery in places which was a bit of a disappointment. Carbonation falls somewhere around medium and the finish is a dry, bitter one.

Not a bad beer really and a bit of an improvement on some of the Christmas beers I picked up last year but sadly this one still wasn’t really all the memorable in its own right. Just an average beer.

Up in Edinburgh I was introduced to this very mild and incredibly drinkable pint. What a privilege. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

leaparsons (9779) - Wigston, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - DEC 20, 2013
Cask, Slug and Lettuce, Leicester. Hazy amber with a beige foam. Aromas are white grape and apple with toffee and festive spices. Floral with toast and bready dough. Quite floral. Flavours are sweet; earthy stewed apple with caramel and spices. Woody with low bitter lemon and a dry finish. Grew on me.

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
