COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask and bottle conditioned; Winter
Kentish spicy, red berry, ruby ale. This is a holiday beer, a big spicy rye and red berry fruity one. With a red hoppy nose, just like Santa. (And a gentle kick, like Rudolf)

Just boring. As is normal with Gadds they churn out so many mediocre beers. Hops are quite prominent. Alcohol hidden. Was looking forward to trying a stronger beer but was very disappointed.

fonefan (34743) - VestJylland, DENMARK - FEB 21, 2013

Bottle 330ml. @ ChrisO Snow Tasting.

Murky medium amber orange colour with a average, frothy, good lacing, mostly lasting, off-white head. Aroma is moderate malty, caramel, fruity, moderate hoppy, orange - citrus. Flavour is moderate to light heavy sweet and bitter with a long duration, riped fruit, yeasty, hoppy, peel bitter. Body is medium, texture is oily, carbonation is soft to flat. [20130120]

FatPhil (9281) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - FEB 11, 2013
500ml bottle (Snow@ChrisO)
Marmalade colour. A bit yeasty aroma. Sweetish malts. Nice in the mouth, pleasantly malty, nicely bready, but well balanced hops too. A little spicy - could eb the rye. Whole is better than any of the individual parts.

Bov (9443) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - FEB 5, 2013
courtesy of Lucien Vetter - hazy dark amber beer; no head retention; grassy hoppiness with notes of valerian; medium to full-bodied, low carbonation, a bit mineral, hugely dry, pretty long grassy and herbal hoppy finish with notes of caramel and berries - unusual and deeply interesting

Leighton (10767) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 26, 2013
Bottle at the ChrisO Snow Tasting, London - thanks to some generous bloke, obviously. Pours lightly fuzzy auburn with a fine, white cream head. Bready malt nose, some ripe fruits. Medium sweet flavor with light leaves, earth, semi-dark malts, dry fruits. Medium bodied with fine carbonation. Moderate warmth in the finish, faint tangy berries, dry sweet bread, mellow earth. Pretty OK stuff on the whole.

Scopey (6711) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 22, 2013
Bottle at ChrisO Snow Tasting, thanks to Ian. It pours cloudy deep amber with a tiny beige head. The nose is sweet, over-ripe plums, raisin, prune, red berry and brown sugar. The taste is caramel, toast, decent bitterness, red berry, date, prune, salted nuts, citrus peel, soap and some alcohol warmth in the finish. Medium body and moderate carbonation. Good balance. Solid winter warmer.

Theydon_Bois (8273) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - JAN 20, 2013
UPDATED: JAN 21, 2013 Bottle, thanks to Ian at Chriso Snow Tasting 20/01/13. Hazed dark maber, thin off white head that clears to a few bubbles around the edge. Nose is spiced apple, berry fruit, strawberry jam, hint of cinammon. Taste comprises strawberry liqourice chews, figgy jam, spice, berry fruit. Medium bodied with bite, soft carbonation, fairly smooth, some bitterness in a spice finish. Decent.
