Flavours were malts, molasses, grass and bitterness. Aftertaste was malty, bitter and mildly sweet. A nice malty bitter.

tombyars (1411) - Saltcoats, SCOTLAND - FEB 29, 2012
First tasted this in the Three Judges, Glasgow in December 1994. Cask, handpump dispense. Clear pale garnet red in colour with a thin white head. A hint of berry fruit in the short aroma. Thin resiny mouthfeel and good lacing. Pale malts give a digestive biscuit base with sweet raisin fruit present. Spicy hop resins give a dry herbal flavour to the bitter aftertaste. Finish is malty with sweet glycerine fruit and burnt candy floss evident. A decent session ESB and well recommended.

Cask@Pigs Ear Beer Festival 2011. Copper colour, small off-white head. Aroma is fruits, mild floral and nectary notes along with some bitter grassy and caramel malty notes. Flavour is similar in a nice balance. Not very much Xmas in this beer, which is a good example of a quite tasty ESB.

Cask (handpump) at the Market Porter on 4 December 2010. Bright copper colour. A little caramel on the nose and palate. Some fruit. Touch of sweetness tempered by a moderate, tangy hop presence. A very decent strong-ish bitter, although I’m not sure what makes it specifically a Christmas beer (except the time when it’s available of course).
