Beautiful beige foam and a lovely caramel flavor with notes of orange peel. Beautiful rich spices characterize the taste and add a little cinnamon, orange peel and a little cilantro. Wheat malt shines a little through and it’s fine for a beer in the winter.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
355ml bottle from B&M Bargains - Clear copper body, with a creamy off-white head. Aroma is up front with metallic notes, followed by faint traces of floral notes, fruit, and caramel. As for taste, it’s mostly caramel, and doughy notes, with some faint sourness, a light floral taste, metallic hops, and a fruity finish. Not bad at all really for 79p!

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
5.5% 355 ml bottle from B&M. Didn’t get any of the spiciness, just a ponderous sweet malt heavy flavour. Almost indistinguishable from the S.A. Oktoberfest I had before, to the extent that I thought it might be the same beer with a different label.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from B&M Hounslow, nice dark red-brown with a big but fast-settling head. Bready and spicy nose, reminiscent of gingerbread. Body is a little too sweet, but otherwise nicely malty and toasty with a delicate nip of ginger and citrus, and a herbal bitter edge.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Dark reddish brown with a tan head. Aroma of sweet caramel malt. light spice. Light body, flavour is moderately sweet berries and light liquorice. Why is this called a lager?

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
355ml bottle from LCBO. 5.5% alc./vol. Pours a clear deep amber colour with 1 finger of lasting head. Lacing clinging to the side of glass.
Aroma of malts and caramel.
Taste matches aroma with spicy hoppy finish. Not bad, but nothing spectacular.

Slightly cloudy dark amber colour with a slight coffee coloured head. Taste of treacle, toffee with some Christmas spice,fairly strong (stronger than 5.6%). This was the bottled version.

Old rating. Bottle from Old Town. Cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger and grain on the nose. Slightly sweet on the palate with the spices coming out more as it warms up a bit. Dry bitter finish. Not bad.
