4.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
I like the color of this lager. The cinnamon and ginger are subtle, additive but balanced. This has an nice balance of body and hops. Head retention is moderate. The warming is great for a cold day up north. This beer is easy to drinking but not overly complex.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from B&M, Birmingham. Not too bad this. Had elements of a nice Bock - brown sugar, dark mushy malt grass, some warmth (not much but some). Smooth enough.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Copper coloured, good thickish white head. Lovely nose of spice/malt/caramel/herbs. Smooth, malty palate with toffee and spice creeping in on the finish, good body, and a nice long finish.....really like this, especially at 50p from B&M, I just bought one bottle, I’ll head back down tomorrow, hopefully they’ll have had a delivery!

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from a while ago (obviously)
Copper color with a large head with a nice amount of lacing, solid. Sweet malts and light alcohol in aroma along with light chocolate, light fruit, caramel, and maybe baking (cookies?) Flavour is similar with caramel, malts, fruits and a hint of spice. Finish isn’t strong enough at the end but it works quite well for a winter brew. Solid work.
