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 isnít strong enough at the end but it works quite well for a winter brew. Solid work.

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 itís fine for a beer in the winter.

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, itís 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. Didnít 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.
