A fruity, spicy, good volume beer. On the sweet side. Could have been an excellent scandinavian ’juleøl’.

UPDATED: AUG 4, 2004 Bottle. Lovely beer. Good malty flavour, with some typical Shepherd Neame hop bitterness. A superbly drinkable beer, be careful it is 6.5%!

Bottled. Copper colour, foamy beige head, lacing. Fruitish aroma with weak bready hints. Also weak caramelly hints and very weak hints of alcohol. Flavour of sweet malt along with some breadish and roasted notes. Also some hoppy notes. Very smooth flavour and palate.
