This golden amber ale has a generous aroma of tropical fruit. The fruity flavour has hints of mangoes, oranges, lemons and sultanas. The pleasant floral hop balances this beer perfectly. It is a drying, warming, rounded ale to sip and savour at leisure.

[Bottle from ASDA] Toffeeish aroma with a bizarre aroma of pineapple sweets and some metal. Pretty carbonated and harsh on the palate, dry with some caramel and metallic notes. Not very festive.

pours a clear amber colour, fast disappearing foam; aroma of caramel and ripe red fuirts; sweet and with a high carbonation, decent bitterness, short and dry fruity finish - not very exciting

I found this very intresting and a beer i will probably have again if im stuck. Aroma is caramel toffee a bit of spicey floural hoips which are better than more british bottled xmas bers iv had. Taste is similar and very drinkable, carbonation is less harsh than expected, decent spicey finish.

Tranquillity (1861) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 2, 2006
Pinapple, juniper and soap in the aroma. Red-orange clear colour with small head. Quite fruity but a bit too watery for my taste. Good at first, but boring in the long run.

Bottled. Amber coloured. LIght foggy. Off white small head. Sweet and fruity aroma. Flavour is light vineous. Light notes of ripe fruits. A bit bland, but overall medium bodied. Is light spices and caramelly. Sweetish light bitter end.

First of all, I really like both the bottle and the label... Amber/orange, small offwhite head. A bit strange aroma from fruits and hops. Sweet and spicy flavor. a beer that is hard to really put words too, but I didnt like it very much.

[Bottle] Clear charneol colour. Aroma from stewed banana. No hops sensed here. Soft rounded mouthfeel, with vague hints of tofee. Bit sugary sweet, yet boringly thin.
