The_Osprey (2499) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 24, 2014
500ml bottle as a gift, 3.8%. Clear dark amber, sparkling, decent foamy off-white head. Aroma is honey-ish syrupy malt, musty, lightly metallic. Body is medium, pretty high carbonation, spritzy and quite foamy. Taste is tangy, metallic malts, thin and watery, soft bitterness. A slow drinking bitter due to metallics and over-carb. Really not that drinkable, gassy. Not for me.

tinylightsrecs (292) - - DEC 6, 2014
Bottle from Lidl Wrekenton. Pours chestnut brown, flavours of nuts, berries but a little faint. It's ok for a cheap beer but not too exciting

Mr_Pink_152 (1423) - Lincoln, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - DEC 6, 2014
500ml bottle from local supermarket. Deep golden coloyr with thin white head. Very light hop aroma. Taste is mainly sweet malt. I didn’t pick up on the spice.

johndoughty (4148) - cheslyn hay, West Midlands, ENGLAND - DEC 30, 2013
Bottle. ( Clear ) Typical signature flavour. Some spiciness but lacks body. Pleasant but not really a Christmas beer.

Beerbaron42 (49) - Hampshire, ENGLAND - DEC 27, 2013
Bitter is the word. A nice flavour but not very full, bitter on the taste and on the palate. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

peter48er (180) - Liverpool, Merseyside, ENGLAND - DEC 26, 2013
500ml bottle. Nice white head. Light red in colour. Reasonably bitter with some fruit notes. For it’s abv enjoyed it much more than anticipated.

richc (239) - Bolton, Greater Manchester, ENGLAND - NOV 18, 2013
Aroma has a lot of sweet caramel notes with a hint of sugariness and may be a touch of spice. Flavour loses most of the good elements of the aroma and leaves a lingering watery bitterness. This is an OK beer but in no way outstanding.

Garrold (2133) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - OCT 23, 2013
Bottle (short dated) from the local offy. For the grand sum of 80p! Clear, reddy brown with a lovely, creamy, lasting, off white head. Looks good! Aroma of sweet toffee maltiness. Some fruit. A hint of hops too! Taste is a slightly burnt, light sweetness. Actually quite enjoyed this. Especially for the money.

olio (6888) - Tampere, FINLAND - APR 6, 2013
50 cl bottle.
Originally rated on 20101127.
Pours clear amber color with a small head. Aroma of sweet malts, caramel, some mild hops and fruits. Flavor of sweet fruits and malts, caramel, toffee and hay. Not very pleasant.
