Very smooth ale that suited the roast dinner. Light enough to be easy to drink but full flavored with Yuletide tastes. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

YorkshireG73 (38) - West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - NOV 22, 2014
500ml bottle @ room temp /19c as advised on bottle.Fruity berry aroma with herb / spice. Gentle taste of black fruit gum sweets circa 1986. Slightly crystalline sugary mouthfeel like finely liquidised dates. Cinnamony ginger. Slight chocolate hint. Hint of whisky oakiness. Would go well with crimbo pud / mince pies. Not bad for a crimbo beer.

Graham77 (266) - POLAND - NOV 22, 2014
500ml bottle. Red/orange colour with a very small white head which vanishes quickly. The aroma is sweet caramel and fruit. The flavour is similar but with a lightly spicy finish. Uninspiring ale though. Really quite poor. Smells better than it tastes. Not as full flavoured as you would expect of the high abv

joergen (21334) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - NOV 21, 2014
Draught at Taphouse. Clear orange colored with a medium sized off-white head. Sweet and fruity aroma of caramel and marzipan. Fruity flavor of caramel and dried fruits with notes of hops and marzipan. Hoppy finish.

SinH4 (175) - SWITZERLAND - NOV 19, 2014
Ruby color with small heads. English hops, smells like a stronger red ale. Bitter taste, a bit boozy. Weird bitter finish. Not really balanced. Smooth english ale carbonation, light-bodied. The aroma is nice, but the taste is really boring after the good aroma...

It comes in a medicine bottle, it smells slightly medicinal and it tastes very much like medicine. Not a nice ale

rauchbier (3627) - Isle Of Beer, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - NOV 13, 2014
Bottle, from Tesco. Red brown, thin short lived off white head and gentle condition. Pleasant fruity bit dry and sweet chocolate mixed with a slightly peppery hop note in the nose, quite dry and bitter in the mouth with a muted fruitiness and some hints of yeastiness, strength is well hidden, finish is slightly hop bitter and has hints of berries and chocolate lingering

BAE (15) - NORWAY - NOV 13, 2014
UPDATED: NOV 14, 2014 Red cognac colour, not enough foam, a hint of caramel, a little taste of medicine. Nice little bitterness. I expected more with this alcohol level.

Holmen1 (2716) - Stavanger, NORWAY - NOV 10, 2014
Flaske delt med Willy på brygga: rødlig kobberfarge med fint skum. Myk aroma med krydderpreg uten at det blir påtrengende. Smaken er balansert og med det myke krydderpreget gjør den til en god juleøl. Fint balansert bitterhet med tørr avslutning. Mot slutten av glasset går det over i noe som minner om pepperkaker.

WVHouseofBeer (871) - Kissimmee, Florida, USA - NOV 7, 2014
Excellent beer. Very sweet aromas and flavors of caramel, toffee, fruit with a slight presence of noble hops. Full bodied with a sweet finish. A nice sweet beer for the holidays.

Excalibur123 (170) - Soria, SPAIN - SEP 10, 2014
Presenta color ámbar claro con media capa de espuma que permanece en la copa; aromas a malta tostada, caramelo, dulce de leche y ciruelas pasas; en boca entrada aterciopelada y maltosa, con suave dulzor en el pos gusto, notas a pan tostado, cuerpo y carbónico medios en una cerveza inglesa que evoluciona según coge temperatura; alcohol bien integrado pero sus 500 ml se acaban sintiendo.
