A wonderful pint, like cross between a spicy Christmas pudding and a mulled beer. It looks good, it tastes good but it makes no sound, in a pub no one can hear it scream.

[cask at Bow Bar Winter Festival 2011, Edinburgh] Brown pour, very thin off-white head. Goes flat pretty quickly. Rather interesting aroma of sweet cinnamon and cloves. Touch of malt initially on the palate, then more clovey winter flavours, pumpkin and spice. Interesting [26012012]

Benjii (3049) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JAN 26, 2012
On cask at the Bow Bar Beer Festival, 2012. Pours a golden amber colour with a thin white head. Aroma of spiced pumpkin, nutmeg, cinnamon, caramel and alcohol. A huge spiced pumpkin flavour also with caramel, nutmeg and cinnamon again. Mild carbonation and an oily mouth-feel. Quite a dry finish also with lingering alcohol and a vegetal pumpkin flavour. Tasty.

McNeillR (2232) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JAN 26, 2012
Syrupy tangent, head lasting only a few sips. Strong gingery, orange rind warm nose. Well rounded sugary fizz on initial palate doesn’t leave much room for more than a clean but sticky finish. (Cask, Bow Bar, Edinburgh

TheCametron (2369) - CZECH REPUBLIC - JAN 26, 2012
Cask at The Bow Bar. Accelerated orange amber with thin, rapidly dissipating white head. Delicious malty character with a spicy hop flavour. Lovely hops. A delicious brew$

Cask at the Botanist, amber with a thin head and a spicy nose, smooth and malty, again with a gently spicy tint. Nice balance.
