Draught (Elm Tree, Cambridge) at 4.5%
Christmas spice aroma - mince pies, even to the raisin and mixed peel, cinnamon, clove and all-spice. Perhaps OTT. OK, yes, it is OTT, but it does mellow after a few sips. Sweet. Almost becomes actually mellow. Good non-frightening christmas beer.

3.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Out of most of the Christmas beers i have tried to date this one really shines. Most beers fail to resemble anything of Christmas.
This beer has a nice creamy one finger head. The beer in a nice mid brown colour. The aroma failed to come through at first but after pulling the head back a little the aroma then come through nicely. It is full of Christmas spice flavours like cloves, cinnamon and nutmeg. However i do think the mash temperature could be raised a little to give this beer a better mouth feel as think it is too dry for this style of beer.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Cask at Hamilton Hall, JDW, London. Noted at 4.3% ABV. Pours clear, chestnut brown with a fine, off-white froth. Light toasty malt nose, some leaves and holiday spices. Light to medium sweet flavor with a rather lovely winter spice character, lots of cinnamon and nutmeg, with lasting notes of gingerbread. Light bodied with fine carbonation. Mostly winter spices on the finish, further gingerbread, suggestions of berries and plums. Quite a solid holiday-style bitter.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: DEC 30, 2012 1) Spoons under the library, Birmingham, 23/11/12. Deep bronze with a loose, persistent top. Scented candle aroma. Brazen spice, woodsiness, pepper, souring tamarind-like tones. Red apple peel and digestives. Overdone but pretty festive. Would struggle with a pint.
2) The Felix, 29/12/12. Chestnut with a slick beige foam. Good mulled orange peel, nutmeg and clove nose. Brazen mulled flavour awash with cinnamon clove and nutmeg. Late biscuit. Unsubtle but soft and enjoyable.
