Bottled. Ruby red colour, mediumsized beige foamy/fluffy head that settles into small cream. Aroma is roasted malts, toasted notes as well as some smoked wet wood and mild earthy notes. Flavour is dark fruits, smoked wet wood, mild liquorice and some slight roasted notes. Also some very mild cinnamon around.

Spiesy (2338) - Sydney, Greater London, AUSTRALIA - JAN 21, 2005
Bottled. Brown Christmas ale, rich smooth malts and very drinkable. I’m not normally turned on by the Christmas branding but this is ok in simple but balanced malt way.

yngwie (16535) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - AUG 26, 2007
Bottle. Clear, ruby body with a decent beige head. Rounded nose with dried fruits, a little roasted nose, raisins, and a touch of port. The flavor has dried fruits, hints of alcohol, hops, roasted malt and raisins. Medium body. Lightly roasted finish with some hops and dried fruits. A nice mild, where the aroma is the most satisfying part of the experience. (070627)

RichardGretton (4654) - Leicestershire, ENGLAND - JAN 25, 2008
Bottle. Reddish black beer with a good head. The aroma is lightly roasted, and the flavour is dry, malty and roasted. Overall a reasonable roasted slightly sweet and dry beer.

chriso (7513) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 26, 2011
UPDATED: AUG 15, 2011 500ml bottle. A few years old but can’t see any ABV. Very deep ruby colour with a lasting beige head. Aroma is quite restrained. Some fruity malt. More fruit on the palate. Some wine-gum notes. Not a lot of bitterness. Maybe a touch sweet on the finish but has a quite full mouthfeel. A quite tasty ruby ale, whether it is actually a mild may be debatable. Has certainly held up quite well despite the age.

Maria (10213) - Thisted, DENMARK - FEB 1, 2008
Mahogany with a nice, golden head. The aroma has notes of roasted malt and light sweetness. The flavour is slightly sweet with loads of roasted malt, caramel and a dry, citrussy finish. 1726

thewolf (12136) - Kolding, DENMARK - JUN 17, 2007
Bottle. Pours a dark red amber with a thin film head. Sweet dark caramel aroma. Flavour is full for the alcohol percentage. It has a definite caramel edge to it and an overall malty sweetness. There are touches of Christmas spices. A nice, low-alcohol alternative to other Christmas brews.
