50cl bottle from Morrisons, Bracknell. An orangey amber pour with a thin white head; musty grain aroma with a touch of citrus; grainy body with an orangey caramel taste; and a pleasant citrus bitterness to finish. Not very Christmassy, but actually pretty good.

Bottled 22/07/14. A brown beer with a white bubbly head. Bitter oranges in the nose when you have a good sniff. Citrus in the mouth too. Not getting any festive notes. Itís decent although after the first glug I didnít think it was going to be.

Bottle from B&M Canterbury and drunk at home. Clear amber colour lasting off white head. Citrus hop and malty red berry aroma. One of the new phase of Thwaites beers, that are quite tasty. Better than average especially for a Christmas beer and actually fairly likeable. I do like the lemon, lime orange flavour on the finish. Decent.
