COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask; Seasonal - late November & December.
Warming winter ale, this festive special is the perfect balance of roasted malt and premium aroma hops. This tipple would warm even the cold heart of Scrooge.

Premium Bitter? My Aunt Fanny. This is a typical example of an English Old Ale. Dark as a Munchener Dunkel, a slight whiff of caramel, everso gentle roastiness, very muted hops and just a slight hint of alcohol. Perhaps a little sweet for some palates but a pint goes down well at the end of the evening just when youre about to brave the cold. Old Ale isnt so much a style, more a winter accoutriment to go with duffel coats and long johns. Well worth trying but dress up warm...

On cask at Golden Eagle Lincoln - A red body, lacing white head. Nose is caramel and malt, with a sweetness carrying all the way through. Quite a pleasant one, but not so much of a winter warmer as Id hoped for.

EdKing (1831) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 26, 2011
Cask direct from the brewery. Colour is deep reddish brown, hardly any head. Aroma is standard Tring caramel malt character, bit of antique varnished wood, touch of roasted malt. Taste is caramel malt, medium bitter English hops, roasted malt. Probably one of the dullest Christmas beers Ive had. Some hop dryness on the finish.

Cask in 3 Judges. Aroma is minimal but ropasty malts, grassy hop. Taste is similar a bit bland, mainly malty notes.

duff (5484) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - DEC 17, 2005
Cask@The Market Porter, Borough, London. Pretty much a heavier version of the Snowflake. Sweetish, ever so lightly sticky wholemeal maltyness. Leafy hops in the finish. A bit dull, but quite drinkable.
