A delicious chestnut bitter with a full malt character and finished with a delicate balance of Whitbread hops.

Beese (2560) - Watford, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - JUN 27, 2014
Bottle from Beers of Europe (not my selection). Poured a hazy chestnut colour, with a scummy white head. Aroma of dried fruit, wet grass and malt. Cooked fruit flavours, with some cake and straw. Finish was copper, bready malt and peal.

SilverfoX (640) - Norfolk, ENGLAND - JUN 6, 2014
smells just like warm water, burnished gold in colour and the head has gone, tastes amazingly like flat warm cola. the mouth feel is awful, to be honest i think it may well go down the sink.

maeib (8750) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - APR 13, 2014
Bottled 04/04/14. A dark brown coloured beer with a white head. Very fruity and malty. Grainy and chewy. A bit of jam. Seems quite hoppy really but ends up being too fruity chewy.

Philym (1003) - St Neots, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - JAN 10, 2014
Appearance: Clear ruby with cm thick ivory head. Aroma: Chocolate malt, bread/biscuit, slight fruitiness and a note of plum. Taste: Low/medium bitter and sourness, low sweetness and a slight saltiness. Palate: Smooth thick texture, light body, low/average carbonation, abrupt dry nutty, malty finish. Comments: Tasty but not outstanding. Not sure where Christmas comes into play other than the name.

s_hartshorne (2170) - wakefield, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - DEC 13, 2013
Bottle bargain booze. No head at all a dark chestnut coulou taste is liquiriche and malts with lingering bitter aftertaste. Very low carbonation medium body. Not bad tatse but nothing else going for it.

AshtonMcCobb (3679) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - DEC 11, 2013
50cl bottle from Appellation Wines. Appearance - opaque black with just a chink of red around the edges. The head dissipates a bit too quickly. Nose - dark chocolate and liquorice Taste - more of the same, with malt bitterness in the finish. Palate - medium bodied with a big tangy texture and a finish which is dominated by malt astringency. Overall - this seems to have a lot of poor marks. I think itís quite decent, of course these days this style of beer is not in vogue.

allmyvinyl (5784) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - DEC 5, 2013
500mnl bottle from Appellation Wines. Pours chestnut brown with little to no head. Aromas, such as they are, are light red fruit and caramel. Light spice on the taste. Finishes unexcitingly. I said when I bought this, "Itíll probably be terrible, but letís give it a go". Not terrible, but not great.
