Cask; Seasonal - December.
As the snow piles up against the door and the wind whistles over the Santa sized Chimney of the pub, it’s time to find a beer of noble heart and passionate tradition.
Chestnut red in colour the extravagance of this beer begins before you even raise it to your expectant lips, like the humble figgy pudding or perfect Christmas cake the explosion of flavour will transfix the tongue, warm citrus and candid peel flavours mix with the dryness of a drawn out fermentation. New season hops reach for the sweetness of the purest English malt to give the balance only a genuine drunk can achieve. As our White Horse slips on his jolly red nose for added seasonal cheer enjoy beer that brings back sweet memories of Christmas past!

Cask at moon under water Watford jdw. Not much aroma at all really, some berry and alcohol maybe. Clear copper colour with a stodgy grey head. Palate is watery and zero carbonation. Flavour is raisin and berry with dirty bitterness at the back of the throat.

Cask, Lord Keeper of the Great Seal, Oadby. Copper with a cream foam. Aromas are caramel and toffee sponge cake with lemon rind. Nice amount of Christmas spices with raisins and traces of banana bread yeastiness. Flavours are sweet plummy fruit with soft citrus. Dry and spicy on the finish. A nice malty, comforting winter brew.

berkshirejohn (5395) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - NOV 24, 2012
Cask at the Bear (JDW), Maidenhead. Reddish chestnut with a loose cream head; malty caramel aroma; sharply bitter to start, then mellowing - the body has sweet caramel malts but is rather thin; the bitter finish is sustained.

Pretty good. This has got that caramel, Christmas pud taste, but isnt too sweet unlike some of the Christmas offerings. Quite malty and some hops. A touch flat, but enjoyable.
