Gary (1373) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 12, 2014
Cask in Chatham dusty yeast aroma. Toffee and fruit cake palate. I m not a great fan of wychwood beers but the merits of cask beer make this decent. I bet this suck from a bottle

jjsint (742) - Bedford, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - JAN 2, 2014
Cask @ Bankers Draft (JDW). pours a thin copper brown. Little head & carbonation. Smells of clove, cinnamon & mulberries. I was afraid from the aroma that it would be like drinking liquified potpourri - I was wrong. Sweet but balanced and very pleasant. One of the better festive ales Iíve had - on 2 January! Bah Humbug indeed!

jmgreenuk (4258) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - JAN 1, 2014
Cask at The Anchor, Birmingham. Poured a clear medium amber with a thin white heat and lots of broken lace. The aroma is weak malt, yeast and light citrus. The flavour is medium bitter with a fruity malt spicy aniseed palate. Medium bodied with soft carbonation. Really very drinkable and perfect for a session which is something I rarely do these days because of all this damn ticking ;-)

wheresthepath (1532) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - DEC 19, 2013
Cask at the Hobgoblin, Reading. Deep amber with a thin white head. A fruity beer dominated by sweet cinnamon. In fact, it tastes like Hobgoblin with cinnamon syrup added. There is an earthy bitterness in the finish, but not enough to balance the sticky sweetness. Oh well, at least itís that rare thing- a UK Christmad ale that actually tastes Christmassy!

niquillis (812) - Stoke on Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - DEC 8, 2013
On cask at Agricultural Hotel, Penrith. Pours rub red with off white head. Light spice. Cherry, malt. Nice balance for a decent Xmas ale.

imdownthepub (10141) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - MAR 29, 2013
Cask conditioned at a Wetherspoons. Brown with slight head. I know itís cold out there, but itís a little out of season for this to appear. There was a tart fruity note with some fungal type notes, sourish cherry with a plum background. Not good.

RichTheVillan (2752) - West Midlands, ENGLAND - DEC 26, 2012
Cask at JDW Arthur Robertson; clear brown pour, sweet malt aroma, bitter taste with a hint of nutmeg. Quite good one of the better Xmas ales Iíve had.

UPDATED: DEC 16, 2013 Cask conditioned handpump Eastgate Northampton 20/12/12 A brown beer with an off-white head and lace. Sweet cakey and spicy. Christmas notes but too sweet and syrupy. A bit medicinal in places too. Score 2.7

Unremarkable Christmas ale, not really up to the usual Wychwood standards. Rather flat, light Brown colour, bot much head.
