Pours a dark amber with a thin off white head. Aroma is malty, fruit cakey. Medium body, mild carbonation. Toast, a little lemon, a tiny hint of spice. Inoffensive.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Smak och doft av stor sötma, choklad, lagom besk, möjligen något för söt och vattning.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cask Conditioned, at The Lamb, Leadenhall, Market, London.
Dark brown, with a rich mahogany shimmer. Sweet aroma, with a sweet and bitter flavour. Full and well rounded on the palate, it certainly does warm the blood. Roasted caramel and Christmas spice become apparent towards the end. This pub is in the CAMRA good pub guide and probably has the best selection of Young’s beers of any Young’s pubs listed in London. Make sure you stop in for 10-15 rates.

Pint pulled at The Kings Arms in Wandsworth (London), a dark ruby brown with a frothy head and an aroma with hints of cherries. A richness in the malty flavour and a nice bitterness through the mouth, with an underlying smoothness.

Draught. While this is lauded as a classic I am not terribly fond of it. There are better ESAs out there.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Cask @ Britannia, Euston Station & The Lamb, Bloomsbury. More body than the bottled version for this pleasent sweet winter warmer that gets a bit cloying in the finish

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cask @ brewery tap: Dark ruby in colour with a lasting tan head. Sweet fruity flavour, suprisingly inoffensive. Not very warming but still quite tasty and fresh. Smooth body. Nice.
