Cask Handpump at Cains Brewery Tap, Liverpool 17/12/2010 (As Christmas Ale ABV 4.7%) Big fruit aroma. White head. Golden bronze coloured and hoppy with some alcohol present. Fruity banana flavour with a bitter malt finish. Also sampled in the midst of the heaviest snowstorm I’ve ever seen in Liverpool city centre!

Tried this in the ’Brewery Tap’ when visiting Liverpool. Well worth it. Took a while to get used to the ’mulled wine’ taste but soon found I loved it. A lovely warming beer. And it started to snow!

Fin (12527) - Attenkirchen, GERMANY - MAY 9, 2006
Picked this in bottle a couple of times now Dark amber in colour bit fruity and spicey with a nice sweetness, very full of flavour and one of the better beers that I’ve had from Cains.

nigos (631) - Ipswich, Suffolk, ENGLAND - JAN 7, 2004
Dark amber hue with a decent white head. Flowery grassy hoppy nose with a spicey twist. Nutty spicey taste with earthy tones. A decent Christmas ale.

RobBestwick (1116) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - JAN 4, 2004
fruity and fig like malty aroma, bronze hue with a small head, rich fruit cake flavour, spicey notes with a firm body, bitter and fruity finish, a good christmas ale.

imdownthepub (18064) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - AUG 30, 2003
Bottled, Pasteurised. Copper coloured beer with thin head. Spicey big flavoured beer. Apple, raisins and sultanas to the fore. Sweet with little finish

Gr0ve (2176) - Oslo, NORWAY - JAN 25, 2003
UPDATED: AUG 29, 2003 A well-made beer. Nice mouthfeel. Sweetness with hints of cinnamon. Excellent christmas beer.

3.8
Joeh (2049) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - DEC 6, 2002
Huge, spicy aroma of hops and fruit. Copper colour, medium carbonation and only a slight head. Very tasty, fruit, hops and spice - very slightly watery despite the 5% abv. Christmas ales probably should be a little less easy drinking and more full bodied - but good none the less.

3.7
Bov (14987) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - JAN 9, 2001
strange red-amber colour, few foam, artichoke aroma, fruity and spicy with a subtile bitterness
