This is an average bitter, not very Christmassy and overall a lazy effort. Needs more spice and dried fruit flavours to make this a Christmas beer bjerkeaa (180) - NORWAY - NOV 30, 2013
Colour is ruby to copper. Basically no head. Some fruits, but very little aroma. Taste is slightly malty sweet, with some notes of fruit and dough. I didn’t pick up any christmas spices. Light body with a slightly creamy texture. Sour finish with a bitter aftertaste. Jabic (586) - Plainfield, Vermont, USA - NOV 26, 2013
Ar: Sherry oxydation - some dark fruit, leather, blueberry.
Ap: Clear deep amber - medium off-white head with moderate retention, leaves a cap of big bubbles and a ring of fine foam.
T: Toasted malt, plum, treacle - touch of butterscotch - toffee and dark malt, with some mossy hop flavor - finish is toasted malt and molasses.
P: Medium-ligh body with high carbonation - finish is dry.
O: I like the flavors in this beer - with a bit more sweetness and alcohol, it would be pretty spot-on for an old ale. Oelbas (274) - DENMARK - NOV 17, 2013
Klar, gyldenbrun med et ikke særlig holdbart cremefarvet skum. Duften er præget af maltsødme og lidt blomsteragtigt fra humlen formentlig. Smagen er fyldig og sødlig, men i fin balance pga. humlen, som derudover giver en fin diskret bitterhed, der fortsætter i den ret kortvarige eftersmag

Gylden brun med hvitt skum. Makt karamell. Søt og bare det. Trasig. Medium kullsyre Garrold (5265) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - OCT 28, 2013
This has been staring at me every time I’ve been to fetch a beer from down the cellar, for months now. Well, I’ve done the right thing. I’ve supped it. It’s life has come to its rightful conclusion. Frankly, I think I should have let it carry on staring... GreatLibations (1854) - Last Supper, Arizona, USA - AUG 5, 2013
Amber in color with a modest head. Smells of sweet brown fruitcake. Medium nectar with creamy carbonation. A touch of sweetness with roasted nuts, fruitcake, spices, coffee and plum. Nice bittering on the finish. A bit like sarsaparilla with a kick. Beer5000 (6483) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - MAY 6, 2013
500 ml bottle sampled in 2009. Clear amber body with a small beige head. Aroma is more than less caramel malt alone. Flavor is sweet malt, caramel and bitterness with a hint of fruit. Medium body and short aftertaste. A one-dimensional beer. wlajwl (6806) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - MAR 14, 2013
Aroma is heavy malts and medium sweetness. The flavor is sweetish malts, mild nuttiness and a mix of tart fruit and slight sourness in the finish.
