Bottle 500ml (AbM)
Amber color, small white head and some lace. Malty aroma has light nutty notes. Light to medium-bodied. Watery front, some spices (clove, ginger + others) in the finish. Light fruity note. Very boring. Not much of Winter Warmer or ESB.

Pohrba tltve borostyn sznben jelenik meg a tli időszakhoz rendelt italunk, habja krmes, csipks karimja ksőbb is megmarad.

Otterdance (164) - Norwich, Norfolk, ENGLAND - MAR 3, 2014
Bottle. Surprisingly this is amber. Bready malts, oatmeal, hint of toffee, orangey spices - more of a autumn ale than a winter warmer.

oh6gdx (26413) - Vasa, FINLAND - MAY 4, 2013
Bottled (from AbM). Amber colour, small bubbly bubbly head, which disappears quite fast. Aroma is caramel, some wood, mild floral, wooden and resiny notes. Flavour is toffee, grass, mild floral, resiny and herbal notes with some mild wooden and floral bitterness in the finish. Not really sure what makes this a winter warmer... but its still a good bitter.

Chelmsford Winter Fest. Clear amber beer. Toffee malt and light hop on the nose. Mild toffee malt base supports fruity hop. Well balanced and well flavoured. Just fruity enough to raise its head above the morass of Bitters.

berkshirejohn (6371) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - MAR 12, 2012
Cask at the Claude du Vall (JDW), Camberley. Amber with a thin white head; grainy aroma; sour grain flavour; with a dry biscuity finish with a touch of ginger. Not very impressive.

DruncanVeasey (8225) - NUNEATON, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - MAR 4, 2012
The Baron, Hinckley, 03/03/12. Almost lager amber with a loose- bubbled, diminishing top. Watery, aniseed-hinting aroma. Tang of seawater without the salt, mellow orange-accented hop, star anise, a retronasal snort of English shrubbery (privet). Malt finish with a cashew and oatmeal linger of some length. Finally bitter. Clean and decent, although I feel neither wintery or warmed.

Cask conditioned handpump Eastgate Northampton. A golden beer with a whitish head and lacing. Mostly malty with some oatmeally flavours. A good length. Theres little by way of aroma, but deent flavours. Its OK. Not a winter warmer but there you go.

Leighton (20582) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 17, 2012
UPDATED: FEB 18, 2012 Cask at The Archibald Simpson, JDW, Aberdeen. Pours clear gold with a sturedy, pure white foam head. Dry, bready malts in the nose. Spicy flavor, medium sweet, some toasty bread, gingerbread, leafy bitters. Light to medium bodied with fine carbonation. Sweet, lightly sticky finish, with Christmas spices, gingerbread, leaves. Lasting leafy, lightly grassy bitterness. OK.
