è tanto che non scrivo qualcosa di serio qui. questa ale invernale della Fuller’s inizialmente mi lascia perplesso, pare piatta; la verso nella pinta, è proprio carina da guardare. Ramato intenso limpido con piccola testina di schiuma pallida; è troppo fredda e conferma la mia perplessità. Pian piano, scaldandosi nel bicchiere, si fa strada il suo carattere pastoso e ricco; povera solo per un principio di ossidazione che tarpa le ali al luppolo. Per il resto, un bel bere.

LoFi (1711) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - JAN 1, 2011
Copper with a medium-sized white head that leaves some lacing. Aroma: butterscotch, Werther’s Original, toffee, fruit. Taste: caramel, some butter, fruit, grass and grapefruit, medium bitter. The finish is pretty long, and has a grapefruit bitterness. Medium-bodied with some carbonation. Nice and warming winter ale.

Sorry Fuller´s, this beer is not bad at all, but compared with other Xmas beers it´s not on top of the list.

mickut (276) - Espoo, FINLAND - DEC 26, 2010
Bottled. Pours clear, deep amber, with a large, dense tan head and has a fairly good lacing. Taste is mildly bitter with a soft, lingering aftertaste. Palate is a tad thinner than expected, yet full bodied and softly carbonated. Aroma has spices, caramel, roasted malts. Overall a nice balance and warmth.

tkrjukoff (4324) - SWEDEN - DEC 26, 2010
Pours beautiful ruby amber with small tanned head leaving nice lacing. Aroma of syrup, malts, caramel and hops. Nice hoppy mouthfeel. Flavor is spicy, malty, citric and piny hoppy. Fruity perry palate. Finishes acidy fruity turning into long lasting tart hoppy aftertaste.

grungejesus (51) - SWEDEN - DEC 17, 2010
caramel, floral, earthy, butterscotch, amber, clear, frothy, tan foam, medium sweetness, medium bitterness, lightly sour, medium body, creamy, soft carbonation, Doftade mycket gott, dessvärre följde det inte med i smaken. Lovade mer än vad det höll. Men ett mycket gott öl med tydliga brittiska humletoner (chalenger ffa) blandad med caramellmalt.
