Bottle 500ml. Has a kind of musty aroma. Pours a reddish amber with a bit of froth for a head. Background taste of cod liver oil: foreground taste of ... well, not a lot really. Lable describes it as full bodied - ’er, I think not! Very thin on the palate. Overall, a limp excuse of a brew. weaselkenievil (1608) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - APR 1, 2008
Dark red, the colour of a pissheads blood. Head went in seconds. Citrus hops evident, nice enough but not overly beating my bishop about it. My appreciation for this faded, kind of like pro wrestling as a child. HarryFlashman (469) - Chatham, Kent, ENGLAND - MAR 28, 2008
What a beauty! Quite sweet/toffe/malty, but enough bitter and hops there. This is a real melt in the mouth taste.
Great quality picture of the bottle adjacent too! sm89walt (2070) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - JAN 23, 2008
Bottle. A clear amber bitter with a small, off-white head that endures a fair while before disappearing. This brew’s predominant character is caramel with the occasional fruity and yeasty notes coming through in the flavour and a nutty, barely bitter finish to round it off.

Fynske Øldage 2005, Odense. It’s a beautiful warm amber color and a nice head. The aroma has notes of fruit just like the flavour, that is smooth with clear notes of citrus.

Bottle. Brown-red with slight head. Fruity aroma followed by a sweet malt flavour with some hops in the finish. Unremarkable. scotty (1210) - SCOTLAND - MAR 24, 2007
Bottle from Sainsburys, this was actually ok! Well hopped, with good malt characters. The 4.5% alcohol, while normally sufficient, doesn’t put this in the "winter warmer" bracket for me, I prefer my winter ales with a bit more clout. That said, I did enjoy this.

Rubyish pour with thinning cream suds. Robustly earthy, fruity hopsack aroma. Turkish Delight cloaked in dark chocolate malty-hoppy. One of the better seasonal winter offerings from UK supermarkets. Only really let down by its total headlessness after five swigs. Spiesy (2338) - Sydney, Greater London, AUSTRALIA - MAR 4, 2007
Bottled. Amber with a full beige head. Moderate bitter aroma, clean and unconfused. Distinct ’Green King’ bitter balance. Tastes very similar to the IPA. Slight tickle on the palate. TheGrandMaster (2335) - Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - FEB 27, 2007
Bottle, pours a clear brown with a touch of carbonation and foamy beige head. An interesting aroma, definitely malty, but with citrus fruits and pineapple. Malty flavours at first, and then the fruits comes through on a sharper palate. OK, but wouldn’t put it in the category of a winter warmer.
