Bottle. Brownish red appearance. Some maltiness and a slight bitterness.Nothing distinctive about to say that its a Christmas beer. wheresthepath (2332) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - MAY 9, 2008
[on draught in the Lyndhurst Arms, Reading] Very bitter, malty and hoppy, but a nice texture and a slightly caramelly finish. duff (5484) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - DEC 9, 2005
Cask. A bit dull I thought. Quite citrusy/lemony and tangy, with a slightly infected edge to the malt flavour, slightly sour. Dissapointing. Mungo (2470) - Southampton, Hampshire, ENGLAND - DEC 6, 2005
