A smooth blend of crystal, chocolate and pale ale malts modestly bittered with East Kent Goldings and First Gold hops, then finished with a late addition of Styrian Goldings to give that classic liquid Christmas pudding flavour.

A head that quickly dissipated and left quite a flat beer. However, this lack of any effervescence complemented a beer that was porter like in its flavour. Lots of toasted malt and some hop bitterness added interest, but I couldn’t escape the thought that it tasted a bit like home brew. The blurb said bottled Christmas pudding but I really didn’t get that stewed fruit flavour. All in all not very good.

Bottle from Local in Carlisle. Appearance - deep ruby to brown with a lovely head. Nose - plums, cherries and biscuits. Marzipan maybe! Taste - more prunes with a biscuit backdrop. Fruit cake generally. Palate - medium to full bodied with a creamy yet tangy texture and a long dry tangy finish. Overall - really good beer.

Cask at the NWAF 2012, Manchester. Murky brown slightly reddish, big frothy beige head. Aroma of cake, malty caramel, some chocolate. Flavour has some fruit, malts and alcohol present, some bitterness in the finish. Not bad.

Clear dark amber beer. Reasonable biscuit coloured head. Dry malty nose. Semi dry palate. Tangy orange, bordering on sour! A little mit of malt, what there is is rich. Hint of apple in the dry finish. Skewed methinks.

maeib (8749) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - APR 25, 2011
Bottled. A hazy dark brown coloured beer with a whitish bubbly head. Malty and woody with a bit of chocolate. Fruity and a touch bready. Not enough flavour for its strength really.
