fiulijn (21022) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 15, 2009
Cask conditioned at J.D. Wetherspoon - Penderel’s Oak, London
Hazy light amber color; frothy head. Sweetish toffee flavor, with a lightly fruity hopping. Good.

imdownthepub (15137) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - NOV 25, 2012
Cask conditioned at a Wetherspoons. Brown to amber with white head. Smooth, malty beer, bready but quite bitter, dry, palate filling although a touch tinny. Ok without getting exciting.

ManVsBeer (10888) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - DEC 27, 2012
Healthy looking golden ale with a thin creamy head, but also a thin bodied texture that isn’t so pleasant. Its understated aroma is of wild fruit, little of this is found in its taste.

downender (8774) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - SEP 23, 2007
Cask-conditioned at the Knights Templar JDW, Bristol, December 2006. Cooper coloured with a slight off-white head. Red fruit taste and aroma followed by a decent bitter finish. Good.

maeib (8751) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - DEC 23, 2006
UPDATED: DEC 4, 2012 Cask conditioned - handpump - JDW Northampton. An amber coloured beer with a red hue. The aroma is fruity and malty. The taste is nicely hoppy bitter with some soapy twang. Nice fruits also. A decent beer. Score 3.4
Subsequent rating scored 3.5 Score unaltered

The_Osprey (8722) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 23, 2016
Cask handpull at Hamilton Hall London as ’Mordue Tinsel Toon’. Dark amber orange, translucent and still with a dense foamy white head, leaving thick lacing. Aroma is a touch farty, potato peel. Body is smooth, rounded, soft carbonation. Taste is sugary, malted milk biscuits, salted rusks, lightly floral, soft bitterness with a salty-sweet linger. Tastes better than it smells! (3.1)

DruncanVeasey (8260) - Nr NUNEATON, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - DEC 17, 2012
Cask handpull, The Felix (JDW), Nuneaton, 15/12/12. Creamy-topped dark copper. Light pear and orange aroma; some grass. Decent orange tang, creamy malt, vanilla linger with walnut hints.

chriso (7586) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 16, 2006
Cask (handpump) at Lord Moon of the Mall (JDW), Whitehall. A fairly standard copper coloured best bitter. Not much aroma. Clean and smooth on the palate with touches of earthy hop. Perfectly acceptable, but not very Christmassy.

SaintMatty (7482) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - JAN 14, 2009
Cask (JDW pub, London) - Amber/copper coloured. Fruity and hoppy aroma. Fruity taste with a hoppy element featuring grapefruit, raisins and caramel.
