Cask @ Bishop Arms Malmö, Savoy. Brun öl med dragning åt rött. I stort sett utan skum. Doft av mörkt bröd, russin och lätta rostade toner. Samma återkommer i smaken tillsammans med en lätt kryddighet.. Trevlig julkänsla.

På fat @ Bishops Arms Savoy, Malmö. Mörkröd öl med ett nästintill icke-existerande skum. En del julkryddor, samt apelsinmarmelad och kola i aromen. Julkryddor, enbär och apelsin i smaken. Viss beska i eftersmaken.

UPDATED: MAR 4, 2013 Cask at The Bishops Arms (Gustav Adolfs Torg) Malmo. Deep reddish brown pour with a thin bubbly fast dispersing head. A dry yeasty aroma leading into a fruity, medium bitter taste. You could almost chew the fruit. This is a really heart warming flavourful ale and an ideal example of what a Christmas beer should be!

[email protected] (old backlog). Reddish brown colour with a mediumsized beige foamy head that leaves some lace. Aroma is bready and caramel malty with some slight toasted and coffeeish notes along with some ripe fruits, raisins and plum. Flavour is rather similar with some slight spicyness (yeastyness?) to it as well. would probably suit the Xmas food table rather well.
