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.

Bottle. Has a casky look. The head is small and quickly fades into a mist on the surface and a porous ring around the glass. The colour is dark copper. Aroma: very fruity with some butterscotch and perhaps licorice. Taste: a soft maltiness, oranges, dried fruits, hard candies, and a medium bitterness (grapefruit and grass) that grows towards the end. The mouthfeel also feels a bit like hand pumped: smooth with a slight carbonation, a bit flat. A nice English style winter warmer.

Backlog. 2011-version. On tap at Green Lion Inn. Im not really a fan of the winter-seasonals and this was just one in the line of un-impressing winter-seasonal.
