Would have been a pleasant malty aroma were it not for the slight sour hint that’s impinging on it. Dry dusty taste, a decent bready body, but nice herbal undergrowthy hops. Alas, the sourness pokes through there too. Shame, clearly a nice quaff at its core, which has perhaps been spooned. Don’t get me wrong - I didn’t leave a drop, it was only a hint that I was prepared to overlook, as I liked the other aspects.
On cask @ the Cumberland bars a reddish copper beer with faint mixed spice aroma flavour is slight ginger hints of cinnamon fairly thin bodied a bit watery Towey1989 (3433) - Stoke On Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - DEC 27, 2016
Cask at The Green Dragon, Leek (JDW) A clear amber colour with a medium off white head. Aroma of caramel, some bready malts, slight clove and subtle spicy hops. Taste of caramel, bready malts, nutmeg, cinnamon, clove and subtle spicy hops. Medium bodied and soft carbonation. A malty, spicy bitterness in the finish. A Christmas spiced beer which isn’t unappealing but not sessionable. It’ll do. weordie (1468) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - DEC 25, 2016
Pours brown with a thin white head. Aroma is spicy, nutmeg mainly. Lots of nutmeg in the flavour too. Decent. Better than I expected.

Cask handpull at The Crosse Keys Bishopsgate as ’Orkney Clootie Dumpling’, 4.3%. Dark amber orange, translucent and still with a bubbly white head. Aroma is bready, sugary, werthers original. Body is smooth with soft carbonation. Taste is butter mint sweets, those marbled sucky sweets, candy cane, bready, soft bitterness, floral astringency builds over time. Not bad overall.
