Cask at Crossways Inn, West Huntspill. Pours clear golden with an off white bubble. Dry, grassy with a hint of citrus. Dull and boring.

tombyars (1776) - Saltcoats, SCOTLAND - FEB 26, 2012
Tasted this in the Salt Cot, Saltcoats (JDW) in December 2009. Cask, handpump dispense. Clear pale amber in colour with a thin white head. Sweet glycerine fruit present in the aroma. Thin but refreshing mouthfeel and good lacing. Pale malt provides a fruity base with candied fruit much in evidence. Hop resins give a citric fruit note to the bitter hoppy aftertaste. Finish is malty with tart redcurrant fruit. An ok session bitter.

maeib (8749) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - DEC 18, 2009
Cask conditioned handpump Crosse Keys London. A golden beer with a soapy white head. The aroma is icy. Lemony hops and vanilla cream in the mouth. A chewy texture. Average at best.

berkshirejohn (6687) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - DEC 17, 2009
Cask at the Gig House (JDW), Wokingham. Straw in colour with a thin snow white head; the aroma has English hops and some grain; the taste starts with a light citrus but then develops a full hoppy bitterness; leading to a pleasant conclusion with chewy, resinous, slightly sweet hops.

oh6gdx (26485) - Vasa, FINLAND - DEC 30, 2008
Cask. (ABV 4.5%). Slightly hazy pale amber colour with small beige head, that lasts for a while. Aroma is flowery and mild fruity hops along with some wooden hints. Flavour quite much the same with some grassy tones in the finish. Not much Xmas over it, unless it pretends to be Santa’s sweat or something.

downender (8928) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - DEC 14, 2008
Cask-conditioned at the Rising Sun, Frampton Cotterell, S Gloucestershire 14/12/08. ABV per the pump clip was 4.5%. Golden coloured with a short-lived white head. Aroma of apricots, pears and honey with some floral hops. Flavour was sweet, with biscuit malts, strawberries and more pears and some citrus hops in the finish. A bit of a surprise as a Christmas beer but ok.

mjs (7735) - Helsinki, FINLAND - APR 17, 2008
(From old notes, cask at Pullman Bar on 2008-01-04) A bit hazy beer having a rather beautiful head. Very light body, feels a bit like dishwater with hops added in it.
Hops appear clearly both in taste and nose. Also some sweetness in taste. Only connection to Christmas (if this is a Christmas beer in 1st place) is its name.
