4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
A wonderful Christmas Ale. Lovely carbonation. Lingering head. Lovely spices, in both the aroma and flavour. Worth a second bottle.
330mL bottle from Beer Love online. Bottled 29/11/16
Dense pale copper body, small off-white head.
Bread malts upfront - dark brown sugar, nutmeg spice & ginger; doesnt give away too much.
Thick body, good weight, warming, luscious.
More spice on the palate - nutmeg, cinnamon, clove, ginger, glace orange to accompany rich dark brown sugar & bready/pudding sort of notes. Touch of bitterness, warm finish.
Nice winter warmer. CurlyJoe (244) - AUSTRALIA - DEC 23, 2016
UPDATED: JAN 12, 2017 Dark orange/yellow with some white head. Very bitter at the start bit mellows with Christmas fruits, like raisins and cherry. Maris (1516) - Canberra, AUSTRALIA - DEC 11, 2016
From a 330ml bottle on 11/12/2016. Pours a light amber with a small head. The nose is light spice. Taste wise there’s a bit of Christmas cake, Belgian yeast and a bit of spice. Medium bodied with average carbonation. Not bad but fails to inspire any real enthusiasm. Dervock (1347) - AUSTRALIA - FEB 13, 2016
Tap Bitter Phew - board said 8.8%, cloudy orange pour. aroma sweet malt, caramel and fruit. Taste was sweet and boozy up front with a long lingering finish. Palate was smooth and creamy. KeefOz (1842) - Tarragindi, AUSTRALIA - DEC 20, 2015
Poured a translucent murky orangey amber with 5mm of off-white foam that diminished slowly to a collar that laced OK. carbonation moderate with fine to medium bubbles. Aroma strongly of mixed spices and possible pepper with hints of caramel; no obvious alcohol. Taste of mixed spices with hints of sweet malt; alcohol well hidden. Medium body. A nice warming winter ale.
