Hazy golden pour, white head. Some hops and pale malt in the nose. British bitter flavor, nothing terribly exciting here.

gegwilson (3575) - North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - DEC 25, 2016
Bottle as a Christ mas gift from Jenny and John. Cheers! Pours golden with a thin off white head. Mild grassy aroma. The taste is quite pleasantly bitter. Spicy with a little grass and a touch of citrus. Not very Christmassy, but fine.

LazyPyro (782) - Cheltenham, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - DEC 20, 2016
500ml bottle, 4.5% version. Pours a clear golden amber colour with a small white head. Aroma: malty, caramel, toffee, fruit, mild herb/spice note. Taste: sweet malt, caramel, fruit, slight spice/pine, bitter finish. Medium body, soft-average carbonation. Nice enough beer but it doesnt feel like a Winter/Christmas ale.

Rune (11705) - Troms, NORWAY - NOV 11, 2015
500ml bottle kindly shared by djoeye at a session with him and Finn. Pours a stable white head over a near-clear amber-gold body. Clingy lacing. Dusty hops and citrus smell. Taste of grassy hops added by a touch of grapefruit followed by a rounded, fruit bitter ending. Fine bodied, Soft carbonated. Like it (Troms 10.11.2015).

Marduk (6876) - Reval, ESTONIA - JAN 17, 2015
500ml bottle. Clear golden color. Medium size, firm and thick beige head, stays. Looks nice. Bit metallic, herbal hops, mild malty notes in aroma. Very simple aroma. Metallic hops, slightly herbal, malty taste. And again so simple. Nice bitterness. Spicy hops in aftertaste. Everything just right. Nice one!
