COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Falling from the sky like bombs of flavour come the Reindeer Droppings! Each one is sweet like California raisins, but bitter and pungent like a freshly peeled grapefruit, lip-smackingly tasty... then "pow!" it’s gone. How did that happen?

Clear, light amber pour with a small, white head. The aroma has mild citrus with some faint caramel. It has a light body with average carbonation. The taste is mildly bittersweet with a quick finish.

Bottle as shown. Pours a clear gold with a small frothy off white head that lasts. The aroma is strong pine and grapefruit. Medium mouthfeel with light resin, grapefruit and nice light bitter finish. Good

500ml bottle into a shaker glass; served cold. Aroma: This beer has hints of vanilla, citrus, grass, and pastries. This beer’s aroma is moderately intense. Appearance: This beer has a clear, amber body with no head. This beer leaves behind light to no lacing. Taste: This beer is mildly flavored; it has grassy hop notes as well as sweet, bread-y malts. Palate: This beer is has a light+ body, and a moderately long finish that ends on light bitterness. Overall: A decent holiday beer, but if it were year-round, I doubt that I’d buy it regularly. The flavors are decent, but nothing especially stands out about this beer.

Bottled. Bought at a beer specialty store here in Bratislava. One word: great! definitely a great English amber ale. Very bitter, hoppy and a tone of dark chocolate in the finish, which is the most dominant part, where all the characteristics of this ale are unleashed. The aroma is quite low, does not promise anything, there is some malt and the raisins, but that is all. The color however is beautiful! Copper brown and clear. The hoppy aftertaste last quite long on the mouth. Overall an excellent brew in my opinion in its price and quality category.

J_man (1022) - Tustin, California, USA - DEC 4, 2013
Clean, lager-like malt aroma. Crystal clear medium yellow with a white head. The lager quality carries into the taste and then finally gets a little more earthy with a good English ale taste. Some fairly strong Noble hop bitterness kicks in and balances out the light caramel sweetness really well. Finishes dry, bitter and sweet all at the same time. This gets better with every sip and as it warms. Good English ale with a nice hoppy bite.

bb (9789) - Alamo, California, USA - NOV 24, 2013
Bottle. Amber beer with a dark cream head. Slightly skunky aroma with light malt. Malt and light woodsy flavor. Medium bodied. Malt and light caramel lingers with light woodsiness.

3.1
Everettm (81) - Bristol, Somerset, ENGLAND - SEP 29, 2013
Mild carbonation, hay colour with a small amount of head. Light delicate nose of grain, some banana, lemon and grassy hops. Biscuit and grain dominance with highlights of grapefruit, lemon and hints of banana. Finish of malt sweetness offset by a light musky hop bitterness, somewhat dry.
