Part of my 2013 backlog, and tasted at the Victoria Lincoln. Amber colour with almost no head. Aroma has the berries fruit youd expect. The taste does to, but not overpowering.

Cask at the Ericht Ale House, Blairgowrie. Clear reddish brown with a decent white head. Aromas of artificial berry, not much else. Tastes a bit thin, not enough maltiness. More berries. Thin finish. OK.

Cask conditioned handpump Cherry Reds Birmingham 09/12/13. A reddy brown coloured beer with a whitish head and lace. Berry fruity throughout. Too sweet and a bit artificial. Uneventful and certainly not a Winter warmer.

Cask at Leyton Technical. A very subtle seasonal ale that really hits the spot without going overboard on any sort of gimmick flavour. Looks and pours like an an amber ale, with thin head. Unassuming aroma, with a hint of orange and cranberry (this could be winter berries - I genuinely couldn’t tell you what they smell like). Lovely, gentle palate which is a great balance of malty savoury then fruity sweet,but never too much. Palate lasts just the right amount of time, and the more you try, the more you taste. Rare to find an untraditional seasonal that isn’t a gimmick. To be applauded.

Cask at The Anchor, Birmingham. Poured a crystal clear dark amber with a thin broken white head and some broken lace. The aroma is malt and red berry fruit. The flavour is light bitter light sweet with a watery fruit hop palate and a short bitter finish. Perfect for Christmas.

Quite awful aroma and aftertaste. It is rare that I have to mix it with a brown ale to make it palatable.

mr_h (6014) - Ayr, SCOTLAND - NOV 18, 2013
Cask by handpump at State Bar, Glasgow - clear amber brown, minimal head, fruity malty aroma, no lacing, toffee, berry fruits, sweet, oily texture

Like drinking a very upmarket chocolate bar. Nice and chocolatey with really strong delicious berry fruits. I thought this was great but others may find the fruit too much. Not sure this is a session beer, could end up being too cloying.

Beersiveknown (5303) - NORTHERN IRELAND - DEC 19, 2012
Light chestnut, cranberry nose, lots of berry juice, slight malt astringency. Not good beer.

ManVsBeer (10973) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - DEC 17, 2012
Reddish ale which lacks a head. Has a slight berry sweetness in both aroma and taste.
