Bottle from LCBO. Pours a clear amber colour with a small head that diddipates quickly. Aromas of cherries, vanilla and spices. Taste matches the aroma with minimal notes of cinnamon. Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. azzurro (574) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 20, 2018
I'm a bit late in my Christmas beer. This one was pick mid-December at LCBO. Nice spiced beer, good, not overwhelmingly special, but good. EKEA (8) - - JAN 9, 2018 does not count
En småkryddig vinteröl som trots sina 7% inte är särskilt påträngande och vass.

Botella. Sabor predominante a caramelo y suave a maltas tostadas, un tanto empalagosa, sin pena ni gloria Davros IX (635) - Hertford, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - JAN 2, 2018
A Christmas Eve treat. A lovely pour with plenty of lacing and a good beery aroma. There was plenty of malt in the taste it was well balanced by the bittering hops. There was no sign of the alcohol and I know that this beer can be very dangerous from when I drank 3 on Christmas Eve a number of years ago and got wasted. This was in no way Christmassy, but it was exceptionally tasty and smooth on the palate.

Flaske: Rødbrun klarøl med et flot skumhoved. Duftener sødlig maltet. Meget sødlig. Smagen er igen domineret af maltsødme med en lillekende engelsk humle. Ikke nok til at balancere den lidt for kraftige sødme der gør den til en engangsforestilling. Theydon_Bois (22092) - Hazlemere, the lower Xhitlerns, Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - DEC 26, 2017

This was a pretty decent English Strong ... a pleasant surprise and for me, not in line with the measly 3.17 average score! zacgillbanks (5765) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - DEC 25, 2017

En rigtig god jule øl
har en flot gylden farve (rav)
holder et godt lysebrunt skum
dufter godt af frugtagtig humle
den er meget let bitter, måske over i det lidt sødlige
smagen er rigtig god
en der skal smages igen
