Cask (gravity) @ National Winter Ales Festival 2009, Manchester, England.
Clear medium to dark amber color with a small to average, fizzy, fair lacing, mostly diminishing, off-white to white head. Aroma is moderate malty, roasted, sour malt. Flavor is moderate sweet and light bitter with a average duration. Body is medium, texture is oily, carbonation is soft to flat. [20090123]

This Christmas beer has a truly hilariously funny label - just like the rest of the beers from this Brewer! The brew is hazy, brown with a red hue, and it has a nice head. The aroma has a little caramel and a lot of aroma hops, that gives the flavour fruity and citrussy bitterness, mostly i the finish. It also has notes of roasted malt, caramel and light hints of licorice. It’s a nice ale, but IMO it’s not a Christmas beer.

jbrus (4988) - Delft, NETHERLANDS - JUN 16, 2007
Bottled. Lovely fruity and floral hops aroma. Hazy, orange/amber color, off-white small head, good lace. Maltsweet, pretty bitter, hoppy, orange and tangerine. Soft mouthfeel.

larsga (7656) - Oslo, NORWAY - FEB 6, 2007
Thin white coarse head. Chestnut brown body. Sweet roasty caramel aroma with notes of metal and nuts. Deep caramelly nutty taste with metallic notes. Very reminiscent of Ruddles County, but more powerful in taste, and less bitter. (0.5l bottle.)

harrisoni (19318) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - FEB 5, 2007
Cask gravity at White Cliffs BF 2007. Amber colour with lasting thin beige head. Bit of sulphur on the aroma. Bit of yeast before sweetish malt fruit kicks in. Decent peppery hop on end is dominated by full rich malt fruit. Very drinkable. Even with a hangover at 10.30 in the morning.

Svesse (8786) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - JAN 19, 2007
(Cask at Akkurat, Stockholm, 17 Jan) Amber colour with off-white head. Fruity, spicy nose with notes of orange, clove and orange peel. Fruity, malty taste with orange, chocolate and hints of clove. Surprisingly spicy beer with lots of christmas character. Different, but nice.

johninmelb (1127) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - JAN 1, 2007
Malty nose with a bit of banana. Pours slightly cloudy light amber with a small but persistant head. Flavour is lots of sweet malt with some raisins and figs - v seasonal, and quite nice.

goozen (4145) - Leiden, NETHERLANDS - DEC 23, 2006
Bottle 0,5 Liter : a amber coloured beer with some fruity and some cookie taste.
