Ruby, clear, thin white head; tasted thin; sweet toffeeish malt and some cinnamon spice; below average - I thought the time of year for bad, low strength Christmas beers had long gone.

Cask at the Magpie, dark red-brown with a lasting coarse white head, clean brown-malty nose with an unusual spice tang, body is an odd mix of a lightly hoppy brown bitter with winter spices. Neither fish nor fowl, it doesn’t really work for me. jd543 (428) - SCOTLAND - NOV 4, 2013
