Don’t get the Christmas aspect to this at all clean with small head soapy citrus sherbet lemon ok but more of a spring summer ale.

Cask at prem inn, norwich. Light amber, small scummy white head. Aroma is ginger and tangy orange, citrus. Taste is tangy, a little bit sour strangly and bitter finish. Quite thin with almost prickly carb. Weird one.

Bottle - clear thin looking amber, small white head. Sweet hoppy aroma, little carbonation. Fairly smooth on tongue but initial ting on back of mouth - but fades as left. Fruity thin flavour, slight bitter finish.

Pint draught (cask) @ some pub in London. Quite typical amber bitter except this is a bit more smooth than most. I expected something connected with Christmas. Spices maybe, but no, there are not any.

500ml bottle. Copper colour, average white head. Caramel and biscuit aroma. Taste is caramel, buscuits and fruit

The_Osprey (9126) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 23, 2015
500ml bottle at home in Blaendulais, 4%, BB Nov 2016. As ’Thwaites Yule Love It!’. Complete with the obligatory cartoon reindeer, just to add some class to proceedings. Amber orange, clear, lightly sparkling, thin off-white head leaves droopy lacing. Aroma is quite soft with caramel malts, light citrus, a little lavender maybe. Body is medium, quite foamy, soft carbonation. Taste is balanced between malts and hops, a soft chalky powdery vibe, more lavender, soft peppery bitterness. Biscuity linger with some hop sack. I’d be interested to know what hops are used. Pretty solid for a cheap supermarket option I think. Very drinkable.

Bottle from Morrisons. Perfectly decent lowish-strength beer. Ok as a sessioner. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

500ml bottle from Tesco - Clear amber body thick white head. Nose has a berry sweetness, with a citrus hoppiness too. Taste is clean and lemony, lime and fresh. Very unchristmassy.
