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. jackafholmes (1024) - - JAN 10, 2016
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. evergreen0199 (3719) - Northwood, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 8, 2016

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. mabuzzer (1024) - Hamilton, SCOTLAND - DEC 24, 2015
500ml bottle. Copper colour, average white head. Caramel and biscuit aroma. Taste is caramel, buscuits and fruit The_Osprey (10146) - 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. blackradioboy (238) - SCOTLAND - NOV 29, 2015
Bottle from Morrisons. Perfectly decent lowish-strength beer. Ok as a sessioner.

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.
