Two hand-pulled pints in my local Wetherspoons on 7th Dec 2012.

Found this strange tasting so had a second pint to ensure I'd got it everything correct in my notes.

Amber body with a creamy textured off-white head: the head produced some good lacing on both pints, so the beer was in fine condition.

The nose and taste went something like this: baked Mince Pies laced with cinnamon and cloves, now crumble a ginger nut biscuit over the top and re-bake the Pies. Once you've taken the over cooked Mince Pies out the oven add more cinnamon and a hop leaf or two before soaking in a bucket of alcohol. Put into casks and send to Wetherspoons.

PS: I liked both pints!

Dark copper in color. Spicy aroma -cinnamon, cloves. Taste is slightly sweet, with those spice flavors. Medium bodied.

500ml Bottle from Tesco (£1.50):
Caramel amber with a thumb sized, foamy head that is a slightly off-white colour and looks quite thick with good retention and little initial movement.

Malty with some biscuit and earthy hints coming through along with some caramel and background spice. There is some bitterness too and touches of fruit and sugar as well.

Earthy malts and caramel to begin with, followed up by plenty of bitterness and a few light fruits not nothing too noticeable on the front. There is some grain and a touch of spice.

Light-medium bodied, fairly smooth with only a touch of grain but it was a little bland, almost watery in places which was a bit of a disappointment. Carbonation falls somewhere around medium and the finish is a dry, bitter one.

Not a bad beer really and a bit of an improvement on some of the Christmas beers I picked up last year but sadly this one still wasn't really all the memorable in its own right. Just an average beer.
