Brown 500ml bottle conditioned brew, best before 09/2010, drank 12/2009. Poured into an 'Old Speckled Hen' vase shaped glass.
The beer was a dark, ruby red colour, no head appeared at all.
The smell was malty, dark chocolate and buscuits, but not a Christmas type aroma.
The front label picture shows a cat in front of an open fire. There is no hint of either in the taste, I don't like cats anyway, would have enjoyed some fire-like flavours or feel to the beer, sadly there was none. It had a malt and mini hop flavour, pleasant but not exciting.
The aftertaste didn't do a great deal to my overall appraisel, the beer lacked a true depth and a Christmas feel to it. The Goldings and Northdown hops do produce a wintery flavour but not enough to save this slightly disappointing brew.
Serving type: on-tap
