From the 26 fl. oz. bottle leftover from last Winter I expect. I got it as a knockdown on the clearance rack on June 28, 2014.

The pour is lovely and attractive with its rich amber brown color and fine clarity leading up to a modest off-white head.

The aroma is very British with an abundance of caramel and toffee malts, molasses perhaps, roastiness, and a low to nearly indistinguishable hop note.

Medium body.

The taste has the same malt sweetness as the aroma suggests but with a touch of cardboard in the mix. That could be due to the age of this beer, which was probably not meant to be had 7-8 months after it came out.

500 ml brown bottle. Pours with a mostly short-lived, bubbly head. Lovely deep red-amber color.

Caramel and medium roast malts in the nose, with cinnamon and a subtle hint of coffee.

Flavor: largely follows nose, with cinnamon flavored caramel and medium roasted malts.

Feel: seems clearly too thin.

O: OK for the holidays.

pours out of the half litre bottle a clear garnet colour with a short lived light tan head. little retention and lace. the aroma reminds me a bit of red wine...quite fruity with hints of x-mas spice. the taste profile is mish mash of toasted maltiness with fruity undertones and accents of nutmeg and cinnamon spice. it's a little flat on the tongue, which reduces the overall enjoyment of the various flavours. there is some residual bitterness from the hopping, which gives it a bit of balance and character. the mouthfeel is on the light side as is the overall body, which gives it a touch of drinkability. this concoction is a bit mundane for a spiced x-mas ale, but pleasant enough i suppose.

overall, the first thing that is evident is that this bottle is past its prime and i'm sure a brewery fresh pint would be rather festive to drink. that being said, i'm drinking this on March 31st during a raging blizzard when Spring is supposed to be springing and to that i say....BAH HUMBUG!!!!

I saw this dusting on the back of the shelf at the liquor store, the addition of cinnamon looks intriguing. Luckily it is an unusually cold February day in Oz, so great time for the xmas beer.

A - slightly hazy, copper colour. Pours a nice 1cm beige head, then lingers to a good sized lacing

s - not much in the way of smell. Sweet, dried fruit and bread , almost like an xmas pudding. Whiff of cinnamon

t - a bit flat here, sweet malts are there, some fruity (orange) and spicy notes but the cinnamon is subdued. A short sour aftertaste. A bit like flat chinotto.

A - slightly thin and watery feel, metallic finish, low carbonation

Average, a bit more body, higher ABV content, and a dash more cinnamon may have made it more interesting. Or maybe I don't have the xmas spirit anymore!
