Old Spice does not come in a Red Can, but it does smell nice. It is the Christmas Beer from Fernandes Brewery, produced for the last 3 years in small, but nonetheless, highly sought after quantities. I am told by the Brewer, it is loosely based on the regularly produced beer, Double-Six, but that it has additional "Spices" and even Rum, plus other 'secret' ingredients, that may alter slightly year-on-year. Boy, this is one hell of a Christmas Beer. It is usually made several months before the festive season, and stronger than 6% ABV by the time it is sold I suspect (just don't tell the Tax Man). Drink it by the real fire in the Brewery Tap and defrost as it fights the English Winter cold better than Spartcus fought the Romans. It warms as it traverses the throat, and it kicks the heart when it gets there. It's for sipping and not supping - so you may struggle to drink more than say, a couple of half-pints of this though. I am sure Father Christmas has this in his Hip-Flask when he leaves home.
