Taste: Warming. The taste is delayed coming through. It has the vague sense of some old forgotten air. Perhaps having been trapped in an old container. It does have a nice Christmassy edge. That it tastes quite boozy and quite malty.
Appearance: Christmassy label. Threatening to take tradition 'to a whole new level'. Beer's in a metal tankard. But if I had to guess.... Golden.
Would you buy 2? Yes!
Would you buy 4? I probably could. On Christmas Day.
Rating (out of 7): 5***** quite unique. I'm liking it.
