The Lynd Cross, Horsham 2nd December 2006

So we popped into the local Weatherspoon's on the way past to see what they had to offer.

Smile's Holly Hops (4.8%): Extremely cold, dark beer. Tasted of burnt toffee, chocolate and maybe a hint of cinnamon. Was an interesting flavour once it warmed up. The website says this beer is 5.0% and dead, so maybe it has recently been ressurected for the season.
Cotleigh Red Nose Reinbeer Xmas Ale (5.0%): Despite it's name and appearance this tasted like stout. In spite of it's name, there was not a hint of any Christmassy ingredients. Good beer but unexpectedly like stout.

I have to say the beers here were better than those at the Malt Shovel, although, as usual for Weatherspoon's, far too cold.
