1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 5/20
Crystal clear, dark copper body with a long-lived off-white head. Malty, sweet and moderate aroma of wort and malt extract. Moderate flavour of malt extract, wort and caramel. Moderate sweet taste with a finish that actually has a touch of bitterness! Better than most non-alcoholic lighter beers, but I’d prefer a Coke.
[33 cl bottle, enjoyed 9 months before BB date, from Meny Kringsjå, Oslo]

1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
33cl bottle. Pours deep amber to chestnut coloured with a tanned head. Fairly mild aroma of wort and malt with notes of dark bread and hints of herbs. Sweet and grainy with a watery wort flavour and a light bitterness. Slightly better than the similar Munkholm, but again I would prefer ’vørterøl’ to this watery and pretty flavourless stuff.

2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
33 cl brown bottle b@Eurospar Tomasjord Tromsø.
Deep red-brown body with a moderate light beige head, some lacings inside the mug.
Rich scents of malts, dark bread crust, spices, caramel, butter.
Tastes sweet malts, bread, hops, grains, a little honey hint, a bit as wort-beer.
Not so good ending, with sourish malts. Overall alright, but didn’t meet expectations made by scents.

1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Ok low alcohol beer, but not when you take into consideration that it’s supposed to be christmas beer. Honey and caramel, and overall malty domination.
