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.

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.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 5/20
Bottle. Pours a mellow bronze body with a relatively large, creamy off-white top, which actually sticks around for a while. Nose is wort and caramel malts, with hints of cereal. Taste is wort, caramel malts and hints of metal and dusty hops. OK drinkability. Not really good, but not really bad either - for a beer of this format. (When, come to think of it, means its actually quite good, all in all.)

1.3 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
330ml bottle from Centra Colosseum Park, Oslo. Clear, light amber body. Near-white foamy head with a solid stand. Smell of malts and vegetables. Wort-like flavour with a sour malty ending. More or less as expected (hotel room, 17.11.2009).

1.4 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
330 ml brown bottle. The beer looks impressive - amber colour, with a huge and creamy long lasting head. Sickly sweet aroma of over-boiled vegetables and unfermented wort, typical n/a beer. The flavour is actually better than many other n/a beers (like the Munkholm range) - there is a certain maltiness with some caramel, and tolerable hops in the finish. If you MUST have a n/a beer, this one is at least (nearly) drinkable, if you can stand the smell.
