3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tasted from the bottle, on 12/01/2013.
Pours of amazing ruby brown, with a healthy foam, which has an ok retention.
Aroma is of candy sugar, spices, mostly cloves and coriander, with faint honey notes in the end.
Taste is overly sweet, honey character dominates, topped with different spices.
Aftertaste is a bit tart.
Worth to try.

330ml with pinnekjøtt@Mother-in-law’s, 28.Dec.2012
Red-brown body with tiny head. Sweet prunes, caramel, dates nose. Sweet, but balanced. A bit better in itself than Mack Juleøl, but Mack was better with pinnekjøtt.

330 ml bottle @ my parents place December 23,2012.
Amber in color.Aroma of malt,caramel and dried fruit.
A bit thin and weak in taste,but i guess 4,5 ABV is the reason.
Ok and descent beer.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle at home. Pours a clear deep red colour with a frothy beige medium head. A bit sweet aroma of caramel, malt, rye bread and some roasted almonds and hay. The flavour is light and has more leather, wood and dried fruit, but still some bready malt. The mouthfeel is light and slick, and has a light bitterness. Decent aroma but a bit light in the mouth, an okay lower alcohol Christmas beer.

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Not the best christmas beer I know. A tiny hint of caramel, the rest isn’t christmassy at all, no spices or malty notes. Quite refreshing, and not thin at all.

Pours dark brown with very little head. Aromas of healthy malt, some caramel, grain. Dry in the mouth with good malty aromas, some caramel, and a hint of licorice. Well made - Aass is definitely one of the best big breweries in Norway

UPDATED: DEC 14, 2013 33 cl can. Superb look of dark red with hints of brown. Has large white head. Pretty neutral nose. Has aromas of caramel but sweetness is not all over other aromas. Carbonation is pretty low, longer after taste would be beneficial for brew. Still a good one.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
0,33 boks hjemme: nydelig rubinrød farge og høyt, tett skum som desverre daler raskt. Frisk, middels fyldig smak og kort, tørr ettersmak. OK til 4,7%, og vil sikkert passe til julemat, men som ølnytelse blir det etter noen slurker for tynt.
