COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Sweet, caramel aroma. Clean, crisp taste, and an almost dry aftertaste. Interesting and complex. Very flavorful with strong malt presence.

berlinoise2go (669) - NORWAY - NOV 28, 2010
Bottle from Ica, Vikersund. Clear, reddish brown colour. Finger-thick offwhite head that reduces quickly. Slightly sweet malty aroma quite well balanced with soft hop bitterness. Finishes too sour. Very average brew that failed to induce xmas emotions.

Zoney (144) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - NOV 28, 2010
Can. Pours clear amber with a off-white head. Typical norwegian christmas beer. Could need a little more of everything, but a nice beer.

trapez (1537) - Hilleroed, DENMARK - NOV 16, 2010
Bottle. Malt aroma. Clear redbrown colour with beige head. Malt and a bit of caramel in flavour with a discrete weak hops finish.

Palme (3603) - Bergen, NORWAY - NOV 11, 2010
0.33l bottle from Meny. Pours a nice dark brown-red body with a quite thin quickly disappearing head. Nose is fresh fruits and burned malts - otherwise quite anonymous. Tastes quite blend. Some malt, thin caramel and week leather hints. Finishes off with a small bitter ending. All in all; Quite boring. (could have sworn the alcohol percentage was 4,7 - not 4,5 but that’s another story)

abstractbeer (239) - NORWAY - NOV 3, 2010
"2010 edition", bottle from local store. Pours a brown brew with an off-white head which quickly disappears. Nose is sweet. Aroma has hints of licorice, dark sweet fruits, malt. Good mouthfeel, but slightly watery. Nice balance, not sickeningly sweet. Pretty good "grocery store juleĝl", but not very exciting.

ClubGonzo (4756) - Bergen, NORWAY - OCT 26, 2010
Bottle from Lerĝy Mat, Bergen. Pours a clear, bronze body with a small, quickly disappearing white head. Aroma is caramel and slightly roasted malts with some faint sour notes. Taste is mildly roasted malts with hints of caramel and grassy hops. Some metallic hints. Well balanced, but ultimately a pretty boring Christmas beer in my opinion.

jikvig (269) - NORWAY - OCT 25, 2010
A brown coulored beer Aroma; Some corn on the nose, maybe some caramell? Flavour; Same as the aromas, with some hops and caramell. Too high carbonation

jtclockwork (11058) - , New Jersey, USA - MAY 11, 2010
Nice amber pour. Nose had slight caramel. Taste is almost pure malt. Too much of it to discern much else. Rated 6/23/02

Kestral (506) - Ċrnes, NORWAY - DEC 19, 2009
Bottles. Actually, several. Pours dark reddish brown with a finger of light tan head that fades fast. Some lace. Aroma is sweet, caramel and roasted notes, some burnt sugar. A metallic bitterness saves it from being overly sweet. Body is quite light, a bit too thin. Carbonation a bit too sparkly. Otherwise, it’s not bad. Tasty, but plain.
