Beer5000 (5062) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JAN 28, 2009
330 ml bottle (2008 4,7%). Clear, dark amber body with a big, foamy beige head. Aroma is light roasted malt and caramel. Flavor is sweet, slightly roasted malt, caramel and a balanced bitterness. Quite light and a short aftertaste, but definitively tasty and nice balanced. This is the best Norwegian wannabe Christmas beer.

12.12.2008, 0,33l Bottle. Dark brown colour with light brown head. There is a fizzeling carbonation-sound. The aroma is malty with a little sharp taste of carbonation. Not as sweet as i expected. There is also some bitterness. I also think it tastes more like burned than roasted.

espenra (926) - Kurland, NORWAY - DEC 5, 2008
33cl bottle at Frognerseteren restaurant. It poured a red-brown colour with a small beige head that settled down fast in the glass. The aroma is sweet, tempting and smells of malts, yeast and raisins. The flavour is bittersweet and tastes of coffee and roasted malts. It has a short aftertaste.It is a decent christmas beer, but nothing outstanding.

sthlm (1252) - Minnesota, USA - MAY 3, 2008
[Can, thanks Akevitt] Pours clear, slightly reddish-brown with a cream head. Aroma is malty and quite sweet with a lot of caramel. The taste is really weak with a somewhat unpleasant grainy taste and something fruity--like green grape. Thin, but smooth with a fairly long finish. The aroma was ok, but the taste just ruined this beer.
