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

Thanks to Akevitt for sharing this one. Dark copper color with a thin head. Slightly grainy aroma. The taste manages to be both sweet and bitter grains. A very small pinch of cinnamon.

Yes Virginia, Christmas does come in a can, especially a 12-oz can when shared by akevitt. Pours a clear dark amber brew with a creamy off-white head that has some spotty lacing and a slow dissipation. Aroma of slightly roasted caramel malt, some flowery hops, some slight raisin, and wheat bread. Taste is medium bodied, light carbonation with a slight metallic texture with flavors of caramel malt and some mild bitterness. Finish is slight metallic with a mild bitter and caramel aftertaste.

RSRIZZO (1958) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - DEC 2, 2007
Had this beer on 6/1/2000. Aroma is very faint with a hint of roasted malt. Color is a bright clear amber with light carbonation and head. Taste is sharp, crisp and bitter. Starting with light medium body that goes down with a slightly sharp malt feel. Finish is a lightly sweet malt flavor backed by a very mild bitterness. Its not what I think of when I think of a Christmas Beer.

The motto "xmas lasts till Easter" came to my mind when I picked up the 330ml bottle at Fenaknoken in Oslo (BB:14.07.07). Mahogany coloured body, off-white head and hints of laceworks. Aroma has got some roasted notes. Vague, dark malty flavour added a light touch of caramel sweetness. Rather thin mouthfeel. Didn’t make me think of Yuletide (17.03.2007).
