2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Lets start by saying this bottle is probably a few years old. I wonder if it is still made. Poured a murky brown color. Aroma of lightly skunked malt at the start. As the beer warmed this became replaced by creamy chocolate drink (almost like yahoo), very light spice, and aged malt. Flavor is thin and old like a watered down cold hot cocoa. There is a touch of spice on the finish. This beer was definitely on its last legs.

(5oo ml Can) Deep copper body and a medium, almond head. Nose of toffee. Flavours of sweet malt, pine needles, cinnamon and tinny. A thin, dry malted finish!

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
A rare beer from Akevitt. Moderate sweet malt and some spice. Clearly a lager, but I wasnt sure it was a Vienna. Dry finish, but there is some sweetness in the flavor. Not bad for cheap beer from a can.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Super malty flavor and aroma. Grainy tasting after you get through the malt shock, then sort of molasses-y and woody. Grainy palate. Decent, but Im not overly impressed.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a ruddy yellow-orange, with some nice white head. Effervescent and moderately clear, has a light fruit aroma, apples, pears, brown sugar and malt. Wonderful clear and crisp flavor. Dosent water down, improves as it warms and has a nice soft malt flavor with lots of grains. Mildly spiced, no alcohol present. Probably one of the best light beers I've had. Subtle, well balanced, no earth shattering flavors, but hey it's a low gravity, low abv vienna.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Clear, brown-red with a nice and fruity alcoholic nose. Sweet, but kind of light malts. Complex fruity aromas as well. Frothy texture with a tingly, spikey carbonation. Warming in the throat, fulfilling, slightly bitter. Very dry, puckering finish.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Ruby red pour with big pink head. Malty and sweet dried fruit tastes throughout. Could use a bit more hops though.
