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

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.

Dark amber color with a light moderate head. Toast and toffee malt flavors. malt dominates with a slight spicy hops flavor and finish. Nicely balanced and drinkable.

ClubGonzo (5468) - Bergen, NORWAY - OCT 26, 2010
Bottle from Lerøy 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.

CapFlu (5101) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 2, 2003
(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!

Aurelius (5094) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - DEC 27, 2002
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 I’m not overly impressed.

Bamsen78 (5062) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - NOV 23, 2013
Bottle @ Scooper Tasting in Ulfborg. Pours clear darkish amber with airy off-white head. Dusty aroma with notes of hops and malt. Rough, estery, and sweetish, malty flavour. Sourish overtones. Hoppy notes. Rather unbalanced and not very interesting.

Holmen1 (4887) - Stavanger, NORWAY - NOV 18, 2012
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.

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.
