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

Let’s 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.

Clear red brown color with a average, frothy to creamy, good lacing, mostly lasting, beige head. Aroma is moderate malty, roasted, dark bread, dusty, brown sugar. Flavor is moderate sweet with a average to long duration. Body is light to medium, texture is oily to watery, carbonation is soft. (130508)

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.

Holmen1 (2340) - 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.

Bottle at home. Pours a clear deep red colour with a frothy beige medium head. A bit sweet aroma of caramel, malt, rye bread and some roasted almonds and hay. The flavour is light and has more leather, wood and dried fruit, but still some bready malt. The mouthfeel is light and slick, and has a light bitterness. Decent aroma but a bit light in the mouth, an okay lower alcohol Christmas beer.

330 ml bottle @ my parents place December 23,2012. Amber in color.Aroma of malt,caramel and dried fruit. A bit thin and weak in taste,but i guess 4,5 ABV is the reason. Ok and descent beer.

Very light aroma, sweetness and not much else discernible. Sweet flavor, hints of oak and malt, but pretty light for a winter. Not bad, but nothing special.

Gr0ve (2132) - Oslo, NORWAY - JAN 7, 2006
330 ml bottle. Clear dark brown. Well carbonated. Throws an average head. Pleasant aroma, but could have had much more hops and more malt sweetness. Lacking in body, which makes the beer taste watery. Some mellow notes of roasted malts. Disappointing.

Bottle. 2006 Christmas seasonal. Dark brown/amber, medium beige head. Surprisingly faint aroma, some flowery hops and notes of apples. Taste is dry malts, candysuger with a light hopbitterness. Watery palate. Short slight sweet finish.
