Assertive without being too bitter or strong, notwhithstanding a solid alcohol presence.

Pretty pleasant, with a nice spicy maltiness. Leaves the tongue tingling.

Affectionately referred to as "the Gnome Butt Beer" around my place, this beer is clean crisp and sweet. Sharing similarities with a nice red wine. A great beer for sipping.

Malt, caramel aroma, copper colour, with a small toffee head. Caramel, toffee and treacle flavours. Nicely bitter. Sweet, warming, light bodied, easy drinking. A really tasty beer.

Steib (613) - Queen Creek, Arizona, USA - DEC 4, 2003
Dark dirty brown color with a minimal head. Malty, nutty aroma. Not as sweet as I expected. Full-bodied in its flavor. A fairly dry-roasted aftertaste. I believe the GREEN bottle sat for awhile on the shelve. Don't know if this helped it any or not. It was still a pleasing beer.

Ruby red pour with big pink head. Malty and sweet dried fruit tastes throughout. Could use a bit more hops though.

espenra (856) - 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.

Thanks to akevitt for sharing. Pours a clear brown body with red hue and off-white head. Head is foamy, but laces nicely. Spicy aroma with a very bock-like body. Finishes clean.

Tusen takk to Silje from Drammen for the six pack! ;) The beer was clear brown with generous eggshell color foam. In the aroma and flavor I got caramel and roasted malt, and some christmas spices. The spices came out more in the aroma than the flavor. Slight bitter finish.

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.
