Labelled as Christmas beer because Vienna-lagers are the traditional Christmas style in Scandinavia. This is one of the better examples, with a reasonably complex character.

Pours a deep garnet, the head is generous and beige, the lace is decent. Nose is light toasted grains, a hint of caramel. The start is sweet, the top is light, the finish is dry, lightly carbonated, the hops are light, but a fair to middlin beer at any rate. Ranks #759 on my master beer list.

Pours a dark brown color with little head. Sweet and malty, with notes of bread, biscuits, and cookie dough. Also a hint of fruity sweetness at the top. A good beer, but I’ve had better Christmas beers.

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.

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.

A rare beer from Akevitt. Moderate sweet malt and some spice. Clearly a lager, but I wasn’t sure it was a Vienna. Dry finish, but there is some sweetness in the flavor. Not bad for cheap beer from a can.
