Det här är en relativt tråkig sak, kroppen är okej och smaken är lite spretig med inslag av malt och lite choklad.

Aroma: Smell of hay, grass, touch of stable or leather.
Appearance: Clear brown liquid, tan foam with some lacing, but settling rather quickly.
Taste: First a light sweet taste, then aromas from burnt bread, finally a bit smoke and some hops is sensed.
Palate: On the positive side, not as sweet as many Swedish "Christmas beers" are.
Overall: A dry, coarse, rather flat beer but also rather distinctly carbonated.

2.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle at Ulla Winblad, Djurgården.
My company always have a christmas dinner. The places they choose have good food but they don’t have the best in beer. The Åbro christmas lager has a dark brown-red color with a fine lasting beige foam and is perfectly clear (as could be expected by a pastorized and sterile filtered beer. The aroma have a brown malted aroma. The tqaste is light malty with some sweetness. Litle bitterness and no hop taste. Easy to drink but not much taste. For the Swedish christmas table the beer could have much more taste to complement all the different dishes.
