UPDATED: SEP 24, 2010 This is a good balansed, beer for the typical winter seson food. But it is a good chosis to save some bottles to have for special occasions in the rest of the year. Keep it in a dark and cool place.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. A hazy, amber beer with a dense, finger-thick off-white to beige head. Lacings. Milk chocolate and some roasted malts on the nose. A good dash of yeastyness and some hops too. Smooth and effervescent, medium body fullness. Quite bitter in the finish, with milk chocolate and roasted malts initially. Ok, so it’s designed to go with traditional Christmas food, and I think it will, but it won’t be my preferred choice. It beats most of the low ABV choices, but I prefer a slightly bigger one with my Christmas food. 100514

Nice brown color, bread and caramel, very modest bitterness from hops. OK with food, rather boring on its own.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
330 ml bottle, bought at Lørenskog Brus-shop. ABV is 4.7%. Dark brown colour, big off-white to beige head. The aroma has very moderate fruity notes, followed by notes of brown bread, hints of caramel. The flavour also has a certain fruitiness, slightly acidic, followed by notes of münchener malts, bread and caramel. Moderate but noticeable hops in the finish. Dry aftertaste. No masterpiece this one, but drinkable.

2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Flaske 0,33l mottatt som gave fra Rune. Takker. Mørk gyldenbrun på farge. Uklar. Pent kremaktig skum som varer. Aromaen er svakt røstet malt. Smaken er forsiktig røstet med en anelse krydder. Balansert. Tørr svakt bitter ettersmak. Antakeligvis har de dekning for navnet: Vil sikkert duge godt til ribbe og pinnekjøtt. KI=2
