Pours an amber color with a white head.
The aroma has hops and hops and hops, citrus, lemon and a bit more hops. A floral, slightly bitter and really amazing aroma. The taste i dominated by the hops too, but has also some flowery touch to it and some caramel.
A really great christmas beer if you’re a hop head!

Cellared properly at home for almost seven months after I bought a 500ml bottle at Ølbutikken in Copenhagen in May. Slightly foggy, golden body. Thick beige head with a solid foam stand, blanketing the glass. Inviting succulent, floral-hop aromas to the nose. Rich taste of pine needles and plenty of sappy oranges. Great rounded and long-lived finish of dry bitterness. Well made. Festive ale for all seasons (On the second day of Christmas, Tromsø 26.12.2009).
