3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 16/20
Aroma erbaceo. Al palato fruttata, erbacea con un corpo lieve. Originale ma preferico il luppolo nella birra. Probabilmente non il mio genere. C’è da dire che è molto beverina. Strana. Ok!! come potete notare non so dare un giudizio preciso.

1.5 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 2/20
Bottle (33 cl) from Systembolaget. Clear amber, medium off-white head. Well, the appearance was the only decent thing about this beer. The aroma is a mix of cheap pop soda and the perfumy small cubes used in public restrooms. Fizzy and thin. Sourish with harsh bitterness.

2.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 7/20
330 ml bottle. Aroma rich in rosemary and laurels. Reminded more of food than beer. Tastes _very_ herby, almost like glühwein with a beer base. Not very good thou. They achieved good bitterness without hops.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
bottle from Bierzwerg, tasted next to Flying Dog’s International Arms Race. Deep golden, large and creamy off-white head. Lovely spicy and herbal aroma. Full-bodied yet the alcohol is quite far in the background, malty base but not too sweet, plus lots of spices that add a christmassy touch. Interesting, not bad at all!
