2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bügelverschlußflasche: Hazy and amber, mid-sized creamy off-white head; sweet malty-fruity nose with a yeasty touch and a tinge of cinnamon; uniforme sweet flavour, almost full bodied, sticky; solid sweet-fruity finish, X-mas spices (cinnamon) detectable. Presumably a well crafted Ale, but too sweet for me......

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
(swing top bottle) Cloudy, bright amber colour with a big and slightly tanned foamy head. Sweet and yeasty (cara-)malty aroma with spicy notes of cinnamon, ginger, pepper and vanilla, accompanied by citrus-fruity hops. Moderately sweet and slightly bitter flavour, medium to full bodied with a smooth carbonation. Cara-malty and slightly yeasty taste with Christmas spicy notes like gingerbread and cinnamon, rounded up with a citric fruity hops-character; moderately sweet malty and slightly bitter hoppy and spicy finish with a calm alcoholic bite. Smells and tastes like the stronger version of the CB Brown Ale. 26.XII.10

Bottle. Hazy orange, low off-white head. Caramel and fruit malt base, candied apple, berries, light wooden notes, citric aromatic hop finish - feels christmassy alright. Full chewy body, silky, sparkly mellow mouthfeel. Nice.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Thanks to jonas for that bottle. Looks simple but really good. Beer in the glass zippy, small head. Aroma a bit soapy. Starts strong, malty-spicy, notes of christmas spicy and butter cookie. Finish more alcoholic, but still well balanced. Warming aftertaste. A good one!

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
500 ml flip-top bottle from Wasana’s in Germany. Pours a a dark amber-orange color with a fast to go beige head. Aroma is citrus, candied malt. Taste is rather light for style but a really nice touch of fruit and dry wood. Palate is also smooth even for this style. Not a huge fan of style most of this time but this is nice.
