2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Orange color with no foam, spiced smell. Aroma of cinnamon and coconut and some other spices. Too spicy taste and too sweet. It is more like drinking perfume than beer.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Clear, amber color, medium white unstable head. I read on bottle label, that this beer contains cinnamon, orange zest and coconut and really in aroma and flavor is actually good balance of those three. But I am not sure if I like coconut and cinnamon, so if somebody like this spices this is good beer for him/her. Other, I have toughts that here is missing some sweetness, maybe too hoppy (these metal flavor hops) for this kind of beer and absurdity is that I also think that here is missing some complexity, beside these dominant spices. But Ok beer.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
(bottle) Clear, deep amber colour with a medium-sized off-white foamy head. Mildly malty aroma with notes of cinnamon, ginger bread, cocos and other X-mas spices, accompanied by a subtle fruity and slightly soapy touch. Moderately bitter and delicately sweet flavour, light bodied with a mild carbonation. Slightly malty base with present notes of cinnamon; slim, bitter-sweet finish with notes of cinnamon and coconut. Drinkable, not my cup of tea. 29.XII.14

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle. Light amber, small to average and mostly diminishing head. Light to moderate malty and sweetish aroma, some spiciness (cinnamon), faint coconut. Body is light to medium, malty and lightly sweetish flavor, some spiciness, light citrus and hoppyness. Finish is short to average, malty and lightly sweetish, some spiciness, faint citrus and light hoppyness. Bit thin Xmas/winter brew. Beer + cinnamon + coconut = why?

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a dark amber color, almost light brown, topped with a generous beige colored head. Malrty aroma, some fruity notes and some wintery spices, although hard to pick up. Taste is sweet and spicy, some bitterness in the finish. Nicely drinkable, although I expected it to be more "wintery". Still nice ,though.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours amber, with a small head and a tiny bit of lacing. Coconut and citrus share the not-so-overwhelming aroma. Cinnamon, orange, and coconut in the taste. I feared that a beer like this would be too sweet on the palate, but it wasn’t. Instead, I got a decent amount of bitterness - yay, an ale!
