Vignale (2174) - Malmö, SWEDEN - DEC 3, 2012
Bärnstensfärgad klar vätska, lågt vitt skum som lämnar mycket rester på glaset. Örtigt besk doft med drag av limezest och minrealer men också en störande doft av besk gammal humle. Smaken är riktigt besk för att vara skotsk. Tycker att den rejält tilltagna humlen som nu börjat tröttna förstör mer än det tillför. Bra rejäl maltbas, karamell, shortbread men sedan denna ört- och citrusbeska. Bra måltidsdryck som stramar upp smakupplevelsen.

UPDATED: DEC 30, 2012 Bottle from Systembolaget. 24 SEK. Rather bitter. Tested yesterday evening at the yearly Winter/Christmas seasonal brew testing.

Bottle. Golden colour with a white head. Hoppy, fruity, citrus, grass, caramel, rather bitter. Decent golden/pale ale, but not much celtic or christmas about it.

BeerSkull (1312) - SWEDEN - NOV 29, 2012
(Bottle). The aroma is abundantly hoppy with touches of caramel and orange. The taste is fresh with a prominent hoppy bitterness that dampen the flavor of caramel malt. The aftertaste is dry. A refreshing beer with a lot of flavors from hops!

Tjoxen (172) - SWEDEN - NOV 23, 2012
Pours clear copper with lasting white head. Aroma of ripe fruits, orange peal, esters (strawberry) and hops. Taste is dry and bitter with grape fruit, some berries. Low carbonation. I have to say the same as my swedish friends. This is nothing for the christmas dinner, but its good thanks to the bitterness. I find now spices or anything that reminds me of christmas.
