3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Guldfärgad öl med vitt skum. Smörkola, karamell, frukt och bär i aromen. Mycket besk smak. Det riktigt drar i smaklökarna. Smörkola, grape, citrus och bär hittas. Några julkryddor hittas dock inte; att sälja detta som julöl är i det närmaste falsk marknadsföring. Fast med det sagt: mycket trevlig öl!

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.
