1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Color of copper. Medium offwhite head that quickly disappears. Mild aroma of caramel and some synthetic candy, that I can’t put my finger on. The taste starts off with a mix og caramel and christmas-soda. Semisynthetic, almost astringent/metallic. Also very watery mouthfeel. All in all a pretty boring beer, even considering it’s only 4,6% abv.

0.5L abv 4.6 alu-can picked up at Obs Hypermarket Tromsø.

Some lacings inside the mug and on the surface.

Tastes roasted malts, mild hops, dark syrup.
Mouthfeel as lager. Quite alright, but not very Yuletide.

The ending is very ordinary and short.

Really bad, especially considering it’s a christmas beer. Blind-tested, we were all sure this one was cheap and bad.

1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
50cl can from Rema. Pours deep amber with an off-white head. Caramelly aroma with malt and just a tiny hint of fruits and roasted malt. Sweet and caramelly like carbonated caramel water with alcohol. Some bitterness in the finish is detectable, but this is not my kind of beer. I tried it before, but this time I will try to remember not to try it again. Drinkable, but sweet and boring and there are far better alternatives in my opinion.
