2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
Yeast, berries and shampoo in fragrances. Fruity, bitter taste and yeast. No good bitterness that fills the upper and front part of the mouth for a long time. It goes to drink but I would recommend to forego it. Follow me @ Kung av öl @ Facebook for more pictures and ratings.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Big frothy head.Light yellow hazy liquid. Smells of hops and yeast. Less stale than other ales with the "gorgeous cellar aroma". The brewer has resisted the normal trend to make this kind of beer oversweet and strong in alcohol. So it works! Not at all the best xmas beer this year, but pretty decent.
