edsspoon (146) - Nottinghamshire, ENGLAND - MAR 29, 2014
Pours a deep red with a brown bubbly head that fades to a ring. Aroma of lots of malt and caramel with some fruit. Hints of alcohol and cinnamon and some roasted malt. Taste is sweet and malty with some hints of spices and a mild bitterness, but also pretty watery. Not that great.

corkyrory66 (443) - BELGIUM - MAR 28, 2014
Nous avons donc ici une « amber lager », selon le site. C’est d’ailleurs plutôt une « dark lager », parce que son côté brun est assez soutenu, mais c’est avec l’aide d’un colorant artificiel : le E 150C, un caramel ammoniacal … ça commence bien !! Couleur donc brun foncé, et roux en transparence. Clarté nette. Bulles moyennes au centre, pas vives. Mousse beige foncé, à gros flocons, qui tombe vite. Arômes de pain noir, herbe aromatique, sucre de canne. 1ère bouche souple, sur du malt caramel et du sucre. Arrière-bouche très courte. 2ème sur du caramel mou et du sucre brun. 3ème très banale, avec un peu de pomme de terre. La longueur n’arrange rien. La levure est nulle puisque nous sommes en lager. L’alcool, d’un niveau de 5,1 %abv, est ridicule pour une Christmas. La finale n’existe pas. CONCLUSION : qu’est-ce que les Noêls doivent être tristes au Luxembourg !!! Mais n’oublions pas que nous avons affaire à une succursale d’Inbev … rien d’étonnant donc.

ThirstyBird (1217) - Düsseldorf, GERMANY - JAN 25, 2014
Thanks to erzengel for the bottle! Pours a clear cola color with a tan head. The smell is roasted malt, spice and some fruit. The taste is spicy and fruity with a bit of caramel and roasted malt ending a bit dry. Light/medium body with active carbonation.

thewolf (10792) - Kolding, DENMARK - DEC 26, 2013
Bottle, bought @ Bierzwerg.de. Pours clear brown with a small, frothy, beige head. Aroma has sweet caramel, light metallic, some apple. Medium carbonation, fine dry and fairly light mouthfeel. Flavour has caramel, light metallic, softly toasted. Okay, even if the metallic notes take over a bit.

ogivlado (5402) - Zagreb, CROATIA - DEC 11, 2013
Bottled 330ml. -Reddish/brown coloured, medium sized off-white head that went away fast, sweet malty nose. Also sweet malty, caramel and light spicy with surprisingly blank finish. Average and boring.
