3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. My first from Luxembourg but how disappointing to know that the brewery is owned by InBev. Brown with a small creamy head. Quite malty
but not a lot of flavour overall. A straightforward pleasant beer with nothing that makes me think of Christmas.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle. Dark amber, small to average and fully diminishing light brown head. Moderate malty and sugary sweetish aroma, some caramel – light bread and faint roasted malt. Body is light to medium, malty and caramel sweetish flavor, light bread and faint roasted malt. Finish is short to average, malty and sweetish, some caramel and faint roasted malt. Caramel sweetish and bit thin-bodied dark lager/vienna with faint roasted malt - way too sweet.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 16/20
Średnie piwo. Jak dla mnie za mało nut świątecznych, a więc przypraw, rozgrzewającego finiszu itp. Ale kolor ładny rubinowo-czerwony i piana kremowa i średniotrwała.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Drunk in February. Although is difficult to notice the differences, it tastes better out of the season. A regular beer with not much that make it stands from the crowd, but a tasteful one (in Luxemburg).

33cl bottle. Bbe 04/13. Dark mahogany, thin beige head. Caramel, sweet malt and wet paper, flavor is quite the same with light breadyness. Very sweet. Not good. Not sure about what the xmas is in this one? The red label perhaps...
