2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Tap, some time over Christmas in Luxembourg. Dark orange to light brown with a thick carbonated head. Some roasted malt and the slightest touch pine nut on the nose as it warmed up. Toasted malty mouth, something green. Quite thin at the end. Not at all robust, boring, drinkable.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bouteille: Clear, ruby-amber coloured, small off-white foamy layer; light to moderate, but all in all restrained, dark-malty nose with almost imperceptible traces of roasted malt; light to moderate sweet-bitter flavour, light bodied for a beer of 5.1%; mild sweetish and toasty finish with a subtle metallic taste. Not so great......

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
The beer in the glass is dark brown with slight reddish head. The smell is subtle, almost even neutral. Only a slight roasty malty aroma comes through. Starts roasty, nutty, minimally sweet, but all very subtle. Nothing comes through very much what the whole would do well, however. The aftertaste shows roasted malt, subtly sweet and very short-lived.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle 33cl. A brown ale very clear with low carbonation and medium head. Smell is typically on amber ales kind of and spicy (sweets, caramel, anise ..). Aroma is mostly on amber malt side and pleasant, caramel like, high astringency at the finish. The beer is oily, hop character is grassy and medium bitter. Not a bad beer, not too alcoholic.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Best way to describe this is "not bad for ABInbev". Very little to distinguish it as an Xmas beer, no noticeable spice or uptick in flavor aside from some faint caramel notes.
