StueyD (1239) - Heacham, Norfolk, ENGLAND - SEP 9, 2013
A bright, reddish-brown beer with a frothy off white head. A light, red fruit aroma, cherry, plum and possibly even strawberry, with a backbone of malt. Dry mouthfeel. The dry malty taste to start is soon balanced by a sweeter, but not cloying fruit flavour, again, cherry, plum, and strawberry, with a touch of spice in the background. The dry malty flavour does linger on into the finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

johndoughty (4090) - cheslyn hay, West Midlands, ENGLAND - MAR 24, 2013
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.

Koelschtrinker (11062) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - JUN 19, 2011
Das Bier riecht röstmalzern, aber irgendeine Leichtigkeit ist zu bemerken. Im Geschmack fällt auch zuerst die Malzigkeit auf, die auch bis zum Ende nicht weicht, dafür aber mit der Zeit immer schwächer wird. Zum ende hin wirkt das Bier etwas wässrig. Ein eher einfaches Bier, das aber nicht wirklich schlecht abschneidet.

shrubber85 (7960) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - JUN 5, 2011
Bottle. (courtesy of Bierkrug). Sweet-sour toffee malt aroma. Chestnut brown with small head. Sweet chocolate toffee malt flavor with just a hint of bitterness. Nice, drinkable beer.

Grzesiek79 (3305) - Radom, POLAND - FEB 10, 2013
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.

Ungstrup (29850) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - FEB 16, 2005
A red-brown beer with a small head. The aroma is sweet malty with a clear character of roastyness. The flavor is sweet roasted with notes of yeast and a dry end.

diabel (1609) - Aarschot, BELGIUM - NOV 19, 2006
Bottled at Weekend der Belgische Bieren, Hasselt, Belgium - thanks to MarcusM
Clear, black body. Creamy off-white head. Good lace. Pilsener-like aroma of hops, yeast, soap ... Lightly sweet flavour. Like a pilsener with some more maltiness. Not really bad, but certainly not great.

jaghana (4164) - Strasbourg (Alsace), FRANCE - MAY 14, 2010
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.

DruncanVeasey (7316) - NUNEATON, CONF N, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - JAN 5, 2013
Bottle. Ruby with a piled, rocky pink-beige foam. Pickled cabbage, rust, brine, Germanic shrubby hop aroma. Briney, shrub and honey, grassy notes as from a German lager. Caramel, well done herby sausage hints. Not bad.
