oh6gdx (20670) - Vasa, FINLAND - NOV 29, 2008
Bottled (big thanks PilsnerPeter!). Amber colour, small head. Aroma is spices, hops and that’s about it. Flabvour is brown xmas cookies, some slight acidic fruityness as well as spices. As it warms up lots of pumpkin and spices, which also dominate the aftertaste. A very Christmassy beer, though not "made exclusively" for that season.
