Draught@Pikkulintu (way back in 2006). Hazy deep ambery brown colour, small beige head. Aroma is fruity and floral hops along with some spicyness. Flavour is spices, hops and some sweet malts. Balanced and quite pleasant beer, that probably suits the X-mas table.

3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draught at Söderbärke Mikroölfestival. Ruby colour, small head. Spicy nose with notes lavender and juniper berries (even if these are not the spices added), as well as grassy hops. Medium bodied with clean rounded mouthfeel. Complex and intriguing flavour from the mix of spices, hops and caramelly malt. Rather light for a Christmas ale, but who cares with all these flavours?

Draught at Bishop’s Arms, Malmö
Cloudy dark amber color. Very nice aroma, malt, but most of all hops (earthy, English). Good body, where the caramel preveals, on some malt, roasted malt and hop. Final bitterness, equally from the roasted malt and the hop.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
On tap at Bishops Arms, Göteborg, Sweden, in december 2006. Nice appearance, aroma quite herbal and hoppy. Flavor a dissapointment. A little thin and with somewhat sticky hop notes. But interesting in some way. Have had better Dugges.
