0.5L can. Good strong hop aroma, but metal can smell complain it. Sour, chemical, grassy, strong grain flavors. Almost enjoyable bitter, but something disturbing, maybe metal flavor.

Can as "Merry Christmas Beer". Redirecting here where some users describe Winterbier to be "red" or even "brown". Is it really the same? This one has a golden body with a minimal head. Grainy lagery aroma with hints of pizza. Light grainy and caramelly lager taste with nothing distinctive. Märzen my ass - this is a totally sterile and generic malt-driven pale lager with zero character.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
10/12 As Merry Christmas beer, from local Tommy store. Directly from a 0.5 l can. Honey malt and somewhat grainy aroma. Flavor was sweet, also both grainy and malty in honey way, fruity and even touched with caramel note. Medium to fuller in body with long, sweet finish. Interesting winter beer with some pleasant sweeter qualities appropriate for this time of year, although could be stronger.

Canned 500ml. -as Merry Christmas Beer. Courtesy of and shared with Marko (thanks!). Surprisingly nice dark golden/amber coloured, small off-white head, light butterscotch in the nose. Sweetish malty, light caramel and discreet hoppy with quite empty finish.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
0.5l can from a Tommy store in Split, called Merry Christmas Beer. Poured a dark brownish amber body with a tiny white head. Creamy grainy nose, not bad. Bitterish, slightly crude (read crappy) hop and some light maltiness in the teaste, some apples, more malt driven than I made it seem here I guess. Ok in fact. Caramel notes. Better than expected by a large margin!

Clear amber colour, big fluffy off-white head.
Smell of dough and toffee.
Sinple, malty aroma ruled by caramel escorted by dough and mild hops.
Citric, sweetbitter finish with herbs and hints of alcohol.

Nice, rich flavor on this seasonal beer. Pours a deep copper color with sticky foam. Aroma of burnt toast and caramel. Taste of toffee. Too bad winter is only 1/4 of the year...

Dark red brown in color. Taste of a malty oktoberfest style marzen but stronger in alcohol flavor. Seems to be an attempt and making a strong winter doppelbock but still a marzen. Tasty but I don’t think it is a good representation of either style.
