Bottled (BB 04/2008)
Dark amber color, small beige head. Grassy-caramelly, toasted aroma (quite typical for Vienna-type Swedish and Finnish beers). Burned sugary, harsh grainy and caramelly flavor. All the way very typical Swedish/Finnish Christmas beer.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Orange-golden with a nice, creamy head. The aroma is fruity in a slightly perfumed way, but I also get notes of roasted malt and caramel. The flavour is quite smooth with pleasant notes of roasted malt and caramel, and I also find the slightly perfumed and spicy flavour of fruits here. The finish is slightly dry and bitter.
