3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Mörkbrunt öl med vitt, långvarigt skum. Dofter av frukt och karamell, smaker av desamma samt vanilj och honung. En god öl till julmaten, lagom sött, lagom beskt för sillen och skinkan.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
500 ml bottle. Dark brown with a reddish hue. Tall off-white fluffy coarse head. Grainy malt aroma with a hint of roasted malts. Grassy hops. High bitterness upfront. Light bodied, but there is quite a bit of hops and a chocolatey maltiness. Distinct lager character. The hops are one-dimensional and does not really fit with the malts. After a while it all mellows out. Overall this is a really nice Christmas beer from a macro brewery.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Aroma: The smell is dominated by citric notes, lemon and grapefruit. A hint of sweetness, dried fruits.
Appearance: The beer is dark brown, with hints of red. The foam rather light beige, leaving lots of lacing.
Taste: This beer is very sweet, like most Swedish "Christmas Beers", it is somewhat balanced with some citric acids. Bitter notes are nice but however too quickly receding.
Palate: The fluid has small bubbles, and is easy to drink.
Note: Serving type: bottle
