Clear amber/copper colour. Off-white head. Aroma is sweet of butterscotch, nuts, butter, caramel and malt. Taste is also butterscotch, nutty, dried fruits, malty and creamy with a tingle of hops. Ends quite dry. Not a very christmassy beer in the swedish sense (and why would it be?), but a warming and hearty one. The sweet notes gives me childhood feelings.

Bottle from Alko. Coppery brown beer with white head. Toffee malty and hoppy aroma. Same goes with the taste aswell with nicely bitter ending. Very well balanced. Simply good.

TET (2550) - Kaarina, FINLAND - NOV 12, 2010
Copperbrown beer with medium and beige head. Aroma is biscuit like malty, caramel and some red berries. Flavour is malty, biscuits, soem caramel, wooden hops and some bitterness, but still quite long lasting hoppy aftertaste. However, the flavour is slightly boring and the aftertaste is uninteresting. Quite light to drink with slightly biting carbonation. Beer with typical Fullerís houseflavour, but uninteresting and mild; basic beer.

mile (3771) - Helsinki, FINLAND - NOV 9, 2010
Bottle. Amber, small and fully diminishing head. Moderate malty and sweetish aroma with toffee, notes of butter. Body is medium, malty and sweetish aroma, some toffee with roasted malt. Finish is short to average, malty, some hoppyness and roasted malt. Typical Fullerís house style, aroma and flavor not in balance.

BeerBaboon (1941) - FINLAND - NOV 7, 2010
Dark red ale with not much head. Aroma is dark fruits and caramel. Flavour of sweet, roasted malts. A little bit dry with mild bitterness. No strong aromas or flavours here so it is quite difficult to say much about this beer.
