3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
A fairly traditional Scandinavian Christmas beer. Lots of sweet malt, caramel malt to give color.
Some spicy hops, sweet finish.
If you want to boast of brewing craft beer, you should be a bit more inventive than this.

Bottle from my father. Fruity smell, like dried raspberries. Similar taste, fruity with some cereal and some malt sweetness. Fairly light body, I would have preferred it a bit thicker. Decent beer, but it lacks something.

[Draught, Den Tatoverede Enke, Copenhagen, 2002] This is a very good bottom fermented brew. Very malty and full bodied. Slightly spicy and fruity and rather complex. I was lucky to try the draught version of this brew. All of this beer is bottled except for six barrels which was made available on draught. Den Tatoverede Enke in Copenhagen got one barrel.
