This beer is our new X-mas beer for the coming season. Milder and less powerful roasty taste than Nissefar. More maltiness from the crystal malts and more fruity taste from lots of aroma hops, incl a hard to describe taste from our secret ingredient.

TET (2639) - Kaarina, FINLAND - MAY 2, 2008
Nissemor is good-looking beer with big and long-lasting beige head. Aroma is very great: sweet and roasted malts together with some fruits. Flavour is very roasted, slightly sweet and also lot of hops are found. Quite easy to drink and lot of carbonation that comes lower quite quicly. There are lot of hops and roasted malts, but sweetness balanced roastiness nicely and aroma is absolutely great.

SaintMatty (6809) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - FEB 27, 2008
500ml Bottle- Dark brown with red tinges and a tan head. Fruity and slightly metallic aroma with a very slight hoppiness. Chocolatey, fruity and hoppy taste which is quite nicely balanced and its taste belies its strength.
