Pours a reddish orange with a medium white head. Aroma of caramel malts. Sweet, sugary taste, with a subtle bitter finish. Very(!) bland.

Quite basic and watery supermarket Christmas beer. Nothing complex. Quite thin. Short on the finish.

Maltaroma med noe karamell og sitrus. Okay balanse, god sødme. Helt grei. (Munkegata, 16.11.13)

500 ml can. Anonymous smell. Caramel colour. Good mouthfeel, but does not taste very much and the aftertaste is way too short.

33 cl bottle from Coop Prix supermarket. Pretty average christmas-beer from Hansa. I would go for the stronger version or the much better Julebrygg. This is thin and watery.

Absolutely great christmas dinner beer from Hansa. Tastes and smells like traditional and simple christmas beer, and will perfectly match the christmas eve dinner. Well-balanced and refreshing.

50 cl alu-can abv 4.5 from Eurospar supermarket, available elsewhere too.
The white-caramel head vanishes and leaves a ring and various lacings on the copper-brown body.
Scents of sweet and roasted malts, some herbs or spices.
Tastes malts, dark syrup, barbecue.
Malty in mouth, and lacks the spices I though would come when I sniffed before pouring.
Actually a standard Hansa has more aftertaste than this. Disappointing.

Amber coloured, with a tiny off-white head that fades quickly. The aromas are about the same as their Julebrygg, but not quite as strong; less of the butyric acid (aka. vomit), and less of the caramel notes, but still quite metallic tasting. Just like Julebrygg, this beer is sugary sweet, sticky, unpleasant and not worthy of being called a Christmas beer.
