I thought this was Haandbryggeriet at first, but no, it is an offering from a little Swedish brewery I had not heard of before. Called Julnarren Special Winter Ale on the label. Fresh, malty aroma with a yeasty undercurrent. Tastes very good indeed (but not like a bitter at all - more like an amber or brown ale). Plenty of malt, a bit of coffee and some sweetness and yeast. It has a zingy little prickle on the palate too. Very impressive brew, and underrated too.
