3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: JUL 15, 2015 0.5l bottle. Clear amber color with very nice white head. It is like a roller coaster ride. First, there is some unpleasant malt aroma that leads to nice caramel aroma. In the end you can feel butterscotch and even some hops. Taste is not very bitter, but ok with dry finish.

4.2% deep amber in colour but with a poor head, a malty aroma and a bit of a Christmas taste.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Another overpriced Christmas ale that suddenly appeared in Croatia. 4 Euros for a bottle. Eh. Thanks Hrabren for sharing this! Poured a ruby/amber body with a small off white head. The aroma is adequately fruity, caramelly, malt dominated really, with a dose of dried figs. While the hops donít make much of an impact there, they do in the taste - which is also quite fruity, backed by a smooth maltiness, with note of cherries, creamy too - giving it a slightly bigger than expected dose of bitterness then, though hardly appealing. And thatís generally whatís the fault with this - the descriptors look good on paper, and yet in practice, they fall flat, too light, watery, kinda feeling diluted (obviously not), not terribly Christmasey, without enough bang for the buck. Too light for its own good, though not the worst ale you can run into, far from it.
