33 cl btl 4.6%abv from Joulupukki @ Kilpishalli. (exp.020114)
White standing head. Golden body, some light brown in it. Lacework.
Malty scents. Taste; malt, malt, wood, malt, "caramellic hops" (or just sweet hops).
A little metallic to palate. Ending with more malt and modest hops, a little dry bitterness into it. Overall seems close to that "Aura" they have, with extra malt.
