2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
(bottle) Cloudy, murky amber colour with a short, not very persistent beige foamy head. Strong spicy and herbal aroma of ginger bread and cinnamon with a light malty and faint fruity background. Slightly bitter and sour flavour, medium bodied with a moderate carbonation. Herbal and spicy taste, again with notes of ginger bread and almost ethereally spicy accents, lingering into the slightly sour and bitter finish. The spicy notes are way too one-dimensional. 23.XII.09

2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
bottle. Cloudy brownish colour, small and fluffy beige head. Aroma of spices - rather christmasy. Malty with lots of christmas spices. Unfortunately the beer is quite sour, I’m not sure it is supposed to be so. I appreciate the yeasty and picy christmas character, but I’m not sure about the sourness. It would surely be a great beer, if it was in top condition.
