garza (570) - Oslo (NO), Caracas (VE), VENEZUELA - JUN 13, 2012
Copper colour with average white head. Nutmeg and other spices in the aroma but very subtle. Some spiced flavour at first but after it gets watery and unpleasant. Light sweetness and lightly bitter. Light body, oily feel, soft carbonation and a water malt flavoured finish. Did not like it.

OleR (4802) - Oslo, NORWAY - FEB 18, 2012
0.5 L bottle, purchased @Lørenskog Brusshop. Body is clear deep gold, covered by a low creamy off-white head. Not mush for the nose here, a faint whiff of creamed caramel and some dusty hops. Light malt body. Fairly dry, and not very flavorfull. Lively carbonation, watered down mouthfeel. SOm bittering hopdcan be noticed in the finish. No offs, but utterly unexciting. Probably far better from a well kept cask.

dogbomb (960) - ENGLAND - JAN 22, 2012
Bottle. Pours a crisp clear amber with a thin white head. There’s a hint of nose in the form of cakey spices. Once in the mouth it wakens out - liquid christmas cake. It’s mild, but it’s there. Cinnamons, nutmegs, the cakey maltiness. Not overly sweet as it’s balanced with a decent bitterness. A nice seasonal.
