laiti (4951) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUN 5, 2012
50 cl bottle @ Gastropub Nordic. Rated on 11.12.2010
Aroma has some sweetish, grainy malt and hints of cardboard. Flavour is malty with grain, some cardboard and hints of toffee. Not good – and where is the Christmas?

kiwianer (3315) - Otorohanga, NEW ZEALAND - MAY 28, 2012
Schöne Weihnachtstypische Flasche! Die Schaumkrone fällt ziemlich schnell zusammen, Farblich ist es hell. Das Brauwasser schmeckt sehr schaumig. Im Antrunk noch recht herb-hopfig aber nicht so lecker, der Mittelteil ist etwas milder und der Nachgeschmack ist leicht bitter. Im Abgang bekomme ich das Gefühl das der Hopfen unreif ist, insgesamt ist es grasig. Test vom 31.12.2008, Gebinde: Glasflasche Noten: 8,6,7,6,14,7 - 7,15

Grima (2041) - Saarburg, Rhineland-Palatinate, GERMANY - FEB 14, 2012
Sorry for the german rating, but this is a lousy rating from my "newbie" time (2007-2009), and it’s not worth of being translated. I just added it for the statistics, and to complete my backlog!
Im Glas schimmert das Bier goldgelb mit wahrer Prachtkrone, fein und hoch und langlebig. Sehr viele winzige CO2 Perlen steigen empor. Der Geruch ist hopfig, minimal muffig. Der Antrunk erfolgt sehr süßhopfig, kaum herb, geschweige denn würzig. Der Abgang zieht sich wieder etwas muffig hin, mit der Zeit immer herber werdend. Meiner Meinung nach nicht gelungen.

trapez (1502) - Hilleroed, DENMARK - JAN 21, 2012
Bottle. Aroma of malt, a little bit of caramel and yeast. Golden yellow colour with white head. Malt flavour with some caramel and a hint of orange. Soft mouthfeel. Slightly bitter finish.

ClubGonzo (3526) - Bergen, NORWAY - JAN 9, 2012
Bottle from Galeria Kaufhof, Berlin. Pours a clear deep golden body with a big creamy head. Nose is pale malts, hints of clove and...not much else, it seems. Very neutral. Taste is pale malts, crisp hops and hints of bread. Very anonymous indeed, and not much of anything even remotely resembling Christmas. Boring. Meh.

McTapps (3018) - Ruhrgebiet, GERMANY - OCT 16, 2012
Bottle shared with MichaelBruch. Amber coloured with light but steady head. Taste of roasted malt and nuts with some bitter notes of hops and sour mash. Really quaffable and easy to drink.

kevnic2008 (7120) - Baden-Baden, GERMANY - JUL 19, 2012
Pours a golden body with white fluffy head. Aroma is malt. The flavor is light, refreshing, funk with notes of malt.

Hugi (322) - Baden-Württemberg, GERMANY - JUN 11, 2012
Amber coloured with a medium head. Malty, spicy, herbs, a bit of caramel. Medium bitterness. Drinkable but not exciting.
