330ml snowy white bottle as Lapin Kulta Jouluolut Premium III, by courtesy of Finn. Beige head with a slow retreat. Nice, deep russet colour body. Roasted pale malty nose. Roasted malt in flavour. Thin, watered and unvaried, but still possible to drink and to like (Tromsø, 23.12.2010).

Finn (4402) - Tromsø, NORWAY - NOV 23, 2010
Hvit flaske 0,33l kjøpt på Kilpishalli. Julepreget flaske & etikett. Mørk gyldenbrunt. Pent. Hvitt kremaktig skum som varer en stund. Aroma av søt malt. Lite kullsyre. Smak av gress. Tilløp til bitterhet i ettersmaken. 0 julefølelse - bortsett fra utseendet. KI=5

Kavu (2426) - Helsinki, FINLAND - NOV 21, 2010
Pours darkish brown with a light head. Very weak aroma of roasted malts. Flavor is a tad watery with mostly roasted malts. Beats your average lager but that’s about it.

larsniclas (5725) - Billdal, SWEDEN - SEP 24, 2006
[Sampled at RGESG 2006] Amber. Too much of boiled vegetables in both aroma and flavour. Rather soft moutfeel with some sweet fruitiness.

Hildigöltur (5103) - København, DENMARK - SEP 1, 2006
Bottled. Amber coloured. Malty aroma. Sweet malty flavour. Quite thin and bland.

mrdasilva (120) - Helsinki, FINLAND - MAY 6, 2006
Slightly yellow good basic head, deep red copperish color. Cheap, boring, metallic, sharp aroma even has some nasty rubberiness. Metallic, watery flavor. Overcarbonated palate. No maltiness. I don’t see anything related to Christmas in this foul beer.

Storm (2684) - Amager, DENMARK - MAR 23, 2006
33 cl bottle. Amber colour with a weak head. Amlty aroma with notes of caramel. Flavour of caramel with tones of malt. Ends up little dry and bitter. Very average.

Ungstrup (29811) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - MAR 18, 2006
A hazy amber beer with a thin beige head. The aroma is sweet metallic, but also with light notes of caramel. The flavor is of straw, caramel, and metal, leading to a dry end.

fiulijn (15217) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 16, 2006
Golden color. Some caramel aroma. Sweet, flat taste, a lot of caramel and totally boring.
