Finnish christmas beer, reminds me of poor norwegian industrial christmas beer. Not very tasty, the sweetness tastes artificial, and the bitterness feels thin and not very complex. Quite refreshing, but in general poor.

Bottle shared with McTapps. Nuts with some caramel and nalt. Thin one with low carbo and a metalluc aftertaste. Drinkable, but still below average.

McTapps (4468) - Ruhrcity, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - JAN 6, 2014
Bottle from trade with Patrik - many thanks! The beer pours out in a deep, clear amber colour with low steady head and medium body. Aroma of nuts and caramel. Taste of malt, wheat, nuts, dried grapes and honey. Hints of caramel. Easy one, average.

jinroh (401) - ESTONIA - JAN 6, 2014
330 ml bottle at Vantaa Airport, FInland. Pours light brown with almost no head. Aroma is quite modest but has some lightly roasted malts and a bit of honey sweetness to it. Taste is quite crisp and feels light for a Christmas beer. Some malty roast notes and maybe even a bit of hop bitterness, leaving way for a longer bitter aftertaste. Mouthfeel is quite light again, pretty watery - but is somewhat aromatic which is maybe the best part about this beer. Overall his beer is not unpleasant - but there is also little I like about it.

Oakrock (110) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JAN 4, 2014
UPDATED: JAN 6, 2014 No expectations - or very low expectations. However such a nice surprise. Very rich taste. Taste of handbrewed quality beers. Fruity - lot of tastes. Good palate. Like a quality dobbelbock Where low alcohol amount doesn’t matter at all. Best supermarket beer I ever had, definitely. Biological product gets Always 0,5 higher than bon-organic One.

Drank from a bottle at home. This seasonal beer is better what you normally get from this maker. The taste is slightly sweet and malty.

djoeye (1725) - Tromsø, NORWAY - NOV 10, 2013
Bottle, purchased at Kilpishalli Finland. Persistent apricot-vanilla-white head on red-brown body. Spices and roasted malts to the nose, hints of caramellic pine needles. Tastes roasted malts, roasted licorice, grains, finnish sour bread, burnt raisins and grilled prunes. Some bitterness to palate, alright balanced. Ends smoothly with dark syrup, roasted caramel, malts. Overall it should go well along with X-mas dinners. My beautiful ukrainian wife said it was alright. 4spielB4RateMeetWRune
