RexTalionis (2603) - FINLAND - DEC 14, 2014
Bottle. Clear amber, frothy tan head. Sweet malts, grainy and hard toffee notes in aroma. Toffee, grainy and some bitter notes in taste. Metallic vibes as well. Sweetish aftertaste. Clean, easy drinking. Hints of burnt bead in the end. Better than expected.

Bottle from a local food store in Pello, Finland. Bought in September 2014. Light amber with a white head. Sweetish with some dried fruit, caramel and syrup. Drinkable but with a low bitterness and thin mouthfeel.

SirLimpsalot (2358) - SWEDEN - DEC 13, 2014
@ Gyllenbock 14-12-13: mycket diskret doft. Smaken är sötmaltig, sirap och små toner av nötter. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone ---- Soberness not garanteed!

Senka (556) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - DEC 10, 2014
33cl bottle. Fresh brew. Metallic and watery malty beverage with a hint of caramel. I do not want to see a brew like that on my xmas table. Expected much more, but magic did not hapen.

Finnish Christmas beer. Amber. Caramel, I planned not to say nuts, but there they are. A bit of syrup, but rather thin body. Easy.

TyggaBrown (420) - NORWAY - MAR 31, 2014
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 (4574) - 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 (427) - 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 (114) - 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.
