2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
0,33l bottle close to its "best before date". Reddish brown. Some head visible for a while. Caramel and malty with lightly bitter aftertaste. Not too aggressive. Something is missing, but still pretty good bulk from Hartwall.

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 7/20
350ml bottle. Clear copper color. Medium size, beige head, stays. Metallic, malty, fizzy aroma. Malty, minerals, faint hazelnut? in taste. Sourish malty aftertaste. Fizzy. Never again!

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle. Light copper body, small head. Aroma has weak caramel and stale bread. Bland caramelly taste with some iron and zinc bucket water. So industrial. Somewhat drinkable (when you are desperate) but incredibly bland in every aspect. Some hops in the finish but generally no enjoyment found. Don’t ruin your Christmas with this.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
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.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
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.

@ Gyllenbock 14-12-13: mycket diskret doft. Smaken är sötmaltig, sirap och små toner av nötter.

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
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.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Finnish Christmas beer.
Amber. Caramel, I planned not to say nuts, but there they are. A bit of syrup, but rather thin body. Easy.

1.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 6/20
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 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.
