Finwe (393) - Grankulla, - DEC 24, 2012
500ml bottle from the brewery. Pours clear reddish brown with a tan head. Fruity and roasted aroma with nuts, bread and plums. Flavour has roasted bread, dark fruits and some bitter hops. Somewhat watery palate and roasted, nutty finish.

Toomio (123) - Joensuu, FINLAND - JAN 25, 2014
Jouluolueksi ei yhtään jouluinen. Kohtuullinen aromi. Hiukan keskivertoa parempi. Hyvin keskitason kalja.

Migmar (219) - Espoo, FINLAND - DEC 24, 2013
Dark red, rather big head. Roasty, bready, caramelish, somewhat fruity as well. Medium sweetness, light bitterness. A bit light but enjoyable during Christmas Eve dinner.

Marstonlad (333) - Helsinki, FINLAND - DEC 15, 2013
A deep color of ruby red with a little white head. Aroma is malty, slightly toasty, with notes of caramel and raisin. Taste is light sweet and a bit roasty with a good malty character, the taste does not end prematurely. Caramel and some biscuit and bread in the flavours. Light to medium bodied, slick palate, soft mouthfeel. Mild but good Christmas beer from Malmgård.

Zarkam (344) - Helsinki, FINLAND - DEC 11, 2013
500ml bottle, dark reddish brown colour, small frothy off-white head, average lacing. Roasty aroma of caramel, dried plum, nuts, cereal and herbal hops. Taste is initially balanced bittersweet and turns into a moderately bitter somewhat burnt finish. Medium body, watery texture, soft carbonation. Not bad aside for the texture, not the best from them but more enjoyable than the christmas stuff from the bigger breweries here.

Andy_ (526) - Tampere, FINLAND - NOV 9, 2013
Nice ruby reddish brown coloured clear beer with off-white head leaving lacing on the glass. Aroma is sweet with vanilla. Flavor is malty sweet and little sour. Not much bitterness, short finish. Palate is at first thin but feels thicker after some seconds. Quite high carbonation. Nothing special here.
