2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
(Bottled) Dark, clear cola color with a medium, foamy and creamy head. Very mild, slightly sour-vegetably aroma. Neutral-malty, moderately fruity flavor with toffee, some raisins and plums. Light to medium-bodied with medium carbonation. A quite boring brew.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle The colour is clear, dark red-brown. The compact, firm foam is two finger thick.
The taste is quite weak; there are notes of sweet malt and some bitter hops. Overall, the smell is quite neutral.
The carbonation is rather mild with small bubbles.
The taste is somewhat burned with some flavours of dark bread, neutral bitter hops and a touch of salt. The aftertaste is pretty long with a simple bitter-burned tone.
This beer got some nice looks, but not much more.

3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Dark red, almost brown. Vague aroma from fruits and licorice. Flavour brings dried fruits and salmiak as well, but moresome. Quite malty for the brand. Long bitter finish. Surprise!

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
(Bottle 50 cl) Very dark, almost black with a reddish hue and a handsome, tall head. Full-bodied and dry with a malty, lightly burned touch. This almost resembles a dry, Scotch Ale. Heck, they make nice Christmas beers in Sweden. 210302
