3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draught at Zly Casy, Prague. Clear deep golden beer with a nice offwhite head. Malty caramel aroma, citrus, floral, biscuits. Hoppy floral flavor, biscuits, some alcohol. Ratebeer says doppelbock, label at Zly Casy says IPA. Id say it is somewhere in between.

3.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottled. Aroma is very, very good (as usual). Appearance is very impressive as well - clear amber with a beautiful beage head. But the taste was a bit dissapointer. Body is full of caramel tones, spices and nutty, but some alcohol spoils the shole impression. Finish is a bit hoppy, but again I expected more.

Bottle. Thanks Nick. Pours clear Reddish Brown with an off-white head. Doughy aroma. Liquid bread. Full bodied and caramel flavoured base. The ’christmas; elements are quite subdued which isn’t unpleasant. There’s an almost medicinal hop edge to it as well. Very nice but not as bold as other Matuskas.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle @ Pivni Rozmanitost, Prague. Pours clear ruby amber with a creamy head and lacings. Lots of fresh piney and grapefruity hops. Some caramel, very vague spices and a power piney bitter finish that lastes throughout. Smooth and dry.

2.6 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Crystal bronze body with massive head. Aroma is sweet and alcohol. From the taste I would say little bit too much alcohol as it is overkilling the malt sweetness. Some nutty flavours on the background. Finish is bitter and (again) with tones of alcohol. Maybe the alcohol is that should be so Christmas about it? :)

3.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Color is dark orange, clear with creamy head. Aroma of dough,... that’s all I can get. Taste is light sweet and a bit bitter at the end, well balanced. You can feel some cloves when you drink it. A bit like mulled wine dry ending.. Soft carbonation, sticky texture and long finish. I like it a lot

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
From the bottle. Amber in colour, aroma of Christmas spices and the taste is more of the same with nutmeg and some dark, Christmas pudding fruits. Very good.
