3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
66cl bottle, 5.2%, 1.90€. Wonderful red color with a big smooth offwhite head. Quiet nose. Aroma is roasted malts, some caramel and syrup. Taste sweetish, salty with a soft bitter end. Sticky lips, light to medium body, average carbonation. Nice one for an italian industrial product.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Pours a deep coppery red body with a small off-white head. Nose is caramel, raisins, mild herbs and hints of vanilla and toffee. Taste is caramel, grains, straw and hints of bread and mild raisins. LIght body, medium carbonation. Easy drinking Christmas beer of the rather boring kind, but still a pretty decent thirst quencher.

2.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
660 ml bottle, fom the Norwegian importer. ABV is 5.2%. Copper colour, moderate off-white head. Malty and dusty aroma, but mostly of unfermented wort, hints of stale jam. The flavour is also malty and dusty, distinct fruity notes too. Low bitterness. Nothing particularly "Christmasy" about it. Not undrinkable, but not a beer I’d spend money on.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
66 cl/660 ml, flaske, 5,2 % ABV, købt hos Piemontes Delikatesser på Torvet i Hillerød dec. 2012, 10. december 2013.
Mørk mahogni-farvet italiensk julebryg (årgang 2012) med knap 2 cm offwhite-farvet skumtop.
Sød-/syrlig duft af julekrydderier bl.a. kanel.
Nogenlunde smag, men slet ikke så fyldig som duften. Skyldes det mon den afdæmpede ABV? Sødme og bitterhed i nogenlunde balance, men en metallisk smag ligeså. Knap så charmerende.
Alt i alt en okay julebryg i et bredt felt af samme slags.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle at home. Pours a golden reddish brown colour with a creamy, beige, medium head. Aroma of dried fruit, caramel and some berries. The flavour is similar and is sweet and a little light. Slick mouth feel, and has a light bitterness. A light and sweet ale. An okay English pale ale.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle (66cl) from Vinmonopolet, Oslo. Clear, red/amber colour. Half-inch cream white head, soft, quite good retention, leaves a robust film and some lacing. Aroma of malt, cookies, red fruits, vegetables, caramel. Medium/light body, soft carbonation. Taste is well-balanced, but also a bit dull. Has a nice malty spiciness to start with, but peters out and finishes mildly bitter and lacking in aftertaste.

66 cl bottle @ KBF. Rated on 26.11.2010
Aroma reminds me of Stallhagen Sommar! It has some ashy notes, grainy malt, toffee and hints of grass. Flavour has toffee, same ashy notes, some grain and nuts. Quite lager‐like, not your typical EPA.

2.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle. Pours slightly hazy copper brown with thick off-white head. Clear aroma of hops, malt and dried fruit, possibly apricot. Rather unbalanced bitter-sweet taste of malt with fruity notes. Distinct metallic finish. Nothing really to write home about, but drinkable.
