2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours clear amber with small white head. Nose is caramel. Aromas are sweet malts, caramael, some fruits (orange peels), candi and light spices. Average carbonation, light body. Short sweet finish. Very light aromas for a christmas ale, but quite drinkable anyway.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
65cl bottle at our holiday home in France. Clear amber / golden with a small white head. Light to medium body with moderate carbonation. Quite sweet with some herbal bitterness. Caramel, malts, fruits, sugar, herbs and spices. Reminds me of the Panaché-beer-lemonade they sell here in France, not too good.

Bottle. Amber color with small head. Aroma is faint, even absent. Taste is medium sweet with light notes of spices and somewhat like orange peel. Finish is light sweet and short. Nothing interesting in general.

Bue à la pression. Nez miel. Palais malté, saucée candi bien present mais pas écœurant. Correcte pour une biere de noël basique.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Golden yellow looks, not much head on top. Aroma has barley malts, and some strange citrus notes. Taste starts with the same, very artificial citrus flavor and then some barley malts. Light body and high carbonation. An easy drinking lager, but that’s not much.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle @ Hoppy Advent Race in Space, Sønderborg. Pours clear golden with airy white head. Clear aroma of yeast, with notes of hops and some malty touches. Sweetish, malty flavour, with estery notes and hoppy touches. Mild, malty afteraste. Well, drinkable but nothing very exciting. Rather sweet for the style.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle, 5.8%. Weak caramelly aroma, a little vegetable as well. Clear dark golden colour. Big stable white head. The flavour is sweet and spicy. Tastes of orange peel and some OK malt. Does not sound too good, but it is not bad, afterall.

Hmm bottle. Having just had another beer from this lot, expectations were low. And correctly so. Deep amber flat looking, no head. Sweet, malty, caramelly, flat, lacking bitterness. Just not very nice really.
