Shared bottle at Cardinal. Clear golden with a white head. Caramel and Belgian ale yeast spicy notes in the aroma. Sweet flavors. Light bodied. Bland.

Bottle looks very good, really christmas-like. Beer in the glass copper-coloured, small head. Starts strong and spicy, like a good festbier. But the finish is more and more metallically and dry, not as spicy as the beginning. Not my favourite.

Bottle. Kind gift from my lovely wife. Good effort love, not your fault it was a poor attempt at a Christmas beer. In fact, it just isn’t. No spice, no real flavour or alcohol presence. It’s a fizzy gold with a white head. Sweet and malty, some honey. Best thing I can say about this is my mrs knew it was a rate so bought it for me. Good work KP.

imdownthepub (9964) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - MAY 16, 2010
Bottled, 250ml from Westholme Stores, Goring, Oxon. Brownish gold with white head. Sweet and malty beer, could have done with a show from the alcohol for a Christmas beer but there was a definite absence, toffee, caramel. No effort really.

rand (1270) - SWITZERLAND - MAR 8, 2010
Bouteille 65 cl de chez Casino à Pontarlier (F). Bière cuivrée-rousse, léger dégazage. Elle possède un arôme malté, goûteux, sucre d’orge et orange. Elle est crémeuse, épicée mais le corps est léger et elle n’est pas très longue en bouche. Elle finit sur des épices et une légère amertume. Agréable sans plus.

yespr (30693) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - DEC 9, 2009
65 cL bottle, fantastic looking plastic wrapped yet colourful bottle. Pours clear and golden orange with a slowly collapsing white head. Aroma is malty and vague spiced. Sweet malty flavoured, light dry spice note. Annis seed like note into a lingering sweet malty finish.

ClubGonzo (3854) - Bergen, NORWAY - DEC 4, 2009
Oh man, what a bummer. The hefty Norwegian price tag kept my expectations up all the way until the pouring. While the smell is interesting, the beer just splashes freely into my huge Du Monde Blanc 0,7 (in effect, line is a bit further down) glass and goes mute and deaf in about 2 seconds. No head, no life, despite my effort to create some foam to smell and look on top of this thing. Bleak, slightly-tanned-lager appearance, not exactly what I had hoped for. This is definitely one of the beers I should’ve read the ratings for BEFORE purchase... Oh well, down it goes, with all its weak, somebody-dissolved-my-chewing-gum flavor to it. Doesn’t even hold enough alcohol to get my consolation drunkenness on. Bad, bad, bad. And they dare brand this s**t Christmas beer???

gunnar (5108) - Sandnes, NORWAY - NOV 30, 2009
Bottle @ Cardinal. Pours golden with a very thin head. Weak malty aroma. Taste is light sweet, malt,berries. Dries up at the end. Strange christmas brew.

jaghana (3700) - Strasbourg (France), FRANCE - NOV 3, 2009
Bottle 75cl. An dark amber beer with a big white head. The beer is not complex at all, very less malty, the bitter-orange taste is too present (like drinking beer with Picon). Quite disepointing beer less intresting than the Pils one.
