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.

SilkTork (5414) - Southampton, United Kingdom, Hampshire, ENGLAND - FEB 25, 2012
250ml bottle from Monoprix, Marseille. A mildly syrupy lager. Not much happening - some honey notes. Drinkable and acceptable, but not otherwise note worthy.

Bragesnak (5395) - Aarhus, DENMARK - JAN 4, 2014
From Brd. Schmidt, Viby J, Dk. Bottled, 281213. Amber with beige head. Aroma of malt. Flavor with caramel and spices.

ThomasE (5174) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAY 8, 2008
Clear fully golden colour with a small white head. Malty, fruity and spicy aroma and taste with an alcohol sweet note.

Beer5000 (5125) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JAN 4, 2008
650ml bottle. Clear golden body with intensive carbonation and a small off/white head. The aroma is vague malty and a bit perfumed (spices?), don’t like that smell. Flavor is quite mild malty with some kind of perfumed bitterness. Watery body and not well-balanced, a bit to thin and sweet. Forget the Christmas stash, the world has room for a wider idea of a suitable beer for the season than Norwegians. As a Bière de Garde I find this more ordinary and with a lack of the flavors I expect compared with others I have sampled. To ordinary and weak.

Idiosynkrasie (5020) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - FEB 5, 2012
650ml bottle. Clear copper with yellowish off-white head. Grainy aroma, hay and straw, minimal alcohol note. Taste is sweet caramel, fizzy grainy and slightly alcoholic finish. Nothing special.

OleR (4804) - Oslo, NORWAY - NOV 24, 2007
Colorful 650 ml bottle. (Christmas decorated) Fruity Belgo-yeast to the nose. Taste is bland fruitiness with mild, underpowered malts and hops. Watery palate. Empty finish. Blah...

ClubGonzo (4753) - 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???

jaghana (4729) - Strasbourg (Alsace), 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.

Finn (4710) - Tromsø, NORWAY - JAN 30, 2008
Bottle 0,65l. Golden colored. A shortlived creamy head. Aroma of berries. The flavor is dominated by sweet fruit and berries. Sourish bitter finish. No Christmas feeling at all. Label design better than the content.KI=4
