Bottle 750ml. Appearance: golden colour, clear, with big, creamy white head. Aroma: Extremally pine aroma, a little bit of citrus, ananas, honey, grapes. Very hoppy. No spices in aroma. Very sweet, bitterness is on medium level. Medium to high carbonation. Very hoppy, refreshing and drinkable. This is not really christmas beer but well done IPA beer.

bnokk (316) - Lee, Massachusetts, USA - JAN 15, 2016
APPEARANCE- dark yellow or light btown - I can’t tell. Cannot see through it at all. Thick & creamy white head stays for days. NOSE- American style IPA all the way. Where’s the Xmas lovin spice? FLAVOR- IPA, all the way. NOTES- don’t be fooled by the word ’Christmas’ in this beer’s title. This is an ipa dressed in reindeer clothes. Humbug! PS- I would have rated this quite a bit higher it acknowledged it has nothing to do with Christmas style beer.

Panzerfaust (719) - Hanga Roa, Easter Island, CHILE - JAN 12, 2016
330ml bottle from Gallagher’s Beer World/El Irlandés. Pours a slightly hazy light orange color with a medium white head that diminishes into a good lacing that lingers. Aroma is strongly hoppy, mildly spicy, showing notes of cedar, pine, ginger, white grapes, green wood, fresh cucumber and green apples. Intensity wanes quickly after the first few sniffs. Taste is moderately bitter with some initial sweetness, pleasant but restrained. Ginger and pine are clearly there in the flavor but not much else. Medium body, high carbonation. Refreshing. Seems at times more English than American in style. A good, efficient IPA that does not feel really like a Christmas beer.

klaing (190) - Florida, USA - JAN 3, 2016
Cloudy orange, frothy head, fine carbonation. Sweet with a hint of ginger. Pine also evident early. Light bodied. Citrus heavy hops rounds it all off nicely. First one from this brewery and matched their reputation. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
