3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Clear copper with a small white head. Aroma is pretty malty, lots of grainy, toasty notes. Flavour is a little sweet, lots more bready, toasty things as well as some greenish citric hops. Doesn’t really scream "Swedish christmas" to me, but it ticks the boxes for a decent beer... something that Nils Oscar seem to have down pat.

Red-golden with a nice, creamy head. The aroma has roasted malt and a bit of aroma hops. The flavour has a nice malty profile with loads of roasted malt, notes of caramel, a bit of aroma hops and a nice citrussy bitter finish. It’s a nice christmas beer. 1859

Bottle. Quite nice. clean flavours of nuts, toffee/caramel, tosty caramel and soft citric hops. On the sweet side. I found this very drinkable indeed, even though it was quite light.
