3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Clear dark amber beer with a lasting off-white head. Aroma is indeed a little strange, something roasted, toasted, fruity... perhaps dry roasted lemon peel would be like this? The flavour comes together much better. Roasted and dry, slightly astringent malt.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Pours a nice orange-brownish colour with a medium well lasting beige head. Soft aroma of roasted malt, some spices and dark fruits. The flavour has a soft toasty maltiness, some dark fruits and spices, caramel and hops. Roastish bitter finish with a slight citrus touch. A good Christmas brew but the Julöl is better though.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. A bit hazy body, golden-orange color, and with a beige head. There’s a strange aroma with caramel and fruits, put I couldn’t pin it. The flavor is more pleasant, with caramel, hops, roasted malt and a little grainy note. Medium, quite sticky mouthfeel, and a grainy and fruity finish. I had some expectations for this one, but they weren’t fullfilled. I found it a bit strange, certainly drinkable, but not too successful. (070705)

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Light orange with a beige head. Citric peel and salt in aroma. Fruity and salty tones. Medium to light body with a metallic finish. Quite a disappointment.

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.

Bottle. Dark amber colour with a medium creamy off-white head. Malty aroma profile with dried fruits and dark bread, and spicy hops. Good balance with a delicate sweetness which is overtaken by a spcy bitter finish.

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

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.
