Bottle around Christmas 2005.
To be honest I didn’t think this one was very special compared to the regular "Kalasöl". Maybe they just put a new label on for Christmas? Sure it’s still a good, perhaps even great, beer, but shouldn’t be called a Christmas beer by my standards.

Second rating.
(33 cl bottle)
Sour and hoppy scent, some stables with horse droppings, citrus. Copper color, tan head. Skunky bitter old papery cardboard taste. Dry and oxidized. A bit hin mouthfeel. Some citrus hoppy taste.

bager (2120) - Copenhagen N, DENMARK - JAN 6, 2006
Bottle. Not much head. Amber colored. Caramel and malty taste. Also a bit of cinnamon taste in there. The palate a little to thin for my taste. But all in all a nice beer.

Fresh cracked grains and honey in the nose, amber color, lathery head. Sweet caramelly malt, light cinnamon spice end that lingers. Medium body. Good but not thrilling.

Thanks Secret Santa Jonas - You are a gem! ight brown color with a fast diminishing super small head. No carbonation. Sweet toffee, caramel and honey nose. Cinnamon and kardamon traces - malt and toffee, all in all light and also thin bodied.

Pretty orange amber, low tanned head. Delicate chewy malt and grassy hop aroma. Fine fruity baseflavor with a lovely subtle pine and grass counterpoint, slightly thin and metallic center though - body is comparably light. Grassy and light roasted aftertaste.

Amber coloureds, thin white head. Yeasty, fruity, hoppy aroma. Bitter, fruity flavour. Some hints of peach in finish.

MrWalker (926) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - NOV 14, 2005
Amber with long lasting head. Crystal malt and sulphur aroma from their own maltings comes through a great deal. Also so in taste, unfortunately. This has almost turned into a big brewery beer, with veggies and dull aftertaste. Quite a disappointment. It used to be a very good beer.

MiP (15272) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - NOV 4, 2005
Bottle. Very nice hop aroma, and quite malty. Toffee colour, small head. Malty flavour. Also a little sweet in a way that could be characterized as christmassy. But not enough alcohol to really make me happy.

Thanks to sk8viking for this one! 33cL bottle BB 03/05. Clear reddish-amber pour with a nice cap of creamy off-white head. Sweet caramel malt, fresh floral hops, and a pleasant nuttiness provide a very pleasing aroma. Medium nutty-malty backbone and very smooth on the palate. Really good feel from this one. Flavor picked up most of the aroma, as well as some light woody notes. Wish it was just a little heavier on the flavor, but very good Oktoberfest all around.

Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - SEP 11, 2005
(Bottle 33 cl) Amber or almond coloured with a creamy, lasting head. Very, very aromatic from the top quality hops which are characteristic of Nils Oscar. Notes of dry sherry. Very distinct bitterness - and very delicious indeed. 210202
