Maria (10190) - Thisted, DENMARK - FEB 11, 2007
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

Rune (9661) - Tromsø, NORWAY - JAN 29, 2008
330ml bottle from Systembolaget, Linköping. Clear golden-brown body covered by a thin, beige head. Aroma of sweet dry cheese and dusty malts. Quite unusual taste containing lightly smoked caramel malts, chestnuts and a note of mould cheese. The sweetness is on a moderate level. Dry ending (26.01.2008).

UPDATED: NOV 19, 2006 First rating.
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.

JorisPPattyn (8799) - Ursel, BELGIUM - OCT 26, 2008
Cognac-coloured beer with small rim left. Quite hopped first impression with grassy EU-hops and pilsner malts. Malts, sweet tea of limetea; now, where’s the alcohol? Lightl, grist slickness. This is some kind of tisane without tannines - and without alcohol.

maeib (8749) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - MAY 3, 2013
UPDATED: AUG 17, 2013 Bottled 27/04/13. A reddy brown coloured beer with a little off-white head. A toasty fruity lager. Dry and malty. Nide fruits and plenty of character. A good beer of its type. Score 3.3
Subsequent ratings scored 3.5 and 3.4. Average becomes 3.4

Hansen (8092) - Assentoft, DENMARK - DEC 26, 2004
As always with Niels Oscars, a real good malty flavor and aroma. Yellow brew, medium head. A little thin.

Ughsmash (7429) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 24, 2005
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.

Svesse (7262) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - DEC 13, 2008
Draught at Akkurat, Stockholm, 2 Dec 2008. Reddish brown colour with firm, beige head. Malty nose with caramel, toffee, dark bread, dark fruit and orange peel. Malty, slightly smoky nose with notes of caramel, toffee, ryvita, dark fruit and hints of spices. Nice balanced with a medium, spicy bitterness in the finish. In short: caramel and toffee with a citrus peel twist.

Plovmand (7185) - Helsinge, DENMARK - NOV 27, 2008
Bottle. Clear cooper brown colour with a medium light beige head. Lots of sweet malt and caramel in aroma. Not much hops. Flavour is rich malty with very light spices and a touch of hops. Bread like and smooth. Not very xmas like though.
