Copenhagen 2/1 2016. 40 cl bottle from Kvickly. Nice special bottle by the way. Pours slightly hazy reddish brown with white head. Settles as thin layer of foam. Aroma is quite sweet. Brown sugar, cinnamon, caramel, yeast and various spices. Low carbonation and oily palate. Taste follows the nose. Rather spicy and sweet hints of yeast and orange peel. Quite fine for this type of overly sweet seasonal brew. But it is ok that it's only available for a few months every year.

Bottle 40cl. Caramelised colored medium head diminishing. Sugary texture. Good carbonation. Red brown color, a bit hazy. Aroma is leaves, earth, sugar syrup, cloves, roasted malt. Sweet taste of sap and caramel. Flat for the palate compared to visible carbonation level.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle, 40cl. Pours light brown, reddish tea or cola-like colour with small, beige head. Spicy aroma with cinnamon, ginger, cloves, pepper and almonds. Malt, sweetish caramel flavour with some of the spices along at first. Then follows some ripe fruits, ginger and cloves. Ends with light pepper and cinnamon. Some yeast and wheat alongside. Warming alcohol on a medium body. Great for a cold winterday. Quite alright.

(2) Not worth trying. There is no christmas in this bottle - where is it? It is not that balanced - to the extend that I would buy this beer again. It might be better on tap.

En rimelig juleøl. Ikke brunkage på flaske, men en fin smag af let krydderier. Ikke det store sus, men rimelig.

UPDATED: OCT 26, 2015 Dejlig let krydret juleøl. Tilpas med sødme i smagen. Bliver dog hurtig for flad og noget kedelig.

Light brown and transparent beer - looks nearly like cola. Very spicy aroma with cinamon, ginger, cardamom, cloves etc. Tastewise it has similar spicy notes but with a both yeasty and malty character. For what it is it is quite nice. Just as i like a spicy pumpkin ale a few times a year this one fits nicely for christmas time.
