UPDATED: MAR 4, 2013 Cask at The Bishops Arms (Gustav Adolfs Torg) Malmo. Deep reddish brown pour with a thin bubbly fast dispersing head. A dry yeasty aroma leading into a fruity, medium bitter taste. You could almost chew the fruit. This is a really heart warming flavourful ale and an ideal example of what a Christmas beer should be!
