wildbeercat (353) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - JAN 11, 2014
500ml bottle into a shaker glass; served cold. Aroma: Pine needles, caramel, lots of hoppy bitterness. Appearance: Slightly hazy, deep mahogany body with a massive, creamy vanilla-white head. Medium+ visible carbonation. Superb lacing. Taste: First flavors I get are pine needles and moderately bitter hops, followed by caramel malt, a maple-esque sweetness. Full flavored and delicious! Palate: Medium body, low carbonation. Long finish that ends on pine-y hops. Slightly warms. Overall: A pretty fantastic winter ale! It reminds me of Christmas trees. Great stuff!!

Sparf (116) - Östersund, SWEDEN - JAN 4, 2014
Doftar sött av blötlagd säd, men med en lätt citrusfrisk ton som bryter av. Rödbrun, vacker kulör och ett stadigt, men något snabbt halverat skum. Välhumlad och hyfsat balanserad om än med en viss metallisk beska. Rak, enkel och något menlös smak. Medelfyllig och med en kvardröjande, mjukt behaglig beska. En bra allroundöl till vintermat.

DrSilverworm (6318) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - DEC 30, 2013
6oz on tap at Noen’s. Totally hazy, darker amber red color. Thin off-white bubbly head. Couple bits of lace. Bigger body. Smooth, lighter carbonation. Reasonably easy drinking. Toasty, caramel malts. Light spice. Moderate bitter taste. Moderate sweet. Light belgian yeast influence. Some euro type crisp hops. Solid, mildly hoppy belgian amber strongish winterish ale.

500 ml bottle @ my parents place.December 25, 2013 Beer bought @ "Systembolaget Strømstad" Beer enjoyed from a wineglass with Pinnekjøtt and Aquavit. Amber in color with a thin beige head and medium carbonation. Aroma is hop,citrus,grape fruit and a bit floral. Tastes a bit hop and fruity with a slightly bitter finish. The beer reminds me of a Pale Ale or IPA,but a weak one All in all a ok low ABV beer.

BiffNilsson (212) - Perstorp, SWEDEN - DEC 22, 2013
Rödbrun vätska med brunvit krona. Ganska låg stabilitet i skummet. Doften är fisk och syrlig med tydliga humletoner. Doftar av citrus och barr. Smaken är frisk och ganska söt. Ingen tydlig eftersmak. Viss beska som kunde varit större. En trevlig öl som öl som levererar utan att exaltera.

Nische (676) - Saltsjö-Boo, SWEDEN - DEC 18, 2013
Pours dark copper with white head. Aroma of fruit and roasted malt. Taste is fruity bitter with a long bitter finish. Good ale, however I would want some more spices.

Seffle (164) - Mölndal, SWEDEN - DEC 13, 2013
Flaska från Systemet. Fin alefärg. Mycket maltig smak med god beska utan för mycket humle. En utsökt julöl. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Dark amber in color clear with a thin head. Super malt forward with a good amount of bitterness in the hops. This was strong with a great finish.

Senap (347) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - DEC 8, 2013
Nu mer en klassiker runt jul. Till skillnad mot andra svenska julöl så är den tämligen besk och torr. Passar strålande till julbordet.
