Koelschtrinker (17292) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - JUN 10, 2011
Der Trend, ein Weihnachtsbier heruaszubringen, scheint nicht abzuweichen. Aber auch bei diesem Bier gibt es nichts, was auf die kalte Jahreszeit hindeutet. Mild-malziger Antrunk, der sehr schnell verebbt. Im Mittelteil bleibt so eine wässrige Hopfennote, hier sollte das Bier eigentlich würzig werden. Sollte. Im Nachgeschmack eher mangelhaft würzig, etwas herb, frisch. Danke an kappldav123 Test vom 23.12.2007, Gebinde: Glasflasche Noten: 9,7,8,5,13,8 - 7,75

0.5 l bottle, thanks Timo A! Copper color. The aroma and flavor is sweet and bready with some caramel and herbal notes. Smooth mellow palate. Somewhat simple yet enjoyable beer.

Bottle 500ml. w. swing top @ home.

Clear medium yellow amber color with a average to large, frothy, good lacing, mostly lasting, off-white head. Aroma is light moderate malty, toasted, hay notes. Flavor is moderate sweet and light bitter with a average to long duration, malty, old malt. Body is medium, texture is watery to oily, carbonation is soft. IMO a bit borring ! [20110215]

Ungstrup (34322) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JAN 26, 2010
Bottled. A pale golden beer with a thin beige head. The aroma has notes of alcohol, malt, and caramel. The flavor is sweet with notes of alcohol, caramel, malt, and a bit of metal, leading to a dry lightly metallic finish. Thanks yespr for sharing.

The bottle looks good, the beer in the glass also. Flavor dry and malty, finish metallically. Not really drinkable. Only an average beer.
