1.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 4/20
Pours a nice dark clear amber. Aroma is almost identical to the run of the mill Pripps Blå, vegetables, syrup and perhaps a tiny bit of cardamom. Thin quick flavour of vegetables, anoying but not suprising is the use of artificial colours.. Buttery finish. Very poor, drain pour.

2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottled (BB 05/2006)
Amber, nut brown color, small brownish head. Grassy, sugary aroma. Not so sweet as 3.5% version. Medium-bodied, typical Vienna like caramelly, roasted flavor. Hints of grassy hops in the aftertaste. Very close to Finnish class III Christmas beers.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottled. Amber colour, small beige head. Aroma of caramel and harsh hops. Flavour is not as sweet as the 3,5% version, more dominated by malts and even hops. Mainly the hops is balancing away the total sweetness. Could be a bit sweeter in my opinion, but wellbalanced still, though it becomes a bit dull and boring. Not too much aftertaste, mayber some caramel and a bit roast.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Sweet Christmas beer. Some rather harsh hops tries to balance teh malty sweetness without succeeding. A major brewer should do better than this.
