# 3331 ersma: ein weihnachtsbier mit einem rentier auf dem etikett, das hut und hawaiihemd trägt. witzig. dunkel bernsteinfarben bis bräunlich, viel mittelstabiler schaum. der geruch ist fruchig, kräuterig, süßlich. der antrunk ist fruchtig, pappig, mit hopfen und säuerlichem hintergrund. die mitte wird herber, hopfig, blumig. der abgang ist pappig und bitter. die flasche ist witzig, aber auch nicht wirklich toll. fazit: die pappigkeit dominiert und bremst den genuss deutlich. außen hui, innen mäßig. kann man trinken, muss man nicht. 11,8,8,7,13,8 - 8,40 - 23/5/13

OKplus (787) - Oklahoma, USA - MAY 23, 2013
A - 1 finger of cream colored head with nice retention. Copper/amber body with a slight haze. Tight patterns of lacing. S - Bready biscuit malt, very yeasty, fruity alcohol, faint citrus. T - Bready and malty with a dose of grassy hops upfront. Fruit breathes in through the middle along with a slightly buttery caramel malt. Finishes crisp with grassy hops and steely caramel left on the palate. M - Medium body, medium carbonation. Not really Christsmasy, this could be enjoyed anytime of year. Easy drinking and good looking. The alcohol shows up but is subtle and adds dimension. Serving type: bottle 12-11-2011

500 ml bottle sampled in 2009. Dark golden body with a big, dense off-white head. Light aroma of caramel malt with a hint of citric fruit. Flavor is light malty with fruit and moderate bitterness. Medium body and moderate in aftertaste. Pretty straight forward.

maxwelldeux (3791) - Everett, Washington, USA - MAR 5, 2013
Bottle. Pours a mostly clear amber color with a fairly thick frothy off-white head. Nose is actually a bit hoppy with just a hint of some floral notes. Taste is just slightly bitter, but very smooth. Actually a lot more interesting of a drink than I would have guessed.

Bottle, caramel colored pour. Sweet caramel malt aroma, touch of fruitiness. Sort of bland caramel malt flavor; rather flat. Ok drinkable
