Brewdork (204) - Sanford, Florida, USA - JAN 19, 2013
Pours golden with thin white head which quickly disappears. Aroma is sweet malt and alcohol. Flavor is overly sweet with a slight alcohol finish. While not "seriously bad" it’s certainly not great, either.

MrHangover (2139) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - MAR 23, 2014
Bottle @ The No Creepy Country Ticks Tasting, courtesy of dEnk. Pours a clear amber beer with a thin white ring of head. Aroma is rather buttery, malty, caramel and yeasty. Flavor is very sweet, touches of aspartame and other artificial sweetners. Quite unbalanced and messy... Not very good.

annunz123 (809) - Taunton, Massachusetts, USA - DEC 27, 2013
Caramel, nuts, alcohol, and some skunk in the aroma. Flavor is sweet and mild with caramel and a little orange peel citrus. Lots of warming alcohol in the finish. Better than the rating indicates, but not worth searching for--there are better Christmas beers out there.
