Easy to drink as water, cause it’s what it mainly tastes like. Incredible that Ringnes can’t do better.

Frode (286) - Oslo, NORWAY - FEB 1, 2014
Bottle 50 cl.
Amber, with a pale tan head. Malt with some caramel. Medium sweet. Rather thin. Nothing impressive, but not bad for a store bought macro-brew.

Rødbrun farge med hvitt skum. Malt i lukt og smak. Ellers tynn og ikke særlig spennende juleøl.

IPAgutten79 (580) - Skui, NORWAY - DEC 24, 2013
UPDATED: DEC 25, 2013 Lys gylden med medium skum. Aroma av tørket frukt og malt. Samme i smaken. Tynn konsistens, men var grei til skinkestek.

Foffern (1276) - Bodø, NORWAY - DEC 14, 2013
Bottle at Bjørk, Bodø. Pours a deep, clear reddish colour with light brown, medium head that fades fast. Sweet aroma of dried fruit and berries, caramel, wood, and some roasted malt, chocolate and a little metal. The flavour is a light version of the same with more leather, wood and berries, and is still pretty sweet. Has a slick mouth feel, and a light bitterness. An okay, light and sweet Christmas beer.

smmaaren (236) - NORWAY - NOV 24, 2013
50 cl can. Light amber colour. White head. Pretty ordinary chrismasbeer. Taste and aromas are weak but the beer does the trick. Happy yuletide...

Bought it to test this year’s Christmas beer. All I can say is: Thin, boring and pretty much tasteless.

djoeye (1714) - Tromsø, NORWAY - NOV 3, 2013
50 cl aluminium can from Eurospar Langnes Tromsø - a great supermarket with orderly display of beers. 2012; bright n tight caramel-white head, diminishes on a dark amber brown body. Some lacing. Scents of dark malts, pine needles, chocolate box, apple peel. Tastes sweet dark malts, sour grass, faint hops, butter, a tiny tiny nut. Very smooth and a bit watery in the mouth, low carbonation. Semi dry at last, with some roasted malt. 2013; about same appearance and scents as 2012. Tastes sweet dark malts, apple peel, very faint hops, hints of cinnamon, butter. Even less carbonation than 2012. Ends half dry, some dark bread, roasted malt, nutty butter, a tiny "smørbukk". Overall decent "Yuletide" beer, but lacks some spices and some carbonation.
