Nonshaugen (205) - Fetsund, NORWAY - NOV 17, 2015
2015 vintage. 50 cl can. Dark amber to reddish brown, three-finger dark tan to light brown foamy head, nice lacing, a few lazy bubbles moving upwards. Subdued aroma of dark, bready malts and christmas cookies. Mouthfeel is medium, dry and bitter. Lots of flavours going on. Dark malts, caramel, toffee and spices, really good for a 4,6% ABV beer. Big question, will I buy it again? And again? Oh, yes, I will. In my opinion, Ringnes have done a way better job with this, than many of the other major brands in Norway this christmas. (And I’m no great fan of Ringnes...)

asimeow (234) - Sandsli, NORWAY - DEC 23, 2014
0,5l can, 2014. Dark, cola colour. Minimal head. Sweet lager aroma. Slight port aroma. Taste of raisins and lager. Like a raisin pilsner. For an xmas brew, I’m not horribly disappointed, and for a lager, it’s not too bad (I’m not a huge fan of lagers, generally speaking).

Litt kunstig aroma av rosiner og malt. Litt sukkersøt, men ellers grei.

Frode (383) - 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.

arsol (787) - NORWAY - DEC 28, 2013
Rødbrun farge med hvitt skum. Malt i lukt og smak. Ellers tynn og ikke særlig spennende juleøl.

IPAgutten79 (823) - 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 (1499) - 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.
