Tried this beer twice now. Once at a Christmas beer tasting, where it was the second worst scored by my group of friends. Had it last night just to see if it was still a bad. And I was surprised. It wasn’t horrible. Not perfect but drinkable.

Bottle at the Venabu fjellhotel pours a dark red ale with an off-whie head. Aroma had some caramel malt. Taste offered more malt and caramel notes with some bitterness but I?d have looked for something to offer a bit more presence to be in the category of ’Christmas ale’.
