Bottled (BBE 12/2008)
Hazy reddish amber color, small brownish head. Yeasty fruity aroma with some American hops - not really outstanding, it is a bit like a vomit? Hoppy, pale malty flavor. Some hoppyness in the aftertaste. Very basic, standard American pale ale.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle, bought @ Ølbutikken, Cph.
Pours a pretty, deep red with a medium frothy off white head. Leaves okay lacing. Aroma is hoppy with grapes, dry roasting and light tart cherries among some nutmeg. A little thin perhaps. Flavour is powerfully hoppy and very dry. Light spicy finish with coriander and nutmeg. Very bitter and quite an alternative Christmas brew.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Hazy ruby with a medium lasting tan head. Aroma is filled with hops, roses and citrus fruits and some plum and caramel. Quite sweet, but with plenty of bitterness for balance. Not what we in Denmark wuld consider a Christmas beer, but still a delicious winter brew.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from ølbutikken. clear dark amber, smooth huge offwihte to reddish brownish head.
Good aroma of american flowery and piny hops and sweet malts. Aroma is not as powerful/strong as I like it most, but what there is, is great.
flavor is flowery and piny hoppy, sweet malty, crisp, dry, balanced. The hops really do well with the sweet malts - very tasty. Aftertaste is first sweet malty, then the taste round it off with a dry bitterness. Not a hop-bomb, but very tasty nevertheless. Perhaps a little watery, but that is likely because the flavor could handle a higher ABV than 6%. Great uncomplicated US beer. Likely also good for beginners as it does not present itself as extreme as many others.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Dark copper-red with a beautiful, creamy head. The aroma is malty, fruity-hoppy. The flavour has a lot of aroma hops, notes of roasted malt, caramel, fruit (mostly citrus) and a nice and aromatic bitterness. It’s a really nice beer, but I think Santa deserves a bit more Christmas in his private reserve. But nice indeed, and I like the fact that it’s only 6%! 1784

Aroma of malt and pine. Maybe a bit of citrus. Dark amber color with a light tan head. Starts with sweet malt, something complex in the middle, and a whole lot of hop for finish. Some malt goes along for the ride.
