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.

3.5 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.
