2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Sweet musty nose, orangy gold, low frothy head. Warm round maltiness with honey notes. Sweet at end lingers on lips, countered only by a light bitter tinge. Smooth beer, clean palate. Decent. One of the better Danish xmas beers, but still sweeter than I prefer.

Alcohol but weak nose. Light brown-yellow, little layer of a head, soft carbonation. Malty, alcohol, rice are main tastable sources.

2.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Golden colour, decent white head. Sweet and vaguely hoppy, but somewhat unpleasant aroma. Flavour is quite (too!) sweet and IMHO unbalanced. Low carbonation. An old and afterall easily drinkable Danish Christmas Brew, but try the Blue instead.

2.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pretty well-balanced and harmonic. A pretty regulary Danish Christmas brews. Not as heavy and alcoholic as the blue version.

1.6 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 5/20
A light amber beer with an OK head though it disappears very quickly. The aroma is sour and like brewing cereal (the beer is partly brewed on corn) - I don’t like the aroma. The flavor is sticky sweet almost like a sodapop but without the gas. It finishes of with a weird bitterness - probably because of the hop used. But the bitterness doesn’t balance the sweetness. Much too sweet for my taste - and therefore not a beer I can recommend.
