2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
Dark golden with a moderate head. The aroma is rather neutral, but it has weak notes of malt and a touch of hops. The flavour is initially cloyingly sweet, but I get used to it, and it becomes acceptable. it has light notes of caramel and a short, lightly bitter finish. Never again....

Duft ikke noget specielt

Orange colored, little white head. Sweet, estery aroma, some caramel maybe comes up also. Still somehow biting aroma with metallic tone. Medium bodied. Flavor is more unclean with paper and metal, also lemony and tangy caramel can be found.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottled. Dark golden/copper coloured, small, but longlasting white head. Aroma is fruits, caramel and some hops. Flavour is lots of grass, caramel malts, syrup hops and slight notes of alcohol. Once it gets warmer it shows signs of some spices too. Mouthdrying.

Bottled (BB 07/2006 = vintage 2005?)
Copper brown, small steady white head, some lace. Dry slightly woody malty aroma with hints of anise. Sweet malty, maple syrup, grassy subdued hoppyness. Unbalanced, unpalatablely sweet, not very Christmasy.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Happy to pick up this 11.2oz bottle at a grocery store in Rome, Italy. Although mine had a crazy cartoon, buck-toothed kid smiling on the outside. Pours kind of a gold orange with soda like carbonation and a weird spotty white head. Smell is fresh cut grains, spicy pepper. Taste is a little sweet, with malt, but otherwise a decent lager. Aftertaste is a little dry. Sturdy lager, drinkable, not sure what it has to do with christmas, but it probably doesn’t matter.
