yngwie (13106) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - APR 7, 2012
Bottle, 75cl. A clear, dark amber colored beer topped by a dense, light beige head of finger-thick size. Fruity and candy-ish aroma with some notes of toffee. Sweet and fruity flavor with some bitterness and a faint caramel touch. Warming, full-bodied and nicely carbonated. A decent beer, not very Christmas-ish in my book, and lacking on complexity. 110826

Theydon_Bois (7898) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - MAR 29, 2013
Purchased from Carrefour in Steenvorde (petrol stop) and split with Leighton and Bruce in J98 LLY en route to Kortrijk. Lightly hazed dark amber with a big frothy biege head that retains well. Nose is toffee, yeast, clove, banana, spice. Taste comprises yeasts, toffee, light spice, brown sugars, touch of booze, hint of smoke. Medium bodied with fine carbonation, some bitterness in the finish. Ok stuff.

brontebeach (153) - Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 4, 2013
An OK christmas beer. Pours with thin tan head, burgundy body. Malty bread aroma. On the palate balanced and soft, with a mere hint of carbonation. Raisin linger.

sayravai (4667) - Helsinki, FINLAND - DEC 12, 2008
Bottled, 0.75l. Clear amber - hazy with yeast - with a small, partly lasting head. Very mild aroma of caramely malt, berries, nuts, cinnamon, and some other spices. Caramely-malty flavor with yeast and lots of Belgian-style fruitiness. Spices are present, but not as dominant as in the aroma. Medium body with quite a lot of carbonation for this brewery. Something between Leffe and Jacobsen Golden Naked, which equals roughly something ok, but nothing very interesting.

(Bottle, 0.75 l, on 2008-12-24) Deep amber. Almost clear. Medium sized white head. Malts and hint of dried plum in nose. Full bodied palate with quite a lot of carbonation. Malts, dried plum, bitterness, syrup, sweetness. Malts and light bitterness in aftertaste.
