3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle (from Alko, Vaasa). Amber colour, mediumsized beige head, some lace. Aroma is grass, wood, some mild herbal notes as well as mild yeast and fruits as well. Flavour is rather herbal and spicy along with quite bitter hops. A rather wellbalanced and nice brew. Not too much Christmas in this though...

Bottled. Reddish amber colour with mediumsized creamy white head. Also quite lasting, giving some lace. Aroma is fruity, hoppy with some slight caramelly hints. Flavour is much the same, in a rather nice balance. As it got warmer it got some slight rouches of alcohol.

2.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
500ml bottle. Small white thick head which transforms to lacy surface quickly. Clean amber color. Very mild aroma, almost non existent... maybe a little bit hops and citrus. Palate is semi thick, nice tickling carbonation. Flavour is spicy with ginger, citrus and hops. End is sour and some alcohol there also. This beer would be much better with actual aroma.

Bottle. High creamy and lasting creamy off-white head. Clear and beautiful amber body. Caramel raisin spicy aroma. Peppey spicy fruity caramel flavor with just a hint of the alcohol which is well hidden by the sweetness and the spicyness of the beer. Fair amount of hops bitterness. Low carbonation. Long aftertaste.

Bottle. High creamy and long lasting off-white head. Clear and good looking amber body. Relatively hoppy and spicy aroma. Flavor though is sweet spicy at first but also with a bit of bitterness. Low carbonation and a short aftertaste. Would not have guessed on 7% as alcohol percentage.
