Such a Nice supermarket Beer. You have improved a lot from previous year. Have you changed hops or what? Syrup, smoked grain, rye bread, some spices? - exactly what fits perfectly together with Xmas food, herring and salmon. Well done Koff. Best Koff I ever had. Low alcohol level wasn’t a problem at all.

Clear brown body offwhite head. There’s really much just starch and some dark sugary notes. Not a good one.

MichaelAwesome (3572) - Wanne-Eickel, GERMANY - DEC 25, 2013
Bottle shared with McTapps. An absolutely boring Christmas beer with malt and loads of grain in the dominance. Drinkable and...boring.

McTapps (3574) - Ruhrcity, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - DEC 25, 2013
Bottle from Patrik, many thanks! The beer pours out of the bottle in a deep, light dirty amber colour with low head and medium body. Aroma of malt and grains. Taste of dark grains, bread, straw, woods and barley. Grainy, light unpleasant finish - not that nice to drink.

Silvan7 (636) - Samarate, ITALY - NOV 10, 2013
bottle @ home. profumo quasi del tutto assente, solo poche note di malto tostato ed un lievissimo erbaceo da luppolo. colore marrone con riflessi ramati, limpida con schiuma beige, abbastanza fine poco persistente. gusto tostato/ torrefatto, sensazione lievemente abboccata di caramello. abbastanza amara. il tostato sovrasta un po’ le altre componenti. non molto equilibrata. abbastanza armonica, ma profumi e gusti non sono molto fini...

Zarkam (369) - Helsinki, FINLAND - NOV 4, 2013
330ml bottle, clear brown colour, large frothy mostly diminishing off-white head, some lacing. Medium malty aroma of grain and nuts, light floral hops, taste is slightly sweet at first turning into a small mildly bitter finish with a lightly astringent feel. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. Pretty much a slightly tastier version of plain ol’ bulk lager.
