2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Clear chestnut, airy offwhite head. Malty aroma, hints of yeast. Flavour has malt, caramel and notes of brown sugar. Perhaps hints of the promised pine twigs (sic!) and cinnamon. Finishes with a weird sourish, slightly metallic note. Mediocre at best like most other beers from this brewery.

(2) Not worth trying. Not a christmas beer - although - it is much better than a Tuborg - that being said - I expected more.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Nice persistent foam. Smells really comfortable hard roasted malt, nuts and caramel. Easy taste of caramel released in a deep fruity flavor of e.g. raisin, plum, cloves, hazelnuts and a little cinnamon. Slightly sour tang which may come from pine needles. It should definitely be served at 8-10 degrees, as many of its flavors are well hidden among all the other good, thereby risked disappearing at too cold serving. And it would be a shame, because this is simply a great Christmas ale.

2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Copenhagen 15/11 2014. 50 cl bottle from SuperBest. Pour reddish brown with slightly beige head. Dissolves fast. Aroma is faintly sweet - a little caramel and nuts. Low carbonation. Taste is spicy and a little soapy. Taste like Christmas cookies soaked in soap water (fairly strange mixture). You have to be very entusiastic about Christmas to enjoy this.
