2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
50 cl bottle thanks to SaintMatty! Sampled on April 20, 2013. BB 130528.
Very filled bottle.
Clear brown color, smallish tan head. Sweet, nutty, some paper, hints of Christmas pudding scent. Thin, malty, light raisin and toffee, mineral taste. Mineral, light roasted aftertaste. Thin mouthfeel, low bitterness.
Not bad, not very interesting, but for a "grocery store" beer in Sweden one of the more interesting ones if in season and you can find it.

1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle. Tries to escape as soon as the cork is popped. Pours an auburn dark brown, soda-like, large, large-bubbled, beige head. Aroma is slight tones of dark malts and floweriness at front. Some soapiness there as well. Later the Christmas spices assert themselves, shoving everything else aside. Taste is very light and watery, slight maltiness, some christmas spices, but mostly just flavorless. Palate is light and watery, quite a bit of carbonation. Sparkling water with a sprinkling of christmas spices.

Bottle. Amber, small and fully diminishing head. Light to moderate, malty and sweetish aroma, some caramel and spiciness (cinnamon). Body is light, malty and sweetish, light caramel and spiciness.
