3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Aroma: Smelling of hay, bitter oranges and pears.
Appearance: The brew is clear amber, has a big tan head that settles quickly and a bit unevenly, good lacing and some curtains.
Taste: Slightly sweet brown bread start, fruity aromas, canned peaches, some clean bitter notes.
Palate: Medium carbonation, small bubbles, smooth and refreshing, a slightly dry finish.
Overall: An unexpected easy-going and fruity Vienna lager, with just enough hops to make it sessionable.
Note: Can 500 ml Reviewed 2011-11-14.

Sample at a tasting at Systembolaget, October 2012.
Clear amber with a white head. Light notes of bread, roasted malt, fruit and metal. A boring beer. No spices in this one, a "Christmas beer"?

Reddish brown. Big head, slowly diminishing. Fresh smell, good balance between sugar and hops. Roasted taste with dried fruit and som herbal tones. A next to perfect companion to the Christmas food. I was pleasantly surprised.

UPDATED: JAN 7, 2011 Didn´t have high hopes on this one, but I liked the both sweet and roasted taste. A very, very nice X-mas beer. Goes perfect with some gorgonzola or brie cheese. Try it, you won´t regret it.
