COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
St. Nicholas, aka Santa Claus, is a magical figure, the bringer of gifts and an icon of holiday spirit. Forgotten by most is his evil side kick and enforcer of ‘the list’. European tradition says while St. Nick is busy delivering presents to good little boys and girls, Krampus hands out punishments to the bad. A fanged, goat-horned bully, the Christmas Devil uses sticks and chains to beat the naughty children. Dark malts and aromatic hops create the diabolical spirit of this brew. It is finished with lager yeast and aged cold for no less than 30 days. This Imperial Helles Lager will warm even the darkest hearts. This season, replace the cookies with a bottle of Krampus. If he happens to pay a visit, toast to him with this devilish brew. Merry Kramp-mas to all, and to all a good pint!

Darkish amber beer, just slightly hazy. Soft palate. Full on hops. Briney grapefruit with hints of bitter orange and a little pineapple. Causes the mouth to water. Not sure this is a lager but it’s nice!

fiulijn (14327) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 25, 2011
Draught at Ølbaren
Amber color; creamy head. Mild hop aroma, with mellow fruitiness and apricot jam. Full bodied, but the mouthfeel is a bit oily; it doesn’t have the malty and fruity characteristics of Ales, while the hopping is surely dominant and of good quality: resiny and fruity. The final, although well bitter, is completely lacking of malt backbone. Pleasant, without optimism.
