1.5 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Gawd... This stuff is awful. Huge plastic/chlorine/chemical aroma. Smells like a dump truck full of melted plastic unloaded itself in a public swimming pool. Taste is overly syrupy and boozy with plenty of chemical, solvent and fusel alcohol. Sticky, cloying texture with a lasting, hot, alcohol-laden, naaaaaaasty finish. Krampus *may* be worse than the train wreck that was Farmer Tan. At any rate, these guys need to STOP MAKING imperial-ish lagers. Fuck this.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
On tap at World of beer.
Not a lot of hops on the nose. Mild citrus taste, however very well balanced for the amount of alcohol. This is a very clean tasting beer.

Bottle to glass. Pale yellow orange, medium head. Pine aroma, some barley and hops. A bit . Taste is not great. Just a raw strong, in your face beer.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
This isn't a total drainpour but I did dump it. A bopper of this is too much. It's just unnecessarily big and far far too sweet.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
22oz bottle poured into snifter
The Krampus pours a mostly clear bronze with a decent beige head that doesn’t last too long. The aroma pine and floral hops with a bit of caramel and bread. The flavor is mostly pine and floral hops with a touch of honey. Overall this is a pretty nice and unique beer.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours a pretty light color with a light soapy head. With less head than expected. Aroma is not super strong but piney. Taste is really resiny hops... piney. Not sweet. Finish is a bit soapy. Unsubtle. Carbonation is moderate and medium thickness. Eh.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Burnt orange with frothy head, lacing, and clarity. Pine, resin, sweet malts. Tastes better than it smells, because they is something off about the aroma that I can’t quite pin down (metallic in nature).
