Hildigöltur (5105) - København, DENMARK - DEC 28, 2006
Bottled. Reddish brown coloured. Aroma of malt, prunes, caramel and raisins. The same notes is in the flavour. Medium bodied. Decent, but too much aroma and flavour of prunes for my likings.

TimE (5047) - Tokyo, JAPAN - DEC 13, 2007
Dark brown color, caramel and spice in the nose. Slightly sour, caramel, milk chocolate in the mouth. Caramel raisin finish. This would be better if it just wasn’t so sour.

johndoughty (4986) - cheslyn hay, West Midlands, ENGLAND - DEC 27, 2005
Darkish red and poured with a big head which soon dissapeared. Slightly malty and quite well balanced.Not exceptional but better than I had expected.

0.5l can courtesy of ogivlado (thanks!)
Poured a nice brown cola-like body with a white head that went away at a medium pace. MIld caramelly nose, bit malty. The taste is unfortunately also mild and watery. Caramel, malt (slightly roasty), light breadiness... hop shows up stronger than expected but only near the end and in the aftertaste (still far from mind blowing). All in all, what could’ve been a nice beer is ruined by a body that’s way too light for its own good. Pleasant, drinkable but dull.

OleR (4804) - Oslo, NORWAY - DEC 27, 2008
Canned. A big airy, lightly tanned head upon a clear brownish red colored body. Clean, nutty caramel aroma with sugary notes. Sweet , burned sugary malt flavor. Not sticky, quite crisp actually. But there is almost no bitterness to deal with it, only a touch of acidulous fruits. Well-bodied. Slick mouthfeel. Sweet finish.

visionthing (4798) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - NOV 20, 2014
50cl can from Systembolaget, Strömstad. Pours clear copper coloured with an off-white head. Malty and caramelly aroma with hints of dark dried fruits, roasted malt and herbs. Fairly sweet with modest malty flavours and a quite mild bitterness. Fairly standard, too sweet and too boring.

sayravai (4708) - Helsinki, FINLAND - DEC 2, 2004
(Bottled) Clear, dark amber color with medium, tanned head. Dry and slightly burned-malty aroma with rye bread and cookies. Malty, ashy flavor with some dark-toffeeish caramel. Even some licorice notes when warmer. Quickly fading, smooth finish. Very easily drinkable. Medium-bodied, slightly sugary and carbonated palate. Not that bad for the style, and probably accompanies a christmas dinner just fine. Clearly better than the Finnish vienna-style bulk christmas brews.

KansaiBeerLvrs (4597) - Kyoto, JAPAN - JAN 29, 2016
Can from IKEA rated from notes. As a winter beer the lack of spicing was a bit disappointing but as a Vienna Lager it was alright, plus the price was cheap.

stouby (4437) - Holbæk, DENMARK - DEC 7, 2005
Bottle, at home. Redbrown with a small head. Aroma moderate malty and hoppy (caramel). Flavor moderate sweet and light bitter. Light to medium body, soft carbonated. Not that much Christmas in this beer either!
