bark (255) - Linköping, SWEDEN - NOV 27, 2004
Bottle. The foam is beige, compact and finger thick. The colour is dark ruby.

The smell is quite mild, malty and somewhat sweet sour with some notes of crisp bread.

The carbonation is quite strong with small bubbles as it should be in a Swedish Christmas lager.

The taste is malty with some sweet notes. The slowly growing bitterness got some burned and fruity notes. The finishing taste is gentle and dry.

This is a quite discreet dark lager. On the other hand, if a beer should be able to accomplish the Swedish yuletide smorgasbord with its smoked, salt, sweet, sour and peppery tastes, it might not be too robust.

A lot of good roasted malt flavours. Not very dry. The right beer for christmas.

LarsHolmer (112) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - FEB 17, 2003
The Christmas 2002 had many beers, much more fulbodied than this one, thin with too much sweetness in the end.

grefwen (7) - Jämjö, SWEDEN - JAN 14, 2004 does not count
I'm not fond of christmasbrews, and this was no exception. It doesn't taste very much, and gave an overall boring impression. I'm not saying that it should be avoided at all cost, but I wouldn't be sorry if the store was all out of it when I came to make my purchase.
