3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottled: Orange coloured. Unclear. Huge light brown head. Malty, sweet and fruity aroma. Some spicy and chocolate notes. Liqourice, fruits and sweetness in the flavour. Spices is there as well. Medium bodied. Alcohol is detectable in the end which is rather dry as well. Typical Svaneke yeast is detecttable. Thus far I’m not overly impressed wiht the new christmasbrews I’ve tried.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
A hazy orange-brown beer with a huge brown head. The aroma contains notes of caramel, esters, and a dusty hop note - could be Goldings. The flavor is pretty much like the rest of the Svaneke beers - no mistake could be made, it is sweet with strong notes of caramel and esters from warm fermentation of a lager. I really can’t find anything Christmas about this beer.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Deep reddish with a light haze and a big dense beige head. Malty aroma, very evident caramel note, hints of dark fruit. Flavor has a fruity sweetness and a hoppy bitter finish.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
(Bottle 50 cl) Hazy amber golden with a warm, underlying orange glow. Huge and frothy off-white head that only dissipates very slowly. Malty, caramelish aroma. Rustic and somewhat artisanal touch. Sweetish malty yet with a faint underlying tartness. Hops do appear to add a bitter finish. Not bad, just a bit flawed and inharmonious. 201105
