4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Good straw color,small white head that lasted for a decent time and managed to leave a light lace behind.The aroma was malty lemon grass and maybe a faint spice with the taste being sweet and malty with a nice mellow fruit presence of lemon and maybe a mild spice.The alcohol seems to be fairly well hidden,with just the faintest of hints.Hops are there in a mild way.Fairly decent brew in an American way i guess.Thanks go to Love_caissa for sending this brew my way.

Golden colour. Sweet malty aroma and flavour where the alcohol is also evident. Lively carbonation that "fills the mouth". Not as bitter as I expected but it comes late in the finish. Organic and decent but nothing special.

UPDATED: DEC 21, 2003 Rerate (this time drunk at a higher temperature):
33 cL glass bottle. Dark orange beer with an aroma containing lots of malt. Sweet and bitter but not enough depth and nuance to give it a very good rating.

Slightly sweet, fruity and bitter. A bit too much alcohol. Xtra credit, it being organic.

Golden color. Smells? maybe; also some elderflower aroma. The first impression is a too watery brew, for such strength; then the structure improves, and ends in a much better and strong final. Doubtful, on the edge between...

Tastes like Thy Julebryg. Very strong alcoholic/hop taste. Too sweet smell and taste too.

Organic strong lager. Strong enough but not what I would think of as a Christmas brew. Too light bodied despite the strength.

Metallic and slightly alcoholic. Not a very great beer but it’s organic.

Can’t tell the difference for Thy Julebryg. Same beer. This is just organic. Golden coloured. White head, medium lasting. Nose is hoppy and pretty alcaholic. Flavour is hops, iron and alcahol. Aftertaste very bitter, but not in a pleasant way.
