A fresh beer, that has to be enjoyed at higher temperatures. Slightly hoppy for a Christmas beer, lending it a good bitter feeling accompanied nicely by the spices.

33 cL bottle. Pours golden yellow to orange, clear, with a dense orange head diminishing to almost nothing within a minute. Aroma is malty, medium sweet, with a mild mouldy/barnyard note. Flavour is a blend of slight spiced malt and herbal hops, persisting bitter and only medium sweet. I sense a mild metallic sharpness before the finish. Ends with a mild bitterness and some malt sweetness. Decent but not much to do with Christmas.

A golden beer with a small head. The aroma is pretty sweet and malty with no complexity. The flavor is dominated by sweetness and tastes like hay, the feel is thick. It misses balance and flavor - an average strong beer.
