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.

UPDATED: JAN 18, 2005 Bottle, at home.
Some taste of malt and hops. The head disappears quickly. The ABV is not felt immediate! Yellow colour? This is not a Christmas beer according to Danish traditions.

Bottle. Nice yellow color with a big lasting white head. Aroma: Straw, hops, malt and alc. Taste: The sweetness from the malt is balanced well by the bitternes. Medium high carbonation. The high alc gives a warming finish. I like it.

Pours dark golden. Aroma rather skunky, but gets better as the beer warms. A nice bitterness in the flavour.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
An untypical Christmas beer out of Denmark. Feels a bit like a Duvel clone but without as much character. Intense gold colour with a solid, lasting plug of foam. Surprisingly soft aroma for a 7.9% abv bock. Very light pale malts, a hint of sticky wine and some grassiness. Remiscent of Duvel or perhaps Carlsberg Special Brew. Still, there’s not a great deal going on there. Medium bodied, with quite an oily mouthfeel. Nice soft carbonation. The flavour mix is as subtle as the aroma: sweet and malty, with faint spices, tropical fruit and some peppery bitterness in the finish. Again, very much like Duvel. Very drinkable for its strength but a little short on character. (33cl bottle, trade with Papsoe - thanks Henrik!, bb 23/4/06)

Aroma like a spiced rice pudding. Dark gold. Lots of spices in an aromatic beer that feels a bit thin given its percentage. Cinnamon, nutmeg, a little warming. This would probably be good with rich Christmas food like pork dishes.
