3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle, 33cl - Dark amber color with a small frothy head. Aroma is sweet and malty with notes of caramel and winter spices. Flavor is also malty and sweet with strong notes of root vegetables, like carrots, which actually works really well! Not very bitter although the spiciness brings a certain sting to it. One of the better macro brewery Christmas viennas.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Mahogany red with a small, but dense head. The aroma has delicious caramel notes and some of malt and light spice. The flavour has the same nice caramel sweetness, and it makes the body smooth and mellow. I also find a bit of spice, but only just. The finish has a nice hoppy bitterness and I think it’s a nicely balanced and charming brew.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
UPDATED: JAN 9, 2009 Big brown head. Deep dark red body with carbonation. Fruity, malty wild berry aroma with perfumy, meaty notes. Sweet fruity malty taste with papery meaty notes. Very unusual taste. Soft, mild mouthfeel. Light body. Dryish malty wild berry aftertaste, stil with the meatiness, as well as some hoppy notes. Quite sweet; lacks bitterness. Strange, and not really that good. (0.5l can, Systembolaget, Charlottenberg.)
