Beer4000 (4602) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - FEB 3, 2013
750 ml bottle. Clear golden body with a big foamy white head. A bit weak in aroma, brown sugar, slightly spicy and some yeast. Mild flavor of pale malt, brown sugar, alcohol and yeast. Medium body and moderate in aftertaste. A bit plain, one dimensional and boring for my palate.

Mr_Hensen (52) - ’s Gravenmoer, NETHERLANDS - JAN 12, 2013
Amber kleur, licht voor een kerstbier. Aroma is wat zoet met een zwakke pils mout smaak erachter. Blijft niet lang hanger, abt snel weg. Heeft een wat sterke, scherp palet. Al met al een prima biertje, vergelijkbaar met een palm, maar niet speciaal.

brnandersen (2021) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - DEC 27, 2012
75 cl bottle, shared. Hazy, dark golden colour with medium sized, white head. Fruity aroma with sweet yeasts, caramel malts and orange peel, some alcohol. Taste is sweet. Medium body with a thin to creamy texture, average carbonation. Finishes with a light bitterness, fruits, coriander and yeast. An alcoholic bite at the end. Reminds me of a dubbel, good not excellent. Non-Christmas beer, despite the name.

mabband (66) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - DEC 23, 2012
Gul øl, meget livlig med masser af storboblende skum. Sødlig duft af karamel. Smager meget sødt. Meget boblende i munden til at starte med, men dør rimelig hurtigt. Smager af appelsin og sukker. Eftersmag af overmoden pære. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

yngwie (14008) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - DEC 19, 2012
Bottle, 75cl corked. It’s a more or less clear one, dark golden in color and with a dense, two-finger off-white head. Sugary, caramel-ish aroma with a generic fruityness and some spiced notes. Cinnamo and cloves it seems. The flavor has a touch of something cellar like, with caramel, spice notes, white sugar and a fruityness. Medium body, a bit effervescent. Lasting sugary and caramel finish with a touch of spices. A quite decent beer, but rather boring, especially as a Christmas beer. 121219
