2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle, bought at Havnens Vin & Tobak, Vejle. Deep redish brown with a small, creamy, off-white film head. Light toffee aroma with a little fruitiness. Highish carbonation, fair mouthfeel. Flavour is a little bland, some light roasted toffee, quite sugary sweet and with limited dryness. There is not much Christmas about this, though.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
It is red-brown with a little sediment floating and a huge, creamy head. The aroma has notes of roasted malt, butterscotch and light fruit. The flavour has a light sweetness, notes of butterscotch, candy sugar, preserved pumpkin and a slightly dry finish. As a Christmas brew, this is pretty anonymous.
