Bottles, shared at Holmen Nanobryggeri’s annual Christmas/Yule beer tasting. ABV 7.2%. Clear golden colour, moderate white head. Spicy aroma. Moderately spicy flavour. Decent and drinkable, but a bit too far out on the "light" end of what is acceptable for a Christmas brew.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bright gold body, decent pillow of modestly thick head. Aroma of grains and some off-hand grassy rottenness on the back end. Taste is a load of malt boosted by hoppy notes, and then a dry finish. Almost like chewing on the mistletoe. Yet, it’s drinkable.
