Gangstergafje (1936) - Capelle aan den IJssel, NETHERLANDS - JAN 31, 2019
UPDATED: JAN 31, 2019 31-01-2019; bottle; at home (bought somewhere in Sweden).
The beer looks very nice. The colour of the beer is a lovely blend of amber and ruby red. The beer is crystal clear. Some bubbles are rising towards the top, whether they form a frothy orange-brown tinted layer of foam. It looks quite nice. It has a lovely ruby red glow.
The aroma of the beer is fine. Malts give a nice plain malty note. There are some aromas of liquorice, though not to strong. There is also a tiny bit of winter spice. Also a nice fruity aroma is present, reminding me of lingonberry. Hops give a spicy note, though not to strong. It is quite nice.
The taste of the beer is also nice. Medium sweetness, nice bitter note and a tiny fruity acidity and liquorice savouriness. It is quite well balanced. I like it.
The palate of the beer is average. Light body, a bit rough and medium carbonation. The finish of the beer is short. It has some herbal bitterness, but that's it. Not too interesting in the finish. But, allover, it is a nice beer. fellebag (1673) - Oslo, NORWAY - DEC 11, 2018

UPDATED: FEB 17, 2019 Bottle from Systembolaget, Östersund. Aroma is quite deep, like ilght smoke in the air and malty feel. Taste is quite nondescript but it is incredibly smooth. Apperance is gorgeous. Was not let down by this beer at all and it could be a very nice light accompaniment to xmas food.
Same conditions. felt more darker in flavour this time. more jul öl typ. 3.6 to 3.5 AndreasP (457) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - NOV 7, 2017
A little peculiar aroma - spices but difficult to name them. Also a lot of malts.Malty with caramel as the primary taste impression. Some nuts and very light citrus. There is no standard definition of a Christmas beer - anything seems to go for the brewers. It is true to the lager/vienna style but for Christmas beer I prefer a little more body and alcohol
