Boks. Lys klar karamellfarge. Beige skumtopp. Lavt karbonert. Smaker malt, korn, karamell, humle. Noe gress. Helt grei men ikke noe ekstraordinært

This was very good. It poured a medium brown color with an off-white head. The taste was malty with nots of caramel in the flavor. Finish was dry and I would recommend this beer as it is a nice change to so many hoppy holiday beers.

Mørk brun farge. Aroma av noe sødme. Er veldig lettdrikkelig og får ikke noe særlig juleølfølelse av denne...

Bottled. This one didn’t really have anything going for it. Malt was overpowered any flavot it had.

33cl bottle at Frognerseteren restaurant. It poured a red-brown colour with a small beige head that settled down fast in the glass. The aroma is sweet, tempting and smells of malts, yeast and raisins. The flavour is bittersweet and tastes of coffee and roasted malts. It has a short aftertaste.It is a decent christmas beer, but nothing outstanding.

One blizzardy St. Pats in Boston, my friends and I got downtown too late to get into our favorite Guinnessing pubs and retreated to Julie’s place. She had bought this beer for the name and we dutifully, if a little sadly, quafed it, noting the spiciness. Not enough to replce a St. pats Stout, but rich enough to be there to soothe the disappointment.
