3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours amber red with about an inch of frothy head. Aroma of hay/hops and sweetness. Taste is spicy, medium sweet with a nutty/caramel character. light bitterness and dry. Between light and medium body, carbonation is fizzy and on the average side. Finish is of medium duration and has caramel and slight bitter notes. Overall a nice dark lager, one of my favorites. This is a christmas brew so it’s limited quantity and one of the beer i keep for spare.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Clear red with a small head. Red apple malt, light esters, maraschino cherries and such with that generic Northern European Christmas spice character. Medium-light body, decent frothiness, but it’s your basic amber / red malt with allspice powder added. Thankfully not flawed like the other Kaldi beers, just boring.

Bottle looks good but a bit complex. Beer in the glass zippy, nice head. Starts mild, modest malty, not too dry. Fruity hints in the background. Finish still mild, well balanced. Quite drinkable. Okay!

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottled at Íslenski barinn, Reykjavík. Clear amber, rich head. Slight lemony nose with plenty of butterscotch. Mid sweet with medium body and well rounded mouthfeel. Tart butterscotch dominates. Low bitterness. Has the relaxed malt character that I really enjoyed in the first beers from Bruggsmidjan, but also signs of infection which is worrying.
