santabeer (68) - Kristiansand, - OCT 30, 2012
UPDATED: OCT 25, 2013 Bought at a supermarked. ABV 4.5, can. 2012 edition. Caramel aroma. Fruity taste with the aftertaste of yeast. As best I can do, great beer! :) Update October 26, 2013: Much better this year. Taste of coffe. I love it! :-)

StilleStorm (1579) - Stavanger, NORWAY - APR 25, 2015
DAA; Can 0, 5 L. Pours large, hazy cobber, frothy with a long lived and lacing, tan head. Aroma moderate to heavy malt and dark fruit, light nutts, grass and spice. Taste is moderate to heavy sweet and light bitter with a somewhat lasting finish. Body is medium, texture is oily, carbonation is soft.

Holmen1 (6476) - Stavanger, NORWAY - DEC 13, 2014
UPDATED: DEC 19, 2014 0,5 boks delt med Hans etter juleforestillingen: brunlig mahogny med beige skum som varer. God aroma av ristet brød, mørk karamell, nøtter og litt sjokolade. Fin karbonering gir god munnfylde, og smaken er nøtteaktig mørk og god. Fint balansert bitterhet. En riktig god juleøl i det %lette segment.

Wischylini (356) - Praha, CZECH REPUBLIC - NOV 14, 2014
UPDATED: NOV 14, 2015 Appearance Clear light amber, with a small off-white head.
Aroma Corn, malts, bread, skunk, butterscotch, raisins
Taste Sweet, unbalanced, lacking in bitterness
Palate Thin, highly carbonated, short aftertaste
Overall The recipe must have been changed between 2014 and 2015, as I remembered this beer as being more assertively hopped, and with herbal notes and a more balanced taste

Bamsen78 (5562) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - NOV 23, 2013
Bottle @ Scooper Tasting in Ulfborg. Pours clear copper brown with airy off-white head. Dusty aroma with notes of malt and fruit. Sweetish, fruity flavour, with sour and hoppy notes. Bitter, dusty finish. Not off but weird.
