3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. [thanks Feldthaus]
Pours red brown with a small, fizzy, off-white head. Mild aroma, grainy, some chocolate, light metallic, mildly roasted, some walnuts. Highish carbonation, light and dry mouthfeel. Flavour is light yeasty, some cardboard, good chocolate, walnuts, some toasted caramel. Long, lingering malty dry bitterness. Actually quite fine, despite the cardboard.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap. Pours an almost clear amber golden with a creamy beige head. Sweetish caramel aroma, a whiff of pumpernickel also. Quite full-bodied, sweetish caramel yet with a perfectly balancing hopping. A little warming alcohol in the finish. Straight and clean. 201110

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Brown with a small off-white head. The aroma has a bit of a muddy character, with some yeast, DMS vegetable and caramel. Sweet with a touch of licorice flavour, but mostly yeast. I guess I’m quite sensitive to unclean, yeasty lagers

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
20-NOV-2010, bottle @Ekstra Bladets Juleølssmagning.
Red/orange/brown (I cannot decide!) with beige head.
Spicey, not overly yeasty for an X-mas brew.
Sugary and fine.
Light in taste for an X-mas brew.
Slightly sour like most Ebeltoft I have had. A flaw? To me it does not go well with a bock...
