3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Aroma: The smell is dominated by citric notes, lemon and grapefruit. A hint of sweetness, dried fruits.
Appearance: The beer is dark brown, with hints of red. The foam rather light beige, leaving lots of lacing.
Taste: This beer is very sweet, like most Swedish "Christmas Beers", it is somewhat balanced with some citric acids. Bitter notes are nice but however too quickly receding.
Palate: The fluid has small bubbles, and is easy to drink.
Note: Serving type: bottle

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
500 ml bottle. Dark brown with a reddish hue. Tall off-white fluffy coarse head. Grainy malt aroma with a hint of roasted malts. Grassy hops. High bitterness upfront. Light bodied, but there is quite a bit of hops and a chocolatey maltiness. Distinct lager character. The hops are one-dimensional and does not really fit with the malts. After a while it all mellows out. Overall this is a really nice Christmas beer from a macro brewery.
