[thank you, Myrup]
Pours a light muddy red with a great creamy yellowish head - with super lacing. Aroma is very nicely hoppy, grapefruit and a background of sweet caramel. Super-dry mouthfeel. Flavour i nicely hoppy and includes some spices amongst roasted and caramel maltiness. Super surprise!
(on bottle, thanx to thewolf) Dark colored, beige head. Fruity, minty and a hardpowered maltaroma. There´s an estery and hoppy feel to this, as in US strong ales, even though UK types are used. Even though it has a dark and malted profile, the hops are floating above it all, givin great balance. Warmth up and gets quite peppery in the end. Very nice beer indeed. faroeviking (10913) - FAROE ISLANDS - MAR 2, 2008
Bottle. Cloudy orange-brown colour. Fruity, pine hoppy aroma. Nice mouthfeel. The flavour has a very soft pine fruity hoppy spiced flavour. Great brew! yngwie (17053) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - APR 6, 2008
Bottle, thx to thewolf. Copper-colored, unclear beer with a beige head leaving lacings. Lovely aroma of American hops with pinecones, citrus and grapefruit, as well as a malty sweetness. Nice sweet and malty flavor with caramel and loads of piney and citrusy hops. Quite low on bitterness. Medium body. A bit thin and sure not a Christmas beer in my book, but besides that, it’s a great beer. (080301) TBone (17544) - Pori, FINLAND - NOV 14, 2009

Deep ruby, a bit murky, off-white head. Woody, American hoppy, a bit sweet nose. Caramelly, Amarillo hoppy flavor, quite mellow mouthfeel, aged quite nicely. Balanced. Not very Christmasy.
Bottle. A dark red brown beer with a big beige head. Dusty caramel malt, heavy hopped, pine, peach aroma and taste. Medium body with a dry finish. Even though it´s not realy a X-mas beer but more like a IPA, I´ll drink this for X-mas anytime. kusken (7) - Fredericia, DENMARK - JAN 8, 2008 does not count

[Courtesy of Myrup, session @ yespr] Brown with tiny off white head. Sweet aroma with loads of hops, grapefruit and caramel notes. Sweet flavor with roasted malt, hops and caramel. HenrikSoegaard (14176) - Randers, DENMARK - DEC 4, 2008
Bottle. 2008. Creamy off-white excellent fully lasting head. Brown colour. Heavy malty and hopy aroma. Veru nice. Moderate btter flavor. Average moderate bitter finish. Creamy palate. Fantastic well-balanced beer but no way a PALE ale! Maria (10212) - Thisted, DENMARK - DEC 24, 2008
It is mahogany-red with a huge, creamy head. The aroma has notes of roasted malt, caramel, fruity hops, citrus and a little raisin. The flavour has a light sweetness and notes of roasted malt, caramel, fruit, different citrus fruits, light raisin, a nice bitterness and a nice caramel foundation. It is an interesting and nice mix of hoppy fruitiness and more traditional, malty sweet Christmas beer.
