Lore (2284) - Budapest, HUNGARY - DEC 3, 2016
clear dark amber colour, moderate sized yellowish off-white head; aroma of biscuits, floral and fruity notes, toffee toasted bread and some roasted nuts;taste is similar to the aroma, but with definitely much less complexity; Iím not fully convinced by this ale - seems to be something what is brewed exclusively to ride the wave of holiday season...

inbirraveritas (1524) - Budapest, HUNGARY - DEC 2, 2016
Bottled, 500 ml. Clear copper one with a small filmy beige head on it, which diminishes with time completely. Nutty, fruity nose. Taste of marmalade, aroma brings caramel, nuts, citrusses, toasty hints... mouthfeel is slick, bit sticky. Nutty, tart citrus fruity finish. Nice.

fiddur (3) - SWEDEN - DEC 2, 2016 does not count
Nice rich taste. Quite sweet, fits well for a winter ale. The hops keep in the background of a roasted bread flavour.

Cristobal37 (848) - Budapest, HUNGARY - NOV 26, 2016
Clear brown little head. Malty caramel aroma. Similar bitterness to London Pride, but with a bigger body and loads more malts. Filling beer. Long dry piney bittetness lingers on the palate. Another good one from Fullerís.

Turtles (2186) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - NOV 12, 2016
500ml bottle from Systembolaget. Clear amber with a fluffy tanned head, rich sticky lacing around the glass. Malty aroma with dried fruit, caramel, bread, earthy, woody and grains. Soft carbonated, medium-bodied, smooth and quite dry mouthfeel. The taste is malty and toasted, herbal bitter, earthy hops, mild spicy, bread, caramel and grains. Pleasant bitterness in the finish.

Pours clear amber liquid with a foamy off-white head. Aroma is malt and caramel. Spicy taste with a nice hop biterness. A bit rough on the palate, but still drinkable.

Brewhemia (241) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - NOV 3, 2016
Amber beer with thick slightly off white head. Nice sweet and slightly toasty aroma. Hints if toffee and cough drops. The taste is mild caramel sweetness with a toasty bitter finish. Actually a really nice christmas/winter brew I think.
