larsga (7509) - Oslo, NORWAY - FEB 18, 2008
Medium offwhite head. Copper body with light carbonation. Fruity, lemony aroma with notes of lime. Sweetish fruity lemony taste, again with a kind of lime background. Clean, medium mouthfeel. Dry malty caramelly aftertaste dominated by the same lemon/lime character. Not terribly complex, and extremely unusual, but quite OK. This is really the beer Corona should have been. What the association with Christmas could possibly be I really couldn’t say. (0.65l bottle from the wine monopoly.)

Idiosynkrasie (7435) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - FEB 5, 2012
650ml bottle. Clear copper with yellowish off-white head. Grainy aroma, hay and straw, minimal alcohol note. Taste is sweet caramel, fizzy grainy and slightly alcoholic finish. Nothing special.

Sigmund (7390) - Tau, NORWAY - NOV 7, 2007
650 ml green glass bottle, entirely covered in very "christmasy" plastic foil. Courtesy of Cardinal pub, Stavanger. Also available in Norway at Vinmonopolet, bestillingsutvalget. ABV is 5.8%. Clear and deep golden colour, large and lasting head. Fruity and spicy aroma with notes of farm kitchen, quite nice. The flavour has some of the "spritziness" of other bières-de-garde, but is sweeter, with caramel. Artificial "aroma" (whatever that may be) has been added, hmmm ... That is probably what I get some candy / pear drops notes from. Moderate hops in the finish. Not your typical Christmas beer, but drinkable.

KnutAlbert (6754) - Oslo, NORWAY - NOV 12, 2007
Dark gold, a bit yeasty. Lots of Christmas spiciness. Cinnamon, almonds, over a fine body. A little citrus, too. Nice.

Braudog (6675) - Yorktown, Virginia, USA - DEC 11, 2013
Bottle. Deep, dark golden beer with a prototypical lager head. Drinks with a rich, clean, malty goodness. There’s a hint of some viscous alcohol, but not that much. Thicker and "gooder" than your standard lagers, but built on that baseline. (#5359, 12/11/2013)

Beer5000 (6453) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JAN 4, 2008
650ml bottle. Clear golden body with intensive carbonation and a small off/white head. The aroma is vague malty and a bit perfumed (spices?), don’t like that smell. Flavor is quite mild malty with some kind of perfumed bitterness. Watery body and not well-balanced, a bit to thin and sweet. Forget the Christmas stash, the world has room for a wider idea of a suitable beer for the season than Norwegians. As a Bière de Garde I find this more ordinary and with a lack of the flavors I expect compared with others I have sampled. To ordinary and weak.

2.6
RobertDale (6388) - Lansing, Kansas, USA - FEB 3, 2013
Bottle. Pours a clear gold with an average off-white head. Aroma of malt, caramel, and fruit. Taste is sweet malt, caramel, fruit, and a bit of spice. OK.

2.7
kappldav123 (6097) - GERMANY - OCT 25, 2010
Bottle looks very good, really christmas-like. Beer in the glass copper-coloured, small head. Starts strong and spicy, like a good festbier. But the finish is more and more metallically and dry, not as spicy as the beginning. Not my favourite.

2.4
Emil (6065) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - DEC 29, 2007
Bottle. A golden to amber beer with a white head. The aroma is of caramel malt and light fruity. The taste is sweet caramel malt, and fruity. Medium body with a light dry finsh.

2.8
jaghana (6016) - Strasbourg (Alsace), FRANCE - NOV 3, 2009
Bottle 75cl. An dark amber beer with a big white head. The beer is not complex at all, very less malty, the bitter-orange taste is too present (like drinking beer with Picon). Quite disepointing beer less intresting than the Pils one.
