330ml bottle, 2012 edition. Amber body, with a beige head. Malty flavor with cispbread, butterscotch, orange peel and honey. Short ending with a hint of bitterness. Light body and carbonation. A good x-mas beer, but a bit too thin. ogivlado (7955) - Zagreb, CROATIA - JAN 24, 2013
Bottled 330ml. -Darker amber coloured, small beige head, mild spicy nose. Slight roasted malt, caramel and spices with pleasant hoppy notes. Dry bitter finish. Quite nice. ElDesmadre (3630) - Mikołów, POLAND - JAN 10, 2013
Bottle traded with Cunningham. The bready and nutty malty base has citrusy and grassy-earthy hop notes shimmering through. I like it how they managed to underline the hop-blend in this one. Medium body, velvety carbo and a medium bitterness. Dry, nutty and tea-like finish. A lovely vienna! Kronebryg (1124) - Sorgenfri, DENMARK - DEC 27, 2012
Little head, clear brown. Light nose with a hint of cinnamon and caramel. Medium body and length. Taste is orange, chocko and caramel. NordicV (2464) - Malmö, Sweden, SWEDEN - DEC 26, 2012
Rödbrun öl med ett smutsvitt skum. Doft av malt och kola med inslag av nötter. Samma återkommer i smaken tillsammans med torra jordiga toner, viss kryddighet och citrusbeska.

Karamell, torkad frukt och nötighet i doften. Viss maltsötma, men jag hade önskat mer, i smaken. Karamell, apelsin och en del julkryddor. AndySnow (8011) - Huddinge, SWEDEN - DEC 11, 2012

A very tasty and fresh christmas ale I can recommend it at both for dinner and on it’s own rarbring (2295) - Linköping, SWEDEN - DEC 5, 2012
Aroma: The smell is built from sweet dried fruits, a dash of toffee and some citric fruits, mostly grapefruit. A grassy freshness is noted.klas (416) - SWEDEN - DEC 2, 2012
Appearance: This beer has a copper toned brown color with a beige foam that leaves good lacing in the glass.
Taste: Taste is mostly a malty bread flavor with rather little sweetness, and hoppy aromas in the bitter orange area.
Palate: The carbonation was rather weak, with small tingly bubbles.
Overall: In all a good beer, complementing a smorgasbord rather well.
