3.1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
330ml bottle. Deep ruby red colour with an off-white head that dissipates quickly. Not sure about the aroma - some malt but also an odd egginess. Tastes much better. A little toast, malt and a late developing but robust bitterness. Pretty well balanced and quite enjoyable.
A little peculiar aroma - spices but difficult to name them. Also a lot of malts.Malty with caramel as the primary taste impression. Some nuts and very light citrus. There is no standard definition of a Christmas beer - anything seems to go for the brewers. It is true to the lager/vienna style but for Christmas beer I prefer a little more body and alcohol GarageBrewer80 (598) - SWEDEN - MAR 1, 2017

Bottle at home for a Finish Christmas Eve (Swedish beer was the best I could do!). Bought from ScandiKitchen. Biscuit and caramel aroma. Malty. Dark Amber. Bubbly. Scant traces of a head. Medium bitter with a hint of sweetness, before increasing in bitterness into the finish. Relatively light. Soft, pleasantly carbonated, mouthful. Long finish. Nice beer. Not convinced it’s what I’d go for as a ’Christmas party beer’ though, despite that being the translation of its name. BarrelMonger1 (2) - Eskilstuna, SWEDEN - NOV 2, 2016 does not count
A great beer! Great balance on the bitterness and the taste is very good! I am very impressed by this beer! Cheers!

UPDATED: NOV 10, 2015 Bottle from a Systembolaget in Göteborg. A dark amber colour with thick off-white head. Aroma of caramel and hazelnuts. Taste is also of caramel and nuts with a strong grassy bitterness. A little too sweet for me, but still a very pleasant beer. Turtles (2964) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - NOV 6, 2015
