Klart mahognifarget med fint skum som forsvinner fort. Krydret duft med kardemomme og ingefær sammen med noe eple. Krydret smak, som en krydret bitter dram. Denne var god.

Bottle. The taste is a bit flat and quite sweet. Borders between a beer and a malty soda.

Typical Danish Christmas beer. Fair amount of spices, although not really dark like it says, and slightly thin.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Copenhagen 2/1 2016. 40 cl bottle from Kvickly. Nice special bottle by the way. Pours slightly hazy reddish brown with white head. Settles as thin layer of foam. Aroma is quite sweet. Brown sugar, cinnamon, caramel, yeast and various spices. Low carbonation and oily palate. Taste follows the nose. Rather spicy and sweet hints of yeast and orange peel. Quite fine for this type of overly sweet seasonal brew. But it is ok that it's only available for a few months every year.

Bottle 40cl. Caramelised colored medium head diminishing. Sugary texture. Good carbonation. Red brown color, a bit hazy. Aroma is leaves, earth, sugar syrup, cloves, roasted malt. Sweet taste of sap and caramel. Flat for the palate compared to visible carbonation level.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle, 40cl. Pours light brown, reddish tea or cola-like colour with small, beige head. Spicy aroma with cinnamon, ginger, cloves, pepper and almonds. Malt, sweetish caramel flavour with some of the spices along at first. Then follows some ripe fruits, ginger and cloves. Ends with light pepper and cinnamon. Some yeast and wheat alongside. Warming alcohol on a medium body. Great for a cold winterday. Quite alright.

(2) Not worth trying. There is no christmas in this bottle - where is it? It is not that balanced - to the extend that I would buy this beer again. It might be better on tap.

En rimelig juleøl. Ikke brunkage på flaske, men en fin smag af let krydderier. Ikke det store sus, men rimelig.
