Bottle. Sampled at Bishops Arms, V.Hamngatan, Göteborg.
Copper colour with big foam. Pale malty aroma, reminiscent of a pilsner. Malt based flavour with chocolate notes and almond paste. Earthy hoppiness and bit bitter. KAggie97 (3529) - Ugly, Hot, and Humid Spring, Texas, USA - DEC 15, 2007
Bottle. Pours a nice, deep brown with a great head (hehe). Aroma of earthy vegetables and stale hops that do nothing for me. Ugh! I sipped this crap and was greeted with garbage-disposal vegetables and mutant (yes, mutant) malt. Yuck. Watery mouthfeel. I assume the reindeer in question are revolting against being implicated in this crappy beverage.

Body is med/light with a pleasent carbonation, a touch oily. Dry malt flavors, light woodiness, caramel, citrus notes and a gentle breadiness. Dry, lightly fruity finish.
