2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle. Clear dark amber colour with small head. Very watery palate some weak malty flavour, Like a discount danish xmas ale (Tuborg).
Can, 500 ml. Caramel, metal, spruce - these smells hit you after it is poured. Brown and orange in colour. Flat carmel taste, fizzy, short. Unsuccessful even as cheap macro christmas brew. mzaar (3490) - Varberg, SWEDEN - DEC 6, 2016
Burk 50 cl. Klar bärnstensfärgad med ett rikligt smutsvitt skum. Dofter och smaker av karamell, nöt och malt. Lätt beska, urvattnad kropp, nötig avslutning. Wischylini (324) - Praha, CZECH REPUBLIC - DEC 2, 2016
Appearance Pours a reddish amber, with a medium-sized sand coloured head, some lacing. Tjomleif (236) - NORWAY - NOV 21, 2016
Aroma Malty butterscotch, dried fruit, raisins, bread and biscuits, hints of herbal hops
Taste Mildly sweet, with a distinct bitterness that serves as a very nice counterbalance to the sweetness
Palate Mildly carbonated, with a slightly watery mouthfeel
0,5l can. Amber of color with a beige head. A flavor of malt, caramel and sweets. A flavor of malt and sweets. No hops at all. aleksander9 (1789) - Oslo, NORWAY - DEC 25, 2015

How: Can appearance: deep red color with a medium white head. Aroma: caramel, bread, raisins and syrup. Palate: light body, average to high carbonation. Nonshaugen (624) - Fetsund, NORWAY - NOV 17, 2015
2015 vintage. 50 cl can. Dark amber to reddish brown, three-finger dark tan to light brown foamy head, nice lacing, a few lazy bubbles moving upwards. Subdued aroma of dark, bready malts and christmas cookies. Mouthfeel is medium, dry and bitter. Lots of flavours going on. Dark malts, caramel, toffee and spices, really good for a 4,6% ABV beer. Big question, will I buy it again? And again? Oh, yes, I will. In my opinion, Ringnes have done a way better job with this, than many of the other major brands in Norway this christmas. (And I’m no great fan of Ringnes...) Cunningham (8079) - Halden, NORWAY - JAN 27, 2015

Aroma: Mostly deep caramel malty.

Taste: Toffee, caramel malty and mild fruity.
Overall impression: Well…not bad, but….Mild easy drinkable amber lager.
Personal stats: Bottle from local grocery store in Halden, Norway
0,5l can, 2014. Dark, cola colour. Minimal head. Sweet lager aroma. Slight port aroma. Taste of raisins and lager. Like a raisin pilsner. For an xmas brew, I’m not horribly disappointed, and for a lager, it’s not too bad (I’m not a huge fan of lagers, generally speaking). VictorSA (182) - NORWAY - DEC 2, 2014
Litt kunstig aroma av rosiner og malt. Litt sukkersøt, men ellers grei.
