2.3 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle from Systembolaget. 29 SEK. Tested yesterday evening at the yearly Winter/Christmas seasonal brew testing.
Pours an average size frothy head and has a clean amber appearance with a light reddish hue. Fairly thick lacing. Light malty and hoppy aromas, with mild toffee. Nice fruity and lightly spiced flavours with some faint hints of cinnamon and a bit of nutmeg. Slight drying and warming sensation. Nice little tingling on the palate as well. Really warm and inviting ale to enjoy by the fireplace on a cold winter’s eve. Doesn’t get better than that! nybol (2247) - DENMARK - JUL 11, 2017
Smager sødlig af karamel, let humlet. Det sødlige smager lidt af frugtagtig. jookos (6836) - FINLAND - MAR 1, 2017
bottle. coppery clear. nice smooth caramelly, bit buttery, butterscotchy caramelly nose. medium bodied, tastes a bit herby metallic, slight nutty caramelly. some spicing. malty, caramels, burnt sugary. bit nutty buttery. fine by me. isn’t a really heavily xmassy- spiced drink, unless that buttery thing is it. and it isn’t an unpleasant faulty buttery note, just sorta rounding soothing one.

Great strength with lots of warming flavours present. It’s a pity this beer is not available all year round. One of my favourites. stravale (3078) - Co. Westmeath, IRELAND - JAN 22, 2017

God, men noget ordinær engelsk strong ale. Tilpas med sødme i smagen. Flot udseende og skum. g_georgiou (575) - CYPRUS - JAN 18, 2017
Clear orange body with a thin white head. Aroma is malty, grainy, toffee. Taste is sweet and light bitter. Watery texture, soft carbonation, light body. Finn (7547) - Tromsø, NORWAY - JAN 11, 2017
Flaske 500ml. Spandert av Rune. Delt med ham og djoeye i WCveien 9 Jan 17. Gyldenbrun. Middels høyt skum med litt farge. Pen kniplingslacing. God aroma av honning & karamell med hint av frukt. Smaken som aromaen. Bra fylde. Grei - men litt tungdrikkelig. Ikke mye julepreg.

500ml bottle bought at Systembolaget PK-huset,. Stable pearl white head, spotty lacing. Bright amber in body colour. Smell of dried fruits and caramel. Malt-fruity flavours of honey, caramel and dried fruits, lightly spiced with cinnamon. Malt-fruity end, rather sweet. Fine bodied. Nice, a bit heavy to drink though (Shared with Finn and djoeye at a session in Tromsø, 09.01.2017). djoeye (4615) - Tromsø, NORWAY - JAN 10, 2017
Aroma; honey, caramel, mild dry prunes, xmas raisins. Look; big fine off white head, golden clear body.
Taste; honey, caramel, toffee, apple, dry prunes, some raisins – monotone sweet finish.
Feel; ok. Overall; sweet thing, no holiness.
