From bottle. Dark golden with a foamy head. Caramel, bread and pilsner hops. Sweet and slightly sour with typical hop bitterness. Like others from Skagen Bryghus. This is a decent beer, well crafted but for me it lacks some character. llkc (2341) - århus, DENMARK - DEC 9, 2016

Nice, heavy aroma of malt, caramel and alcohol. Thick, duo coloured (offwhite/light brown) head that dissappear fairly quickly. Thin, short and slightly bitter taste. Alcohol, malt. Short aftertaste. Light Christmas beer that will satisfy most women and beginners. ken1 (2003) - DENMARK - NOV 6, 2016

As a Norwegian who has grown up not only in Denmark, but actually in Skagen, I find that rating Christmas Beers can be a bit of a double edged sword. Unlike Norway, Danish Christmas Beers tend to taste the same, year from year, be produced in a more industrial way, and offer fewer surprises. In fact, most of them taste like sweet bock beers. But with the whole craft beer revolution, Danes have started challenging the norm and offer up a large variety of Christmas themed beers. But, not in the Norwegian way. More in a Belgian or American way. So when drinking this Klitnisse (A "fawn" of the beach dunes) I of course have in mind that the beer is from my hometown of Skagen and is made by a microbrewery. Well, that doesn’t really apply here. Skagen craft fine beers, but not perhaps inside the modern "Craft Beer Revolution". Beers tend to be Pilsner, Lager, Kølsh, Vienna and Bocks. Not a lot of Belgian styles or American "kick in the teeth" style hop bombs. So, this is a very typical Danish Christmas Beer, fitting the old school (despite its micro credentials). All that aside, the beer works really well with Danish Christmas foods, it looks good (nice and red) with a thick head and its sweetly malty finish does help the fatty foods on their way, allthough the aquavite strangles it completly. This beer won best Christmas Beer at the Nordic Beer Festical in Frederikshavn 2015. I thought it deserved it. But had it come up against a Norwegian Christmas Beer, well, then I am sad to say it would have had little to put up with

Igen en af de juleøl, der egentlig blot er en bock, hvor man har anvendt en mørk malttype. Det er der, efter min mening, ikke meget jul over. Holmen1 (5874) - Stavanger, NORWAY - DEC 6, 2015
Flaske hos Odd Gunnar, rbhd-treff 5.12.15: mahognyfarge med beige skum. Aroma: smør, fløtekarameller og krydder. Det samme i smaken, som er ganske rund. Fint karbonert. Krydder i ettersmaken, og med ok bitterhet. Grei nok, men ikke mer - selv om den kom seg mot slutten,
