yngwie (17038) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - MAY 14, 2006
Bottled. A nice copper-colored beer with an off-white to beige head. The nose has caramel and malt, with a light touch of fruits and grains. Flavor-profile is like a traditional Norwegian Christmas beer, with sweet caramel-malts and a balanced hop-profile, but without the notes of alcohol. It has a lightly dusty mouthfeel and a medium body, and a bitter, and slightly dry finish. (060428)

4 caramel and lager,
3 lager with caramel added
5 caramelly lager, touch of wool later
3 some crispness as a lager, but some smoothness brought on by the caramel
9 so, did they put caramalt in this? dont’t know what’s wrong with this, if anything, but it’s just dull. Touch of washing machine detergent. Not a complete disaster, but I expect more from them.

MiP (15650) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - MAR 22, 2006
Bottle. Dark amber colour. Unstable, colaish head. Quite dusty flavour. Pleasant enough, but a bit boring. Low bitterness.

gunnfryd (14828) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - MAY 6, 2006
Bottle. Light brown colour with a beige head.. Roasted caramel and malt aroma.. Dry roasted caramel and malt flavour. Light bitter finish.

bierkoning (13297) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - JUN 22, 2010
Bottle from Tbone, thanks! Amber color. Bready spicy aroma. Spicy flavor with rye bread, cardemom and anis. Sweet but luckily with a subtle spicing.

madsberg (11762) - Søborg, DENMARK - SEP 6, 2006
Bottled. Amber coloured. Light hazy. Small light beige head. Very high carbonated. Fruity and sweet aroma. Light notes of dark chocolate. A bit bland. Flavour is a bit better. Chocolate, fruits, light citrus and spice. Medium bodied. Ends on a fruity and citric note.

rosenbergh (11532) - Tampere, FINLAND - MAR 18, 2012
500 ml bottle. Finland.
Clear copper colour with small white head. Caramel, chocolate, roasted malt and hay in aroma. Flavour is not so roasted but still with chocolate and lots of malt. Easy to drink but not necessarily that good.

olio (10168) - Tampere, FINLAND - MAR 9, 2013
50 cl bottle.
Originally rated on 20100122.
Pours dark copper color with a small head. Aroma of malts, some grain, grass and some fruit notes. Flavor of hay, malts, grain and caramel.

gyllenbock (9100) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - MAR 14, 2013
Bottle from Systembolaget, e-order in February 2013. Clear dark copper with a medium, creamy white head. Aroma and taste of malt, chocolate, light roasted, dried fruit and nuts. Soft and easy to drink. I kind of liked this relaxed beer.

Hansen (8587) - Assentoft, DENMARK - JAN 31, 2003
I don't like the aroma (ceralic?), and the head goes of to quickly. But the taste and finish is strong and full of hops. Long lasting dry final.
