Backlog - Bottle from Systembolaget. One of the better winter-seasonals we get to see around here. stecken (174) - SWEDEN - DEC 20, 2013
Bottle. Clear copper with white head. Aroma and taste is caramel, butterscotch, dried fruits, crisp bread. Smooth mouthfeel. Quite sweet finish with slight bitterness. Cool_Bond (2673) - KUNG_AV_OL @ Instagram, SWEDEN - DEC 1, 2013
Malty and think I feel a little clove. The taste is closer to a brown ale. But much watering taste. Thin aftertaste. No impressive beer at all. Follow me @ Kung av öl @ Facebook for more pictures and ratings. Pyrmir (6094) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - JUL 16, 2013

Pours dark copper colored with tiny head. Smells malty-spicy with some toffee and caramel. Starts with some roasted malts and lots of caramel, some chocolate is noticeable. The middle part has lots of caramel malts, toffee, herbs and some roasted malts. Goes into a roasted malty finish with soem aroma hops, herbs and caramel. Very nice one!
Smak och doft av humle, malt, karamell, bränt socker och blommiga toner. Lätt kropp, en aning för söt med avslutande enkel beska. Leini (2054) - SWEDEN - FEB 3, 2013
500ml bottle, 2012 edition. Clear copper/brown body with a brief white crown. Ginger, orange, cinnamon and dried fruits. Brief bitterness. Light carbonation. A pretty thin beer, but not at all bad. KnutAlbert (6754) - Oslo, NORWAY - JAN 28, 2013
Sweet, malty, soft, silky. This is a fairly elegant take on the traditional Scandinavian Christmas beers, but it is too sweet to get really good grades. Pleasant round mouth feel. rarbring (2294) - Linköping, SWEDEN - DEC 5, 2012
Aroma: Rather weak smell, some sweet malty tones. some citric alcoholic nuances.klas (413) - SWEDEN - DEC 2, 2012
Appearance: A copper-toned, orange clear beer. Lots of bubbles but little head, that leaves nothing on the glass.
Taste: The taste is mostly sweet, some malty, raisiny impression. Some sharp bitterness that goes away quickly. Alcohol and some acidness is noticed.
Palate: Good carbonation and "easy to drink".
Overall: Not a favorite.
