2.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle from Systembolaget. 13 SEK (cheapest "Christmas beer"). Tested yesterday evening at the yearly Winter/Christmas seasonal brew testing.
Bottle. Light with notes of knäckebröd, caramel and herbs. Add some julmust and youve got yourself an OK mumma. Cunningham (8528) - Halden, NORWAY - JUN 5, 2015
Clear nutty color with an ok tan head. Deep caramel malty and herbal aroma. Medium body and an average carbonation. Tad sweet and a moderate bitterness. Caramel dominating flavor with some strange fruity and herbal notes. Meh.Finn (8305) - Tromsø, NORWAY - DEC 31, 2014

Boks 500ml fra Systembolaget, Kiruna. Drukket i Skibotn 22 Des 14. Mørk gyldenbrun. Middels høyt luftig skum som varer en stund. Aroma av karamell & metall. Smaken svakt fruktig. Ananas. Kunstig og lite julepreg.

Thanks to djoeye for bringing a 500ml can from Systembolaget Kiruna to Tromsø. Patchy, bubbly surface. Clear amber coloured body. Floury aroma with hints of brown malts. Flavours of bread, vegetables, and hard water. Missing tail. Soft carbonated. Rather tasteless and empty stuff (26.12.2014). lassemi (28) - NORWAY - DEC 23, 2014
Dark brown. Scent of alcohol, yeast, chocolate. Taste is a little watery and slightly of chocolate and coffee. Noticeable yeast in after taste.
Boring and thin.

Body’s dark amber brown, loose and diminishing pearl head. Poor lacing.
Aroma; mild caramel malts and a loaf of white bread.
Taste; bready malts, wort, bready hops.
Feels as macro lager. Aftertaste has bread, and some sweet roasted chestnuts and dark sweet syrup. Overall, maybe it was brewed in a hurry this year.

50cl can from Systembolaget, Strömstad. Pours clear copper coloured with an off-white head. Mild malty and caramelly aroma with metallic notes, hints of rubber, spices and herbs. Sweet and unpleasant with some bitterness in the finish. Not a beer I would want to drink again. Cool_Bond (2848) - KUNG_AV_OL @ Instagram, SWEDEN - DEC 23, 2013
Good aroma of fruit. Good taste but unfortunately it is also metallic, too. Good aftertaste that may not be left for too long. Very special and good beer. Follow me @ Kung av öl @ Facebook for more pictures and ratings. olsvammel (7312) - Örebro, SWEDEN - DEC 15, 2013
Sample at a Systembolaget tasting. Fruity with an artificial feeling and also a bit skunky, almost sweaty or like onions. Sweet and mild taste. Feels a bit like a mix between cider and beer. Not good. HULK777 (646) - - DEC 8, 2013
UPDATED: NOV 15, 2015 Caramel aroma with hints of fruit and peppermint candy cane. Taste is very sweet and sticky. Strawberries dominate. Imagine barley wine without the spices, and much more bland. Watery in the aftertaste; also sticky and metallic.
