Amber color with an ok head. There is not much aroma, but maybe it brings some sweetness. Has a rather weak flavor, a boring beer... TBone (18209) - Pori, FINLAND - DEC 20, 2005

Ruby red, small tan head. Roasted, spicey, pleasant aroma. Malty, roasted flavor, long roasted, a bit hoppy aftertaste. Balanced roasted malts, complex enough and certainly one of the better Spendrups brews.
Bottle, 5.3%. OK aroma, hint of brown sugar. Nice dark brown colour, clear red shine. Small light brown head. Good roasted flavour. Quite sweet, dark malts. Rune (13494) - Tromsø, NORWAY - DEC 28, 2006
Some beers and food at a late lunch gathering with Finn and Catweazle during Die Stadezeit. A 330ml bottle of this Swedish yule beer came first and stood forth in a clear, red-brown coloured body with a moderate brownish head. Malty aroma with notes of plums. Balanced flavour of roasted grain with taste of dry bitterness in the ending. Rounded mouthfeel (28.12.2006). Bov (13221) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - DEC 13, 2002

Botella. Clear dark brown colour. Sweet malty mildly spiced aroma. Sweet, bit bready caramel well toasted malty flavour with some spice ending with a soft bitter-sweet finish. gnoff (10891) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - NOV 19, 2006
(50 cl can from Swedish Systembolaget) Sweet scent, not much else. Clear red color, tan head. Dry roasted a bit metallic and buttery taste. Papery and stale aftertaste. Cardboard oxidated taste. Astringent bitterness. KimJohansen (10497) - Frederiksberg C, DENMARK - DEC 30, 2008
Mahogany with a huge deep beige head. Sweet aroma with roasted malt, caramel and hints chocolate. Sweet flavour with burned caramel and roasted malt. Finished sweet. A bit to sweet. deanso (10101) - Chiang Mai, THAILAND - NOV 3, 2010
50cl can from IKEA delft.
Amber colour. Ok beer. Much better than the awful lagers I had to endure when I lived in Sweden 14 years ago.
